Big Point, 3 mile, Lakeside, Fischers, Agate Bay, and then the mud. Alot is going to depend on how far you can drive , or if you have a sled of 4 wheeler.

bringing 4-wheeler, so if we do decide to venture to the west part of the lake and good islands or points to fish at and how thick is the ice, how deep to fish, what kind of jigs and colers to use. that kind of help would be very nice for a new person on that lake

The 4 wheeler will help. I would get out in the deep water, or reef edges. Use Northland Eye dropper jig- orange. Glow jigs probably 1/8 oz. down to 1/16. (chart/glow, orange/glow, black/glow) Jigging raps, sweedish pimples with minnow heads when jigging these types of lures.

You could always use a plain red or glow hook with a minnow under a bobber also if fishing inside a house.

Weather permitting I would put a tip up out with larger minnows- maybe suckers 5-9 " (for a shot at a Pig) or larger shiners (4-7").

You could otherwise get by with rainbows or smaller shiners 3-5"

Good luck and Post your results.

      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...

      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.
