Actually saw a little skim ice back in a bay while hunting this morning. But some 40's in the forecast so it won't be any time soon.

How are the water temps now just out of curiosity? Headed up to the cabin on Saturday to bring my Otter and Jiffy back to Duluth.

Actually saw some skim ice in the main lake area this morning in calm water. Almost enough to take the mind off deer hunting. But why rush it, right??!!??<<>>!!?? What a problem to have, hunt deer?? fish?? Hunt ducks?? fish??

38.6 this am in Frazer Bay.... Burr.... If you are going to be out there, keep it safe. Now is not the time to be swimming out there.

Just need a cold calm night to lock her up. Too bad that particular senerio is not in the forecast for while.

Cliff is s going to have to Pontoons on the Hilton

It should go without saying, but the annual message is to remember to wear a life jacket ANY time you are on the open water when it's this cold.

Fishing was pretty poor. Water temps are way high for this time of the year.

Thanksgiving weekend they will prolly be bout right.

Always next year though. Gonna be on for the full moon next november.

Camping was awesome though and fishing in the snow was great too.

      Stopped in this morning and it looks like it should be good to go.

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
