Red Gut Bay

2 posts in this topic

I have done quite a bit of research on this site and the information provided has been incredible. Thanks to all the regulars for their input and information. It seems Red Gut gets quite a bit of attention as a good spot to fish for smallies and pike. We will be up there on 5/20-5/25 and staying on private island in Canadian waters directly north of Jackfish bay. Red Gut (on my map of Rainy Lake North) has two spots labeled Red Gut. One is not far from Grassy portage and the other is NE of their up near Indian bay and Grassy Narrows. Which of these two is the best portion of Red Gut? It appears to be a pretty long haul from where we are staying and if we are going to make the run we want to know where to go. Any specific spots to keen in on. We are primarily seeking smallmouth and pike, but i am sure we will catch our share of eyes.

Do you feel we should spend the time making the run over to Redgut from our area (again we are staying near Last Island and Nowhere Island)? If there are other areas you recommend, could you point them out.

We stayed at Island View a couple of years ago and are familiar with some milk runs around there.

Thanks in advance and keep the information flowing.

Bill

Redgut Bay Is all in Canada. If you look at a overall map of Rainy and think of it as a chickens foot, with the North Arm as the left toe, Redgut Bay the center toe and the South Arm the right toe. Redgut Bays over fifteen miles long, and some of the best fishing in Rainy. Grassy Portage is near the south end of it and Indan Bay near the north end. I fish mostly the south part of the Bay(below Perry Straights). In May, the best walleye fishing (and the most boats) seems to be between the mouth of Porters inlet, and Red Pine Narrows. Later on in the year, i.e. June and July, they seem to move south.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.

      Thanks slowpoke.  I just looked at them again and they're in really good shape actually, it's just that the back boards where the screws attach are weak and some of the screws don't stay in on a couple of them.   Does anyone know of somewhere in the metro (preferably south) that would repair them.  Would a Marine place like Dan's Southside or Valley Motor sports do something like that?
