fishing boat rental

4 posts in this topic

OK, usually I plan my trips to Rainy a year in advance, and it is with 8 other guys. This time, I'm taking my son and his teacher, who just happens to be from Argentina. When we joke about digging a hole in the earth all the way to China, Argentinians say the same thing, accept they say Canada! He lives with us for the year, and wants to lay eyes on Canada very badly. Unfortunately, I don't trailer my boats. They are at, and stay at, the cabin. So I want to grab my camping gear, and go. To that end, and because this is impulsive, I want rent a fishing boat (don't need electronics)with a decent motor for a few days without breaking the bank.

So, any ideas? Like I said, this is last minute (in my world) and I'd love to do this for this kid, but I want to do it at a reasonable rate.

All help appreciated.

I don't know if he does but give woody a call at Woodys Fairly Reliable, great guy and could put you on some fish...of course he is on the MN side though.

Well, truthfully, all he is going to do is see Canada, we won't cross. I don't want to deal with the remote border pass, etc.

I've fished with a Woody guide before. I'd have rather fished with Woody himself.

I don't know what guide you fished with but if you want a good guide with woodys get rainydaze or doc!! They were great when I was there and they really knew what was going on honestly I think they might get out fishing more so then woody but dont know for sure. Just give woody a call I know they will help you out.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
