Any reports East of the Narrows

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anybody has been fishing the east end of the lake? We are coming up next week and usually camp down in that area. Not set on any area, just looking for reports. Thanks

HI N.P.S.,

I DON'T FISH THE EAST END THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, AS THE WEST END IS AWESOME RIGHT NOW. I TALKED TO A GUY ABOUT 15 MINUTES AGO, AND THEY HAMMERED THEM IN 17 FOOT OF WATER IN MILD CURRENT LOADED WITH BAIT FISH. ALOT OF FISH... 14" TO 20". I DON'T LIKE USING THE XTRA GAS WHEN THE FISHING IS GOOD ON THIS END.

SINCERELY,

FISHMIESTER

Where do you find current other than the narrows. Not looking for specific spots, just general ideas of what to look for. Is current important in fall fishing on Rainy. We always searched for reefs that were holding fish and worked them. Any tips on fishing Rainy after a front has moved through this time of year. Last couple fall trips we have experienced the worst of what this lake can offer. And fishing was about as good as the weather. But I still love to come this time of year. My wife thinks I'm crazy to keep going back this time of year.

Thanks, Doug

HI DOUG,

MY POINT EXACTLY, YOU SAID YOUR FISHING EAST OF THE BRULE, I SAY THE BEST FISHING EAST OF THE BRULE IS JULY & AUGUST. MAY, JUNE, SEPT, OCT & NOV. I CHOOSE THIS END. THERE ISN'T ALOT OF CURRENT ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE WE LACK MOISTURE. PLACES WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF CURRENT, WATER NARROWS, RANIER, LIFT BRIDGES, AMERICAN NARROWS, AND THERE ARE MANY MANY MORE, LOOK FOR PLACES WELL YOU HAVE HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF SMELT & BAIT FISH & ACCESS TO DEEP WATER & YOU WILL FIND FISH, THEY WILL BE THERE PIGGING OUT & GETTING FAT AS FOOTBALLS.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
