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.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
