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?

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
