First timer to Rainy Lake

Recommended Posts

Michfish

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?

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..

      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.

      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.

      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.

      Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video!   Mom probably loved the day off too!
