Fishing Report August 3-6

4 posts in this topic

Rainy again treated us well. I was up with my wife and two friends from Kansas City. The two from KC had never experienced Rainy Lake before and they got to see the lake at its finest. Walleye fishing is still excellent. We found fish on the reefs in 20-25 fow. Only used crawlers since the bait stores in Fort Francis did not have any leeches!! Was kind of disappointed to say the least. Crawlers and harnesses produced tho. Found lots of dead smelt on the surface and the huge bait balls were found in the deeper main lake basins. Northern fishing was fantastic over the deep water. Most fish were in the 30-36" range. Lots of fun for people who don't get to fish all that often. The Gal from KC had never caught a walleye before and her first fish was a 27"er. She did end up with one a 28". I just can't get over the fisher Rainy has become. I've been going up there for 20 years now and just continues to improve.. SB

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      Sounds like a fair deal Boney, booze for bait works for me. i am starting to prep the boat and gear, too. cant wait.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
