Yeah I was out there on Saturday. Set up in the "village", between the points. Should have probably found our own spot though, tons of people out there and lots of wheeler and sled traffic. Only got a few crappies.

Ice was 7-8". There is a pretty good trail started out from the access.

I was out there last week. About 8" of ice. Did see a car and small suv drive out, still not thick enough for me to risk it. I'll stick with the atv for now. Crappies were biting, but size was an issue... 7 to 9 inches are about the biggest we pulled up.

I was out there all day on Saturday. We were out in the Village. We got there at daybreak and fished until 5:00 p.m. We caught tons of teenie weenie perch and a few bluegills. I have to say I was a little disappointed! Not so much with the fishing but with what was all over the ice. Garbage! My son picked up a BIG bag of other people's crap! Beer cans, plastic bottles, paper, little crappies people left on the ice. It's no small wonder that our lakes are going to you know where. Personally I think its our responsibility to one, clean up after ourselves and two tell the slob next to you to clean up. My son is 12 and he had more responsibility than alot of the people I saw out there on Saturday. What a circus! Buffalo is pretty much the same thing. If you bring it with you to the lake take it home with you and put it where it belongs!!!! Also, if your not going to keep those 6" to 8" crappies please throw them back.

Was out last week I stayed away from the crowd and fished the first point from the landing. I fished from 1-5pm and kept 10 gills that where decent size. I also had a tip up out and not one flag. I was suprised by the size of the gills i caught considering in the past nothing but dink size fish.

      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.
