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!!

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
