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!!

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
