We were up for 4 days and did pretty well. Lindy's and leeches did pretty well, but jigs and shiners outproduced everything else. Fished in 30-40 feet most of the time, but the boat operator (who was me) was gapping out for a while and we ended up on top of Duckfoot in about 17-20 FOW and hammered 10 walleyes in about an hour near dusk. Duckfoot was the most productive (graphed fish almost constantly), the Blueberries were all pretty slow, Shelland was decent, and Greywater was alright. I would try Duckfoot first and make your way east.

Sounds like you had a better weekend than us. We were fishing west of the Brule. All of our fish came from 30 to 45 feet. Thursday and Friday were slow. Saturday my dad and I managed 7 keepers plus quite a few smaller fish. My dad picked up an 18.5 inch smallmouth Saturday also. Most of our fish came on crawlers although I did pretty well on a jig and minnow too. I'm heading back up this weekend with my G/F so hopefully thing pick up. Maybe I'll have to head further east.

Nice meeting you also Bill. Thanks for all the info and the tips on lures. I hammered them with the lindy with sharpruese the first day and had to hand a few out laugh.gif. We had a blast and we will be up again. The Rainy lake trip(s) are always my favorite.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
