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!

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
