5 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to Cascade Camps with the guys on Thursday. Looking for any ideas or information/suggestions about where the walleye are biting. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Logman

Hey Logman, Was just up in the area last weekend. Fish are goin good on crawlers, look at the post for august 3-6 for more details. We mainly fished the 20-25 fow, anything adjacent to deep water. Trolling deep in the 60 foot range over the top of the smelt pods really worked for the northerns and a couple of eye's using deep diving cranks to get into the 30 fow range. Hope this helps, SB

P.S. Say hi to Bob and Joe for me!

Thanks for the help. I've only been to Rainy a couple of times and have truly enjoyed it. It does seem overwhelming to a guy who is used to small lakes in Wisconsin. I have problems just finding a place to start with all that beautiful water and with small boats and limited electronics it is a little intimidating! Thanks again.

I think Super Black had a point especially if you don't know where to start. Tie a #9 Rapala with a split shot 18" up the line start near any island and drive- when you pick a fish up through a marker out and focus on it until your satisfied or move on. The fish in Rainy can be caught suspended in 15 ft to 90 ft (or more). This technique alows you to cover massive areas in a short time to find active fish, once you find something you can fine tune your techniques.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
