Getting on the lake?

6 posts in this topic

I am trying to make one more trip up this year! What will the shore look like as far as driving on after all of this warm weather? This weekend I dont think that there will be any problems but I would like to fish in the warmer weather that we are suposed to have next weekend! I just dont want to drive 4 hours only to not be able to get on the lake. Any input would help greatly!!!

5 degrees tonight and 10 degrees tomorrow night. This weekend is no problem getting out. The forecast for next Wed. is 44 with showers, Thursday is 54 with some showers. I'm hoping to keep the houses out until the end of the month but I'm starting to squirm a little. crazy.gif Beyond 2 feet of water we'll be fine. But how to get to 2 feet of water. confused.gif

Looks like Roger's website thinks he'll be shut down for trucks after this weekend (18th) and questionable for ATV's past the crack for even next weekend (24th). Any updates on the other access points would be appreciated.

Just talked to Todd at Morts Dock (also on the southshore, down from Rogers) and he said the conditions are good at Morts. The access and the roads are good and they are still open to all vehicle access and will continue to be as long as people are able to get out safely. He does have a bridge out on the pressure ridge which is in good shape now. We don't know what the wheather is going to do, and it's too far away to predict next weekend, but they are hoping to still have the access and roads in good shape to allow vehicles out next weekend...again, weather permitting. As for fishing, this weekend they had some anglers out hole hopping under 2 miles out and they were doing fairly good with the crappies.

Also talked to Westwind and they said their access and roads are in good shape and not going to close the access down to vehicle traffic now, and most anglers are fishing this side of the break. Our anglers out of Hillmans last night said travel was good. Again, as for next weekend...if you are heading up on Friday call the access owners on Thursday to see what the latest conditions are.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
