I've been reading on here and have gotten a lot of great information. Thanks a lot guys! I'm going to be stopping at the Rainy 1 Stop later this morning and look forward to meeting Mark. I think we're going to start on Black Bay in search or eyes. I'll let all of you know how we do.

I am new to this forum and it looks fantastic. I would love to here how you do and where you found Eyes. I will be up on 6/9 for my 2ond year to Rainy staying at Island View. Especially wondering if you catch any in Black Bay.

Welcome to both of you to the site. I'll be at I.V. from 2-4:15 pm on the 11th (doing the creel survey) and should be able to give you a very current report as well as find out how you've done the first couple days.

33, maybe we'll meet up somewhere this week too.

Thanks. I'll look for you at the I.V. dock on monday. I'm sure I will need some direction. Let me ask you do you think it will be worth my time looking for walleyes in Black Bay, Dove Bay or Cranberry?

HEY GUYS,

WELCOME TO THE RAINY SITE. BLACK BAY IS LOADED WITH FISH...SECRET IS TO KNOW HOW TO FISH IT, IT IS ALSO VERY DANGEROUS...ASK RAINYDAZE. BLACK BAY HAS A WAY OF PRODUCING "NEW" ROCKS DURING LOW WATER, SO GUESS WHAT YOUR TAKING A CHANCE GOING IN THERE, NOT TRYING TO SCARE YOU, BUT WANT YOU KNOW BLACK BAY IS THE HOME TO HUNDREDS OF LOWER UNITS.

THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO FISH BLACK BAY, BUT ONE OF THE BEST IS A SPINNER WITH A SPLIT SHOT AND JUST TROLL AROUND THE WINDY SHORES & ROCK REEFS...THIS CAN PRODUCE MANY BIG WALLEYES & CRAPPIES. YOU CAN ALSO SPEED TROLL RAPS....BUT AGAIN BE CAREFUL, AND NEVER COME TO RAINY WITHOUT SOME GOOD INSURANCE., THAT INCLUDES OUT OF BLACK BAY TOO.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Hey Guys!

The Lund is up and running again. 2 day aired the lower unit, and was able to take it out for a spin to test it out. Just in time for the busy weekend. Good fishing this weekend guys! I've got two groups heading out, so I'll try post some results good or bad. Wouldn't mind seeing the weather stabilize a bit.

My family and I caught 12 walleye between 22" & 27". We caught a few eaters and some eater crappie as well. We didn't fish as much as I thought we may, the wind & rain discouraged my grandpa & parents, but we did alright for newbies to the lake. We didn't catch much in Black Bay, we fished off some islands in about 30 feet of water and were catching fish in 4'-15' of water right on a break. Pretty fun stuff catching the walleye. Thanks to Rainy Lake 1 Stop for the great minnows!! Lasted all week just fine!!

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
