Question on Lure Color for Rainy

5 posts in this topic

Good morning--I will be fishing Rainy Lake for the first time this summer and will be building crawler harnesses before I arrive. We will be fishing from June 9-16 and was wondering if there were colors that I should concentrate on for spinners and beads for that time frame??

Thanks in advance for any input you may have.

p.s. Love the forum!!

Gold with a red rattle bead is what we use up there when using spinners. I usually don't rig with spinners, mostly tied Lindy's with a red hook and a red rattle bead. Anything with a substantial amount of white has always been good to me on the river as well as the lake.

Good luck, you'll have a blasty!

try an orange flicker spinner (a very tiny spinner blade) with pink beads and a three hook harness with a nice fat crawler and if you find the fish they won't be able to resist that I gaurentee

For jigs glow white has been good, gold is always a color to bring and at times chart/orange is good. I experimented a bit with jigging spoons tipped with a head last fall and the fish just slam them. The JR's flasher spoon was best and the buckshots did ok as well.

My top three pics are:

1.) Gold

2.) Yellow/Orange

3.) Chartruese/Yellow/Orange

There are sometimes where I will pop a stinger on them, but you usually don't need it this early unless the water get really murky like when the bigfork/littlefork break.

'Lander, I never thought of trying the bigger buckshot spoons...that sounds like a pretty good idea...

Flutter+Noise=SLAM!!! Of course then you square that and get SLAM x SLAM which = double the fun!!

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!!

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
