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!

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
