On saturday three of us caught 9 walleyes, 2 northerns, and about 25 white bass. The walleyes were all caught on #5 shad raps off of shorelines that had rocks on shore.

Temps were in the 58 range. Heard lots of reports of shore/dock anglers doing well. Also boats 6-8 FOW casting shallow. Not much on slip bobbers but the deadstick produced a 28.5" in 7-8 FOW

We did very good this weekend . All kinds of depths lindy rig with aleech or a crawler. Fish were on blown in side. We ended up with 4- 18's and 4- larger than 16. We eneded up with our limit of 8. We wish we were in the tourney becuase we looked at the board and we probably would of came in third. A great weekend on Big Stone.

The fish we caught were right up by shore. Never caught a walleye if we didn't cast within about two feet of shore.

Thanks for the reports. I am heading out to BS with a big crew on Thursday. It has been a tough bite during the day the past few years, hopefully that is changing a little. I post a report next week.

Got a report. We had 14 guys Thursday to Saturday. Got chased home a day early with the storms. We had a mixed report. The eyes were in shallow during low light hours. Bobbers with minnows or leeches worked the best. During the day, the 9 to 13 ft ranges with jigs, minnows, leeches and lindys were the best. Nothing seemed to be the hot bait, just location. There were also plenty of white bass and sheephead caught. A fun trip, fishing was a little slow, but should be great for the folks fishing this next week. The water temps were 59 to 60, and the water clear.

Any updates on reports for Big Stone? Still catching the walleyes? How about around the islands?

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
