Newbie-who loves Rainy

4 posts in this topic

I have been reading this forum for months, but have not been able to post. I think I am getting it figured out.

I've been dying to tell you all how beautiful your lake is and how much my family and I enjoy visiting. We have been coming to Rainy for 6 years now, we visit in August. We have lost two lower units to Rainy Rocks and still return. The Lowrance GPS really has helped there. We have fished with Woody and enjoyed our very afordable stays at Birch Point Camp. We have made a tradition of celebrating our last night in town with pizza and fun and pre season Packers on tv at Giovannis. We have fished the river and enjoyed watching the locals work the Sturgeon. My daughter loves the wild rice soup at Granny's and every morning we hit the One Stop for bait and the daily fishing report. In 6 years we have used the Falls Hospital twice for hook removal and an eye problem and everyone is so nice. I can't think of a more beautiful place on earth. (Some might say I live a very sheltered life). I for one am jealous of the beauty, the peace and the fishing you people experience every day. My husband is in the mortage bussiness and every year I say to him "maybe the Wells Fargo branch in town is hiring". I love the cold weather,too. I would love to experience Rainy on a snowmobile.

So for now I visit this forum daily smile.gif and dream of being in GOD'S country with all of you.Thanks to all of you locals who post regularly to keep me in touch.

God Bless.

Welcome to the Rainy Lake Forum! Yep life in the Northwoods with Rainy lake in the front yard is tough! I'm a guide, and my fiancee is the GM of Woody's. Last year I watched Timberwolves on a couple seperate occassions crossing the hardwater. This is an area for the true outdoor people otherwise the winters will get to you. We love the hardwater season, and enjoy spending the weekend in the sleeper out on the lake catching walleyes. I guess you'll have to come up and spend some time out on the ice! You'll be hooked Literally.

Welcome once again!

HI P. NORTS,

HAPPY YOU FIGURED IT OUT, AND FROM THE SOUNDS OF IT YOU WOULD FIT RIGHT IN, WE LOVE LIVING HERE. WERE A VERY LAID BACK, CALM SPIRITED TYPE PEOPLE. WE DO NOT LIVE IN THE BIG CITY BECAUSE WE CHOOSE NOT TO. PEOPLE WHO FREQUENT THIS SITE OFTEN SUCH AS SCOTT, CHRIS, DOUG, ERIC, DARRELL, WES, DAVE AND NUMEROUS OTHERS LIVE HERE BECAUSE WE KNOW THE UNLIMITED RESOURCES WE HAVE. TONIGHT I WAS OUT WITH DOUG...WE LIMITED OUT 0N 16" WALLEYES IN LESS THEN 30 MINUTES. WHAT IS IRONIC IS THAT THE WELLS FARGO HERE HAS A NEW PRESIDENT THAT JUST MOVED HERE, HIS NAME IS DAVID HEBIG. I HAVE BEEN OUT FISHING WITH HIM TWICE, AND I TELL YOU WHAT, HE WILL DO WELL HERE. HE HAS A EXCELLENT PERSONALITY, SEEMS VERY ORGANIZED, IS MILD MANORED & IS TRYING TO MAKE ALOT OF CONTACTS AND TALKING TO SOME OF HIS STAFF...THEY LOVE HIM.. BEST OF ALL ABOUT DAVID...HE LOVES TO HUNT & FISH., HEY MAYBE HE IS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER GREAT EMPLOYEE., BUT ONE THING I CAN ASSURE YOU...YOU WOULD LOVE LIVING HERE!!! MY BROTHER CAME UP HERE FOR 25 YEARS, ONE DAY HE SAID TO ME WHY DO COME UP HERE FOR A WEEKS VACATION, SOMETIMES THE WEATHER IS BAD, WHEN WE COULD JUST LIVE HERE & VACATION SOMEWHERE ELSE. WELL HE MADE HIS DREAM COME TRUE, HE & HIS WIFE TOOK PAYCUTS, BUT I THINK HE WILL TELL YOU, IT WAS WORTH IT. HE GETS TO FISH WHENEVER HE WANTS & HAS HIS DREAM JOB.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy. "   Just because you are not glowing doesn't mean its necessarily healthy for a fetus it takes awhile for it to build up in a healthy adult that's just my           Methylmercury exposure in Wisconsin: A case study series” (2005)
      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
