I personally haven't been out retired the boat for the year and opted to hunt hard! Between waterfowl,pheasant hunting, bow and gun hunting deer the seasons go way to fast!

I do know that I have some hardcore friends that have been doing well on Koronis and the chain for eyes. I would think you should be able to mustar up a bite on one of these lakes.

I was out today and the fish are still biting. The water was still 42-43 degrees so there is still some time for fishing.

Good to hear! Sounds like my dad is out tonight or tomorrow night and those water temps should work out fine. I'm holding out hope that I can get the boat out for November full moon. The latest I trolled cranks was December fullmoon on Mille Lacs several years ago.

My son and I tried our luck on the Cold Spring Chain of Lakes last Sunday, during the afternoon time frame. Beautiful weather! Can't say we layed into them though. I tried trolling, lindy rigging and jigging with minnows. Not a walleye. Caught a beautiful cat though. Maybe it's a nighttime bite. If not, any suggestions?

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      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.

      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.
