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.

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!!

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
