Any info would be nice

6 posts in this topic

It will be my first trip to the rainy so Im looking for any suggestions. Anyone know where I can get a good map. I plan on putting in a Birchdale if its good to go. What does a guy look for? Deep water or shallow? Rocks? I dont mind doing the searching for fish at all but with only getting to fish for two days it would be nice to be able to narrow it down a bit. Any help would be great!

We will be heading up early Monday morning if all goes as planned.

Thanks, LovenLifeGuy

I like to look for any pockets or feeder creeks. If I find a pocket or structure, fish the upstream side. It always has worked for me. Good luck!

I always look for open water and a structure change in the current (like the upstream side of a pocket or hole) on the AMERICAN side of the river and drop a hook. If that fails I just get out my shad raps and troll until I find them then work the jigs.

A bad day fishing beats a good day at work anytime, RIP SOME LIPS !!

Do you troll up or down river with your shadraps? or doesn't it matter?

Thanks

You can troll any way you want, however upstream trolling is best, because the raps will run truer. When you start trolling downstream the current works against the action of your lure. In my 19 years of fishing the river, 99% of our fish have been caught trolling upstream.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!!

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
