So who went shoping for raingear today?

7 posts in this topic

I may have caught the biggest largemouth I'll get this year -- other than that, pretty much a wet, cold, slow outing. The season has begun.

Went to the Mississippi just below the St Cloud dam and caught a lot of catfish, a few smallmouth, and 2 little walleyes. It was good to get out though.

Fished the St. Louis river, caught 1 eating size walleye. Wind off the lake, temp in low 40's, and light rain. Most boats I saw caught nothing, a very small percentage did well. It felt great to get out, and by 4:00 pm my wet boat was put away. Yes, it was a good day to get rain gear.

It was a wonderful day no rain and low variable winds and FISH! My son (just moved back from the State Washington) and I decided to try Buffalo Bay, LOW, we hunted all over until we found some nice male walleye in 5 1/2' in the rocks, ended up with 6, 16" up to 21", caught them on a minnow and chartreuse fuzzy grub jig.

Fished out of Ely area. We had a party of 9. Kept 54 2-3 lb.walleye's and released at least that many. Some big northern's mixed in and a 4.5 lb. Samllmouth released. If that wasnt enough I released a 32 in. walleye during sat. night in the gail winds. Also my nephew relaeased a 30in. a half hout later.

      Stopped in this morning and it looks like it should be good to go.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
