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

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.
