Rainy Lake This weekend!

6 posts in this topic

For all those looking to head up Ice fishing I have a group that will be out during the next 3 days. I'll try take some pics and post our fishing reports as well as ice conditions. As many of you know or have read our ice has been a bit slow in forming due to some heavy early snow. For many like us this isn't a bad thing as Rainy has often been touted as the greatest portable destinations in the state. My early suggestions would be to bring sleds, and don't forget your digital camera's. Small crowds Big fish!

Good Fishing!

Yikes! Yikes!! Good to hear the driver is okay. Vehicle as in car/truck or snowmobile/atv? RainyDaze, Mike, and Woody just called a little bit ago with a good report, I'll let RD fill everyone in when he gets off the ice. blush.gif

HI F.Q.,

EITHER A JEEP WITH A PLOW OR A TRUCK WITH A PLOW. IT HAPPENED TO THOR THOMPSON WHO HAS DONE THE PLOWING OUT OF RAINY LAKE MARINE THE PAST 5 YEARS.

THERE IS ALOT OF GOOD ICE ON RAINY, BUT THERE IS SOME VERY POOR ICE TOO.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Glad to hear he is o.k.!!! I don't know where he went in, but do understand the typical road placement. I'll stand by my previous statement in that I believe we should still be on atv's and sleds. We had good sled conditions today, and really never encountered much slush. Where we fished we never ran into less than 10 inches of good solid ice. With that being said I'd still error on the side of caution. We didn't light the world on fire, but did catch some fish this afternoon. Our biggest fish went a FAT 27 inch eye! We'll be venturing out again in the morning! Good Fishing!

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
