Guide for Rainy

9 posts in this topic

Hey guys looking for a guide up on Rainy the second week of June I checked out the guide page here and only found one. I was wondering if there would be anyone else that you could suggest for us. We have been going up to Rainy for 6 or 7 years and every other year we hire a guide to find some new "hot spots" any info would be great!!!

Thanks

Thanks Uffda!

I've really been on a hot bite, and we're having a fantastic time on the most beautiful body of water in the state! Your job with me is to catch fish, and eat them! I'll take care of the rest! Hey Scott you've got mail! I run a Lund Fisherman Magnum with a V8 Mercruiser. Full canvas if needed! Ha! What on Rainy? FISH ON!

Daze is a great choice. Also check woody's and the thunderbird. They always have some guides available.

I forgot top mention...check out dock holiday guide service as well. Bill is a great guy and will put you on fish. His specialty is big fish...Northern and monster walleye.

You could check the Guide link directory. Doc Holliday would be a good choice.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?
