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!

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
