The walleye fishing has been good, try the birch point area in sand bay. Out east around dryweed has produced some nice eye's in 38'of water( north side ) The crappies fishing on the canada side has been good most of the year, they where a little slow last weekend.All in all the fishing has been good all over rainy,i would start in Sand bay then work my why east. You can also drive out of Tilson Creek and fish the american narrows.I would start in 34'of water then go deeper.A pink jig head tip with a minnow ,or a jigging rap, works well for me.A good lake map is a must, I use a hand held gps with a chip.Remember Rainy lake has a current so always practice caution .There is a lot of snow on the ice,sleds and a good portable will help alot.

Hope that helps

Looking for an update, since I will be heading out fishing on Rainy in the morning. I want to stay on the US side and just want to catch some fish. Don't really care what they are. Crappies, eyes, or northern are fine.

Also how's the ice?

Fishing was really slow for us last weekend, sounds like everyone was having bad fishing. We fished from American Narrows to East end of Dryweed. Best fishing we found was in 45' of water, but it was slow. Ice was in good condition.

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
