Spring Fishing With Woody's Rainy Lake Resort!

3 posts in this topic

Hey Anglers!

Many customers in the past have shown interest in a chance to fish the Rainy River during the BIG RUN! The season opens March 1st through April 14th. Many anglers are aware that this is one of those times of year where you can truly land that trophy of a lifetime! What is neat about our area is that we can open water fish and ice fish the same time most years. Many of our customers throw their auger and tip-ups in the boat and do a Triple Header for Trophy Walleye, Monster Pike and a Sturgeon big enough to tow your boat. Keep in mind that while the walleye limits change on the Lower Rainy River they stay the same on the Upper Rainy River(above the dam)and Rainy Lake which is 4 walleye (one over 28') 4 sauger any size. Three pike (one over 28"). We are running a Knock your Socks off semi-guided/lodging special with Rainydaze for less than the price of the Government check you are about to recieve! Check it out on the Sponsor Showcase and our web-site. We just wrapped up a great show with In-Fish and another with Gander Mountain's "We Live Outdoors" both to be shown next fall. We thank many of the local guides for making both shows a great success. The best ice fishing is ahead of us. We look forward to seeing you yet this winter. May your line never go slack.

Right on Woody! The best fishing is yet to come and you cannot miss what Rainy Lake has to offer in the late season. As mentioned monster eyes, sturgeon, and pike on the Rainy River as well as monster pike and hungry walleyes on the lake. It's a win-win situation.

Lets face it the secrets out, everyone needs to come and experience Rainy Lake in the winter time for a memorable experience.

It is always a bit of a tough decision for me during that time of year. Some of our best ice fishing is going on during the same time. Often times I'll be on the river part of the day and in the bays laying the wood to MONSTER PIKE the other part. My all time favorite time of year is when the lake is still sheeted with ice and the bays are breaking free. YIKES! I'd suggest bringing the Big tackle!

Good Fishing!

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
