Smallmouth Fishing on Rainy Mid-May

3 posts in this topic

Will be visiting Rainy on the Canadian side the 3rd week of May. Primarily interested in Smallmouth fishing. Interested in knowing what patterns are like this time of year. I was up at Island View 2 years ago 1st week of June and did fairly well on all species, but did not fish Canadian side of rainy. Any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

You'd be better off posing this question in the Rainy Lake forum where there are a number of good guys that can help you out. Maybe try posting the same in that forum, or perhaps a moderator/admin will be able to move the post for you.

Good luck up there! I've fished the Canada side for a number of years in July and it can be phenomenal!

I'm going to say mid-May is a bit early for smallmouth. You'll get some around the walleye reefs and shorlines, but the spawning water temp doesn't come around until late May, early June. Always exceptions though...

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.

      Thanks slowpoke.  I just looked at them again and they're in really good shape actually, it's just that the back boards where the screws attach are weak and some of the screws don't stay in on a couple of them.   Does anyone know of somewhere in the metro (preferably south) that would repair them.  Would a Marine place like Dan's Southside or Valley Motor sports do something like that?

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!
