I am making my first trip to fish Rainy on the 13th. We are fishing out of Rainylake houseboats and can't wait to get there! I have been planning a trip for over a year and decided on Rainy because of this forum. Never have I seen and read such honesty and willingness to help put fellow sportsman. Thanks for making my decision very easy..

Hi Jackpot,

I bet your a bit excited huh! Well the bite has been really hot! I had a individual from Missouri yesterday between 2-6p.m and we caught 15 walleyes. Make sure you have good electronics, and search until you find fish. These fish were a bit shallower than I've been fishing. We caught them in a bit of a saddle in 25 feet of water on lindy rigs. Rainbows and chubs seemed to turn the fish. The stability in the weather really has a big impact on the mood of the fish. Even thought the fish are biting well I would recommend to fish slow slow if your fishing the deep bite. Good Fishing Buddy!

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
