Can't wait to come back

We had a great time fishing Rainy Lake last weekend. We caught fish every spot we went but the problem was that we would do ok in the mornings so we figured they would return for the afternoon bite but unfortunantly they didn't seem to return. We did manage to hook in to a fat 38" pike on the tipup. That was alot of fun. I'm glad we had snowmobiles, ATV's wouldn't have gotten us to the spots we went. We had 10" of ice and hit some slush but with mommentom(SP?) made it through it.

The weather was great. Light snow everyday and with temps in the 20's only had to fish out of our portables for 4 hours the whole weekend. We learned alot this weekend about the lake and the area and would come up there everyweekend it our funds would allow us to. We also found a great spot for friday night BBQ ribs, they were excellent.

All in all for two guys who have never been to rainy or never even jigged for walleyes we thought we did ok and look forword to returning next winter if not before.

Hwy.11 Heading west I thinks it was called Barney's Family Restaurant. It was good but it wasn't a WI fish fry that's for sure.

Thanks for the eating tip. I leave for Rainey on Thursday morning after I've bucked the snow (we're supposed to get) out of the driveway.

I wish i would have known Micheal Waddell was going to be at Woody's this week I for sure would have rescheduled around that to fish with the "We Live Outdoors" crew. Darn the bad luck.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
