Well Hemi, I figured someone would have replied by now. I have only ' heard ' that the fish cleaning house buckets overfloweth but then again, that is just a rumor I heard.

If things go right here today ( have to give the boat the water test here at the local lake ), I'll be up there too as well tomorrow.

Guess we will have to find out for ourselves wink.gif

Good luck.

Mike

Fishing hasn't been bad - just a bit on the slow side. Things should pick up in the next few days. Some fish being caught on the sandbar already - not much going at Birch. Beach area was good this morning. Poplar Pt hasn't produced much in the past few days and The Finger has been a bit slow as well. Lots of boats on the North End of the bar but not many dip nets being used.

Hope that helps.

Appreciate the report........ Seems early to be at the end of the bar already that is for sure, we'll, guess if it is slow elsewhere, I'll have to go and check it out.

Thanks

Thanks for the report!

We will be asking around a bit also up there and then determine where exactly to fish. If the fishing is slow we may head to some other lakes/area. We are in smaller boats so getting out 5 miles to the bars is tuff for us.

Well, that makes me feel a little better, all day yesterday all I could think of was being out there somewhere, what a beautiful day! I really hate work on days like that.....

We fished Buffalo on Sunday, made 5 stops at various areas before we finally got on some decent fish, threw back lots of 10" - 12" fish, once we got on them, we were done in less than 2 hours with 18 waldos.

Crawlers worked best for us, either hammered copper or gold. If the wind would have went down enough to anchor up and jig, it would have been great.

Just an update, Dad and I fished Buffalo this last Friday and Saturday and had one of the better trips we have had on open water. It was a little windy on Friday so we abandoned the spinners for shad raps and wally divers. Green seemed to do the trick for walleye, pike were hitting everything. Caught and released several pike in the 28 - 34 inch range, measured a 35" and we were going to measure one much bigger but he ' slipped ' away, right off the back of the boat, I'm thinkin' he was a good 38" maybe approaching 40, sure was fun to catch pike along with the walleye.

Walleye were bitting off and on throughout the day on friday and really woke up for us about 4 in the afternoon ( we didn't get out until 1 pm. ) Once we found the pocket it was over in about an hour, caught a bunch of nice ones and even released a 28", that one came along as a double header with about a 30" pike, Dad said ' get the net ' but there the pike was all tangled up in there and no time to get him out so I landed the 28" walleye by hand. cool.gif

Saturday was quite a bit slower, we still pulled crankbaits, put back 5 wallleye and 2 of the bigger pike we caught on the trip, nice day to be on the lake on Saturday but we had to leave early because of previous plans, plus we had a little boat trouble that cut into the fishing time too.

      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.
    • h8go4s
      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.
