Resort or motel suggestions

7 posts in this topic

I'm planning on heading to Rainy to try my luck. Can someone give me some suggestions on a decent place to stay. It will be just myself as I like to use my own schedule. Go when I want to, quit when I want to! I do not need anything fancy just something warm and clean. As I'm new to I Falls can you tell me where I can find a good bait shop. I know Fishmeister has been mentioned but I do not remember where he works.

The motels in town are reasonably priced, sounds like you are not interested in staying at a resort as it will be a little fancier and a little more expensive. Falls Motel, Days Inn, and the Super 8 would all be good choices for a clean spot to stay for minimal money.

As for your bait and tackle needs, don't look any further than Rainy Lake One Stop. You can't miss it it's on your way out to the lake. There is however the outdoorsmans headquarters and sportsmans service in town.

Kelly (Falls Motel owner) and I hit a few spots yesterday. Here he is with a beauty he got March 11.

I stayed at the Falls Motel for many years before buying my own place up here. It is clean and has good parking for boat trailers. Fishing spoken there. Ask him whose hole he got that pike from. We released everything as usual.

I am planning on coming up sometime next week, 3-19-23 depending on the weather. I hope the ice roads hold up. I have watched the forum all winter and it sounds like the fishing has been pretty good so I hope it holds up.

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
