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!

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
