RAINY HERE WE COME

4 posts in this topic

Next Saturday (Jun 2) my lines will be wet on Rainy for the first time. I can't wait. I hope the smallies will be transitioned better in shallow water by then. Also how has the crappie bite been and how deep here lately? Fishmiester better fire that grill up, got a big boy coming to town.

The smallies should be up in shallow by then. They are already in transition up into their spawning grounds and in some bays such as Black Bay, they are already in the shallows. Thought the temperature is not quite what they need to spawn yet.

As far as the crappies they were in, but with the weather and wind stirring things up and cooling the water in the bays I am not sure the effect it will have on them. Look for a report from me within the next fews days.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!!

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
