Independence Help Needed

5 posts in this topic

I'm coming up for a couple triathlons the first two weekends in June and will be staying at Baker Park Reserve for the whole week. Any info on the lake would be great. Will probably bring the muskie gear up, but family will be there as well so look to target the other species as well. What type of fishery does it have and where are some decent spots to look at for fishing?

Thanks.

Andy

their are almost any type of fish in the lake. I haven't fished muskies in the lake but I know there are a lot of big ones in there. It depends on how much the weeds have grown by then.I would start out by the islands and work in behind them for muskies and big norhterns. I did see about a 40 inch muskie back in a boat channel which would be on the west side of the lake also have seen big ones in on the west side when fishing for sunfish late ice. Check back in I plan on going out there next week. I have a cousin that runs the triathlons too.

Decent bass fishing. Have caught some nice walleye on spinner baits while bass fishing in 3 FOW.

Fun weekday lake. Weekends belong to the waverunners and pleasure boaters. 27" Pike and 24" eye in the same run 2 years ago. 40" ski the following day. Nice lake - keep it that way and practice C&R.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
