You know its a good RR trip when nothing 28" or under gets the camera out. Looks like dad had a blast.

Truly Trophy Walleyes from the Trophy Waters of Rainey River. This River is just Awesome. Year after year producing Walleyes like this. And other monster fish. The Lake of the Woods is one Large Walleye producing factory. Its amazing the monster fish that comes out of this Lake and goes into both Rivers. I've seen this for 30 years.

Congratts on all your Beautiful Trophies...

Darn nice Whitefish you got there man!

See them come thru the ice on the lake quite regular like that. Rather uncommon to get them in the river/open water. I've fished the Rainy since the 70's and have never pulled one that I remember. I get a few Mooneyes now and then though!

Here is a 67" x 30" the girfriend caught. It took everything I had to carefully lift it horizontally while it twisted just to get a shot of its sheer size as it went back into the water. I soiled my pants about two seconds after this picture was taken. laugh

Here is the same fish I set in her lap for a quick pic.

Minimite, I like that boat! I spend a lot of time in one of those Alumacrafts growing up and probably caught more fish out of them than any other boat I have owned.

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet!

        Nice fish , great pics ,, what times of the day were best for you ?

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

      awesome fish!!!!  see ya in March!!
    • JerkinLips
      Had great fishing out from McKinley in 28 FOW on Friday-Saturday.  Caught a great mix of dinks, eaters, and slot fish.  I ended up catching five 22-25" walleyes, but my guest on Saturday (Chris Larson) caught the largest at 25½".  Best action was using a chub on a plain hook, but small jigs and rattlers also had action.  Walleyes still didn't like the sucker minnows. I had 8½" of ice where I was (was 6½" the previous week).  But be very careful out there because there are bad spots as people have mentioned.

      Anybody walking out yet? Preferably would like to know Glenwood side..
    • eyes55117
      Just want to put this out early... hoping to keep up on the ice conditions along the north shore of superior from Duluth N. 2 1/2 hr drive is a bit far to check ice. Thanks for all the help from people in the area.
