Rice Lake Report???????

4 posts in this topic

Me and my bro are gonna hit Rice on Friday for some Walleye's. We've never fished the lake before so were curious to where a guy could find a few. Not lookin for gps coordinates but (deep weed lines , shallow flats, ect) Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Straight off of the point on the west side. It runs from 6 ft to 25 ft. I have never caught a walleye, or anything for that matter, on the inside turn that you will see a lot of houses on. I sit all by my lonesome on the point in about 14ft and manage to do well. Haven't been out there yet this year but will be out in the next couple of weeks. Set a tip-up in shallow and you'll get a few slimers...good luck.

Fish the breakline and move up on the shallow flat during primetime. If you pick the right spot you should have action. Always seems to be a good shallow bite on Rice.

I've had luck off the south access in past year's early ice, though I got skunked a couple weekends ago. Didn't quite get as deep as I would have liked, the 5-7 inches of good ice that is a couple hundred yards out got pretty scary looking (under 5-6 inches total with most of it being cloudy) once I got above 20 feet of water.

      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...

      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.
