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.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
