I have never trusted the narrows. When I ice fish this lake, I will go to the north landing to drive out onto that east side of the lake and if I fish the west side, I go out of the Westwood landing. That has always seemed to be the safest way to travel on the two sides of this lake. I have seen open water by the narrows in the middle of the winter.

Be safe and use the other landings.

I was out there a few weeks ago and there was plenty of ice. 20" at least where I was drilling and I was fishing the narrows. Nothing there so we moved onward. You will see a trail of where the trucks cross the narrows. It will be on the left side, but then again I have seen people drive right over the narrows and also on the right side.

I would for no money drive my vechile through the narrows at any time of the winter ice season. Way to many times have I seen ice solid one day and a few later the geese were swimming in that same spot.

Yes, it is a dangerous spot.

I'm heading out there for the first time today myself (for winter fishing), great info guys! Any heads up on where they're biting? I usually head to Duck for the consistant bite but with no electronics and a hand auger it makes it pretty hard to drill, check and move. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

The "mouth" into Baker's Bay just E of Squirrel's Nest Point is a good area to look as is the area out in front of Grassy Island.

Good luck.

doughnut with no electronics you might be ok to go back to the county park they are getting sunnies and it is shallow, should be easier without flasher in that shallow water

      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.
