6 posts in this topic

We will be coming up on the 30th thru the 2nd and I was wondering where I have to go to get a canadian fishing license. Also was wondering if you have to have a canadian boat license. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Bins we order our liscense ahead of time, but you can go through Baudette and cross the border into canada. When you cross the town of Rainy lake is right across border it has a small bait shop gas station that sells fishing liscense.Dont bring live bait across not legal they will make you dump it out. When you cross back into minnesota stop at the border crossing and buy remote border pass they open at 8:00 am you must have that to cross back and forth on river. You dont need to buy boat stickers for Canada. I also will be up that same weekend with many friend's. annual trip that can't be missed best fishing of the year.

Thanks for the info. Last year was the first year that we have fished the rainy. We had a great time and decided that we had to come back this year. We kind of pushed our luck last year by fishing the whole river without the canadian lisence so I figured this year we better get one. Where do you go to order them in advance including this remote border pass?

Thanks alot I will check out their site. I tried to get a room there for the 30th - 2nd but they were already booked. I ended up getting a cabin for the three of us a schusters resort. The walleye inn was also out of double rooms. Hopefully we can get the boat in at birchdale by then since that is where we went last year and did pretty well. Will be in grey alumnacraft with merc motor with my dad and sisters boyfriend. Stop by and say hello if you see us out there. Good luck to all.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff
