How is the smallie/pike fishing on the rainy? I never really had any interest in fishing the rainy river until this past march when we drove all along it from Baudette to International Falls. Looked like a cool river. I don't have the gear for sturgeon, or the interest in walleye, and I've never ever heard anything about smallmouth fishing on the rainy. Just curious more than anything.

The smallie fishing is excellent. The navigation is the hard part...

Why is navigation a problem? Current? Rocks? The stretch of the river where the Big and Little Fork Rivers enter is the area I found most appealing.

There's a few stretches that'll do more than ding up a prop if you're not careful. Mostly navigation is not a huge issue, but remember it's a river; you can expect sudden changes and you should watch the water flow for obstructions.

This is the Franz Jevne Area - Tricky navigation but can be rewarding if you make it through smile

We always get a few smallies on our bottom rigs during our July sturgeon fishing trip. We've got some nice ones too, up to about 4.5lbs.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
