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.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
