Best Week Ever on Rainy

5 posts in this topic

My wife and I had our best Rainy trip ever last week. The grade of smallies was unreal, actually. I'd love to share some photos. I have some pics resized and ready to post but the process seems overwhelming to a simple (lazy) fisherman/duck hunter like me.

Take care,

Northwest, Northeast, Alexandria and Ash Bays

It didn't seem to matter, though. We hammered 'em everywhere the wind was blowin'.

I think I may have figured out how to post pics. Just a few Rainy Lake smallies. Enjoy.

My wife wanted me to inform ya'll that she caught the one on the left(the big one).

I'll re-post later with un-compressed pics. These were compressed and obviously aren't big enough to see well.

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
