The best fishing is ahead of us!

We've got plenty of ice, the days are getting longer and the best fishing is ahead of us. For walleye, pike and crappie! Walleye you can fish until April 14th, pike never closes. Often in late March and early April we have anglers fishing thru the Rainy Lake ice and simultaneously fishing on open Rainy River waters. Many people throw their tip-ups in their boat and do both. Looks like we will be able to ice fish right to April 14th. What fun when the sun is high and you are running around in sweat-shirts and t-shirts with 2 and 1/2 feet of ice under you. This is truly prime time!! Dont miss out!

I couldnt agree more Woody. While most of the state is waiting for the lakes to open up. We still have a fantastic bite ahead of us both on the ice and river, before the traditional opener.

The best of both worlds,some of the best crappie fishing of the year is right in front of us.

The weather is going to warm up starting this Sat. I will be out chasing walleye's this weekend and crappies next week.

I will post a report next week.

Amen to that! The waters of Rainy Lake and Rainy River are teaming with thousands of fish of different shapes, sizes, and character. Nothing beats being able to fish open water on the Rainy River in the morning, then going to chase walleyes on the breaklines, northern in the shallows on tip-ups, or crappies suspended off the points in the afternoons. Check out the accomodations at Woody's and Falls Motel. These guys will get you set up with the best accomodations at reasonable prices. Plus they know what's going down out on the water was well!

HI F.M.ERS,

YEP, I'LL 4TH THAT. SOME OF THE BEST FISHING CAN BE LESS THEN A MILE OUT WOODYS FRONT DOOR. WHEN THE SNOW BEGINS TO MELT, AND ALLOWS MORE SUNLIGHT THRU THE ICE, RUN OFF STARTS HAPPENING, BOISE OPENS MORE GATES, WHICH PRODUCES MORE OXYGEN IN THE WATER...THEN LOOK OUT. YOU CAN CATCH WALLEYES, NORTHERNS, BIG WHITEFISH(WHICH ARE OUTSTANDING TO EAT) CRAPPIES, PERCH, TULLIBEES, ALL MAKE FOR SOME FANTASTIC ACTION.

ANOTHER TIP THAT WILL HELP YOU WHEN USING YOUR ELECTRONICS IN HEAVY CURRENT...DRILL 2 HOLES...1 EAST...1 WEST(AS THAT IS THE WAY THE CURRENT FLOWS) PUT YOUR TRANSDUCER IN THE WEST HOLE & FISH IN THE EAST HOLE...WHICH WILL ALLOW YOU TO SEE YOUR JIG IN THE CURRENT.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
