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.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
