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!

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
