Memorial weekend

2 posts in this topic

Gentlemen

This is my 1st post to this forum. I've read a lot of good info here over the past year or so, and since I'll be back up there in a couple of weeks, I decided to chime in. I've houseboated on Rainy a few times over the years, so I know how huge the lake is. This year, we'll be heading to Anderson Bay in order to access the trails to Peary. I'm wondering if anyone fishes near there. We usually look for walleye and pike or maybe smallies. Any advice for fishing this area would be appreciated. I would assume movement is the key in finding the walleyes this time of year. Also, does anyone know how long it would take me to get back to the Rainy Lake houseboat launch in a 17ft Lund Pro Sport?

Thanks in advance

Memorial Day weekend you should find walleyes shallow and deep. Smallies should still be fairly shallow - 5-15'. Pike are all over the place but I'd be looking in 10-20' and adjacent to deeper water. Watch the reports as we get closer to the time.

From Anderson Bay to RLHB you're looking at approximately 25-30 miles so it depends on your boat speed and whatever wind you have to deal with.

      I bet you got a great deal on it this time of year.  I absolutely love my 8" ION as it has a nice enough size hole when using ice house, also, very light weight when drilling multiple holes.  Love the reverse!  Really makes the experience more fun and not so tired as i was using strike master before and i needed to sit down after drilling 4 holes.  When and if you get to use it.  let us know what you think.   Congrats!   Bob
