Hey Boys!

Congrats on the BIG FISH this weekend! You guys can really fish and really drink! I'm exhausted! Ha!

Look forward to you guys coming back!

You guys are official members of the Rainydaze 20/20 club as we landed over 20 walleyes over 20 inches over the weekend. Biggest fish being a 26" and 27". Great fishing guys! Guess you'll have to come back for the 30 incher! Glad to keep my $10.00 though! Actually I think I had him a couple times, and would have felt a bit guilty taking your hard earned cash from people with real jobs!

We fished hard! and found many big eyes up the water column. Drilled lots of holes and managed to follow some of these pigs during their daytime movements. I can't stress enough the importance of working fish with electronics. I'll post some pics later, and repost the previous weekends pics as they vanished as our forum experienced some technical difficulties.

I still say bring sleds! The thing about sleds is that even if there are some ice roads you aren't limited to them. Great fishing guys!

rainydaze,

Thanks again for taking us out. Had a great time fishing with you.

The 27" walleye was the biggest eye for me through the ice. Thank you for the hospitality. Anybody out there looking for a guide you should definetly look up Rainydaze. Can't wait for the pics and thanks again. Oh ya did you book that hunt for Dustin and I with Michael Waddell.

Hey Woody,

Not to confuse you with the Woody up here! Ha! Yes we had the big group out filming the Gander Mountain "We Live Outdoors" show, but nope sorry buddy had to look out for #1 there. I'll be placing a post on the whole event in it's own thread! What a fantastic time! Glad to hear you had a great time, and stick close to this forum as we have some really good sticks posting here! Hope to see you guys again this fall?

Oh Yeah!

Forgot to mention.... Pick up a copy of the Jan. 18th edition of the OUTDOORS WEEKLY! Rumor has it there is a really handsome devil on the cover holding a GINORMOUS Rainy Lake Pike! Flip to the back page and take a look at the little guy holding that nice eye too! He's a pretty good stick.

Good Fishing Boys!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      lol I posted that Friday but with no service it must went when I ran into town for new hose

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.
