Anyone know where Miller Bay on Rainy is located. Assume it's within Canadian territory. Thanks in advance.

Got my map out. It is off hwy 11 just north of Prospect Bay:) Or north of the causeway bridges leaving ft francis 7-10 miles. Guessing by the way it looks on the map.

The smelt travel the main lake most of the summer. Learn to locate them and you'll find the bass. (Walleye and big pike too). The easiest way is to go to the main lake points and rockpiles close by. Baitfish bump up against this stuff, game fish are there to intercept them. The bass may not be right on the structure but close by. I have my methods of fishing the smelt patterns, others have theirs, it's up to you to find out how. (its part of the fun).

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.
