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.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
