Deep, Big, or Rice Portage

4 posts in this topic

I'm coming up with the wife for the long weekend and would like to catch some fish. We will likely be limited to the portage chain. Any advice or what to bring and what depths to target would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Troll shallow diving raps on Rice and you will catch pike all day. Also at the mouth of the channel of deep portage you can find some nice crappies in 12-15 ft. Walleyes on deep are few and far between, but can be VERY nice size wise. Deep diving crank baits after dark is how Ive found them. Family has a cabin on Rice, been fishing there for 5+ years. Hope this helps.

Here's a shot of the walleye I caught this weekend at Big Portage Lake. Only walleye of the weekend, but the northerns were plentiful.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
