Suggestions for a good Guide

8 posts in this topic

I will be coming to Rainy Lake the 9th of June for a week. We are newcomers so I am looking for a good guide to take me out for a day or two. Any suggestions? I really have enjoyed this forum and have picked up alot of good advice. Any help on the guide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bearhunter.

Really any of the guides are good choices. Abby Renolet guides out of thunderbird, there's Woody who is a sponsor on this site, One Doggie, John Gushalak, along with many more who's names escape me at this time. There are a few links for guides on the rainylakeonestop.com webpage. Also try doing a google search for Rainy Lake Fishing guides and you will come up with most of the guides.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

I'd also like to add Doc Holiday to the mix. Another great guide! I will be completing my Captains license this month, so will be available for guiding this summer.

Congrats in advance on getting your captains license RD! Do you or are you going to have a website with contact information? If not could you shoot me an e-mail at beanie1124@yahoo.com? I'm coming up the last week in May to the second of june and my buddy and I are debating on whether or not to get a guide for a day to get us pointed in the right direction.

Thanks!

Beanie

Thanks for the plug Rainydaze, I didn't want my first post on this site to be me blowing my own horn.....My guide service web site should be posted on this link next week. But...I think you would be a good choice for a guide trip. Another great choice would be one dog Lessard thru Woodys. By the way I am going back out on the river Saturday if you want to go?

River run on Saturday? I'll let you know tonight. It will be rather refreshing thats for sure! Looks like our ice fishing season will be extended a bit. I am hitting the hard water next week when the weather warms a bit. Should be good!

Thanks Beanie,

Debated doing it as I'd hate to ever consider a true passion of mine like fishing to seem like work! Ha! Rainy is a fairly complex fishery, and humbles plenty of accomplished fisherman due to the vast structure to fish. Probably not a bad idea to get a guide for the first day of your trip whether it be myself or someone else to put you the right pattern for your trip. You've got mail! Good Fishing!

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      yesturday we were about 1/2 mile below the sartell dam and 4 jet skiis headed north to the dam area. the kind that yo stand on. looked like they all had go pros on helmets and looked like they were on a mission to have some fun. would have been nice to see what they did up there.

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
