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!

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
