I think the bite is slowing down from all the reports I have heard. This is also the time of year the the walleye bite practically comes to a stand still. The windows of opportunity really begin to shrink, like a 15 minute window, until things start wraming up again near breakup. I'm sure there are localized areas that the bite is still going on, but I was just making a generalization.

good luck!

Yeah the only people that are catching any are the ones that move a lot. We've picked up a few, but we usually catch them when we move to a new spot. My bro moved the house on Sunday and on Sunday evening he caught 3 and on monday morning he caught 4. But than again some spots we get skunked. The lake we fish get's to I think 28 feet or so and we've picked them and the crappies up in 18 fow. Definitely the slow time of year like Dead said though.

Honestly I think it does matter, we haven't caught anything on the tipups with decent shiners, or suckers. We've been catching them on smaller chubs or even crappie minnows on our rods in the fishhouse. With the run and gun thing, we don't really move too much we drill drill drill and find some decent NEW structure and we fish it. If it doesn't pan out we'll try a new spot the next evening. Definitely and evening bite so we stay put when prime time comes rolling in.

This is the time of year to head to LOTW if you have a free weekend. Don't bother with the maybe-one-fish-a-night junk.

      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.
    • h8go4s
      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.
