First timer to Rainy Lake

7 posts in this topic

Hello

I will be arriving to Rainy lake on May 26. We have reserved a houseboat from Northernaire. I was hoping you guys could point me in the direction of getting a good map (online) and where I could get a fishing report for the area. Also if you wanted to throw in any other tips I would apperciate it.

Thanks in advance

IM NOT THE EXPERT ON THAT AREA, BUT I THINK NORTHERNAIRE WILL PROBABLY HAVE GREAT MAPS FOR YOU, THE ONLINE 1 FROM VOYAGERS NATL PARK SITE YOU COULD PRINT BUT THERES NOT ENOUGH DETAIL ON THAT MAP TO USE.

Michfish,

Northernaire does have good charts provided and they also have maps with fishing spots on them. Dick is knowledgable about the water and fishing so he is a great help as well. However if you want to purchase a map for your own purpose we sell a variety of great maps at Rainy Lake One Stop. Whether you need a laminated one for long term use or just a cheap one to get you through the trip.

As for the fishing report keep an eye on this site for up to date information. I also keep a up-to-date fishing report on my website. Click on the link below and check out reports/news.

If you have any further questions we will be happy to help you!

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing.

I bought the Navionics Gold - Great Lakes West chip for my trip in a couple weeks. Hopefully that one has good coverage for Northwest Bay.

Don't know about the gold chip when I looked at it a couple of years ago, it didn't seem to be that detailed for rainy, but the one I use is the premium north which has great detail for southern canada plus MN, WI, Dakotas, Iowa and I believer MI. it shows rocks awash and similar detail that is on the canadian maps.

you might want to compare them.

Would you settle for a Visa # and an expiration date?

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...

      Was just out on ice and a big difference from yesterday.  Most water has found a hole or two or ten to drain back down.  Minimal water on the lake once get away from the accesses at least on the north end of the lake.  Houses should be fine unless in a low spot with no holes anywhere near.

      Did not like how they ended the reg and OT, they got a shot to go in Reg but in neither situation did it look like we had a plan other than "somebody make a play"... But overall I really like this group.
