Anyone ever fished here? We're going in January and would like to fish. Any info on charter services they have used? Thanks again.

I was there 2 winters ago. I think I went just after the New Year. The marlin fishing isn't the best at that time of year, but we did manage 4 Dorado (Mahi Mahi or Dolphin fish). The mate cleaned the fish right away for us and we took the fish back home with us. Some of it was eaten that night and the rest was packed into coolers and was brought back to the states with us. We also spent our evenings casting from shore. BTW, you don't need a fishing license when fishing from shore. Got bit off a few times by a Sierra or something else. We took a charter for 1 day and went through Minerva's. If you're looking to get a charter make sure they're willing to work for the fish (like getting out away from shore) and also let them know you'd like to catch anything. For instance, we hooked up the first Dorado trolling and then the following 3 were caught on live bait. It was an awesome experience. We asked the captain and the mate how they knew where to go to and they said that they watch for birds feeding on bait fish on the surface...guess the Dorado were feeding on them too. Here's a few pics of what we caught...

Thanks for the reply. We are going the first week in January so it would be fun to go for most anything. Just want to make sure that we don't get hooked up with any shady charters.

      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...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      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.
