Try Ollie's Resort up by the Libby Dam.

There's a place across from the Pier 65 that might have 1 too,sorry I forget the name.

Call the Pier & see if they know the name of the place.

Wayne Floe has the Floetilla,he might do something for you.

Call the Pier as he owns it.

Ole's quit renting pontoon's about 6 year's ago.........they don't sell bait, or rent boats any more.

I believe the place mentioned on 65 is Swanee's Surplus. Also, I think the Floetilla has gone rental out of the Pier. Might try Big Sandy Sports also, I'm a little confused on what they've got going now, but might be worth a shot.

Thanks for the info guys. Sounds like we are going to rent from "THe Lodge". I wish we could use the FLoetilla but we asked wayne a few years ago and he said he can't rent it out because of insurance reasons. Understandable I guess. Maybe he has since changed his mind.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
