3 posts in this topic

I am wondering if anyone could give me some ideas for fishing around the 4th.We will be taking a HB from RLHB.We would like some tips for northerns, walleyes & smallmouth around this time. We will be on the US side only. Thanks for any help.

HI WELLMAN,

EVER BEEN TO RAINY??? MOST FOLKS TAKE THE HOUSEBOATS TO THE EAST END, FOR BOTH BREATHTAKING BEAUTY & GREAT FISHING. BIG NORTHERNS WILL BE OUT OF THE SHALLOWS, UNLESS YOU CAN FIND CABBAGE., LOOK FOR THEM OUT WITH THE WALLEYES., AND AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE 4TH OF JULY, WE WILL HAVE A BETTER IDEA WHAT KIND OF DEPTH THE WALLEYES WILL BE. RAINY IS A VERY DIFFERENT LAKE, A PLACE WHERE YOU HAMMER 1 YEAR, YOU MAY NOT FIND A FISH THE NEXT YEAR...ONE THING FORSURE, THE WALLYES WILL BE ACTIVE SOMEWHERE., YOU SHOULD DO WELL, YOU'LL BE FISHING ONE OF THE 20 BEST WALLEYE LAKES IN THE WORLD. OH BY THE WAY JULY 4TH IS ABOUT 5 MONTHS AWAY.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Thanks for the quick reply Fishmeister. I see your name in almost all posts. We were up there 2 years ago in July. Lots of structure to look at. We only caught eyes that time that were in the slot?? so they were 2 big to keep. Caught aa couple small northerns also. Thanks again.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
