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.

Have a good time fishing Rainy Larry. Wish I was going back this weekend. Minus the cold temps compared to last weekend.

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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
