Tough day on the Rainy for me, started out by the gap where the wind was supposed to be out of the south, well it was NW and blowing good, loaded up and went to Clementson, yes the flow is strong, water muddy and full of debris, challanging caught a couple, but hopefully things will calm down and can get a quality trip in before ice time., but what a nice sunny day on the water!

one more thing to add, could not believe the number of boats fishing on the canadian side, now I know they may all have ontario licenses, rabc's no live bait or could be canadians but i doubt it, they take people down in the spring hard! so beware!

It's really a challenge getting a reliable wind report up here. If they get the direction right, the speed is way off.

In defense of the weather dudes though, have actually seen the wind do a complete 360 in a days fishing on the lake. The lake effect is very real.

There appears to be a weather "seam", somewhere between Vidas Landing & Frontier Landing on the river. Wind will be blowing up at Clementson and down at Frontier. Any body else see that?

Dutchmen just wanted to say hi fishing down here on the croix has been awesome. Had a group of friends with you here last week. they said the water levels were high but they caught fish and had a great time as always.

We also talked when I stoped in up there a couple weeks a go about the island. Well I was talking to muskie partner about it and your experiece with the muskies right off your dock and it peeked his intrest. So if you could e-mail me some info on the island, when you get a chance and you guy get everything worked out, we are looking for somthing between early Aug. and early sept. At least 4 nights if not a full week. My e-mail is walleyeguy2006@hotmail.com

Hope you and the dutches are to doing well and if some reason we cant make arangements for the island we are already geared up for or trip to the river next Oct. and very happy to be staying with you this up coming year.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
