Hardee's/Rainy Lake One Stop

7 posts in this topic

We are arriving in the afternoon on 5/20 and want to know where Hardees and Rainy Lake One Stop are in reference to Island View. We'd like to fill our gut at Hardees and pick up a few items at One Stop if we can. Not to mention picking up a few last minute pointers.

Fishmeister - will you be at the Hardees on that Sunday?

Bill - what about you at the shop on that day?

HI WST.,

WELL THANKS FOR STOPPING AT HARDEES, HOWEVER NO I WON'T BE THERE...WALLEYE SEASON HAS BEGUN, SUNDAYS ARE MY DAY OFF, AND IT HAPPENS TO BE MY 49TH BIRTHDAY. I'M GOING TO TRY & BETTER MY WALLEYE RECORD...AS ON MY 43RD BIRTHDAY AT 7:30 A.M. I LANDED A WALLEYE-11.7....SO I APPRECAITE THE BUSINESS IN ADVANCE & HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT HARDEES EXPERIENCE & OUTSTANDING FISHING. RAINY LAKE ONE STOP SITS ABOUT 3 MILES ON HIGHWAY 11 EAST ON THE SOUTH(RIGHT) SIDE OF THE ROAD, CONTINUE ON 11 EAST ANOTHER 6 MILES & YOU WILL COME TO ISLAND VIEW.

SINCERELY. FISHMEISTER

No problem meister. Good luck with the opener. Just do me a favor and tell your staff to make my thickburger a little thicker and a little rarer and we'll be in business.

By the way - I have seen a couple of postings about H2O temps in the upper 50's in Black Bay/Rat Root area. We fished there a couple of years ago and did well. We are staying just across the canadian border on a private island (about 6 miles or so from Island View, between Pukamo Island and Nowhere Island). I am assuming H2O temps are drastically cooler in this area. What other bays near the area we are staying are dark like black bay and will have warmed?

Places like Haymarsh Bay, Commissioners Bay? My understanding is that the water on the northern side is a little clearer and may warm slower. True?

Thanks again for all the guidance over the last couple of months. I have been a regular on the site and visit it at least once a day. Call me a fishnut, but when your passionate about this sport, you will read anything to gain perspective on the water you are fishing.

I've done well in Grassy Portage and Duck Bay at that time of year.

I was out yesterday and the lowest reading I found was 49 near the Causeway. Rest of main North Arm was 51. Back bays were hitting 70 in extreme back ends but mostly low 60s.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
