Fishing Report 9/27-10/1

3 posts in this topic

I just returned from Woody's. I had a great trip. My stay at Woody's was great as always and the info that I got from Fishmeister and from Doug at Rainy Lake One Stop was helpful.

We caught a bunch of walleyes. Our largest fish was 27.25" but we had a 26 several 25's and bunch of fish between 18 and 23. We came hoem with our limit of eaters and a fish dinner one night on top of that.

We experienced the best fishing on the west end of Sand Bay on a 10-12' rock flat pulling cranks although I heard several reports that fish were snapping on lindys in 30-50' of water near Dryweed Island.

If any one is thinking about hitting up Rainy now is the time. The big eyes are really starting to feed and they are FAT.

Thanks Tearin'lips.

I wish that I would be able to get out on Rainy for another couple days this fall. I love tying into those huge walleyes.

      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.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.
