WOW...over 500 views and one fishing report...if you have had luck like mine i'd understand not posting anything. ive been fishing out of tilsons and not doing so good...tried 19ft down to 38 ft and got a 24 incher last night suspended 17ft off the bottom and that was it last night from 230 till 500. 7 fish in 3 times out...0 keepers...anybody doing any good??? even bad reports are better than no reports. i had been graphing some that werent biting before but last night the graph was not lighting up much...

Hey Chevy- Sounds like you were fishing around that 15' hump south of American Narrows where the road is plowed. Try getting away from the road and go a couple blocks Northwest and look for about 39' (just east of the 10') Also North towards that 11' just before it comes up in about 40'. The north side of the channel marker can also be deadly. Good Luck , Woody

HI Z-85,

WHEN THIS COLD WEATHER HITS US HARD, WE WANT TO TAKE THE EASIEST ROUTE & HOPE WE CATCH FISH, MEANING WE GO WHERE THE PLOWED ROAD GOES...THOSE FISH ARE HEARING CONSTANT TRAFFIC, VEHICLES, SNOWMACHINES & EXSISTING PERMANANT HOUSES. IF YOU HAVE THE CHIP, USE IT., LOOK FOR AREAS WHERE THERE IS A BREAKLINE, AND IT LEVELS OFF A LITTLE. THE BUNCH OF GUYS I HAVE BEEN FISHING WITH HAVE BEEN FISHING ONLY SANDBAY IN 22 TO 26 FEET & DONE VERY WELL, BUT SATURDAY IT REALLY HAD SLOWED DOWN, SO SUNDAY WE DECIDED TO TRY AMERICAN NARROWS, WE HAD 5 GUYS, 4 PORTABLES..AND BOMBED...3 WALLEYES & 1-TULLIBEE. BUT I WILL CHALK THAT UP TO JUST A POOR DAY TO FISH THE AREA WE WERE IN. RAINY IS SO VAST, AND THE AREAS YOU CAN FISH ARE ENDLESS, MY SUGGESTION IS GET AWAY FROM THE BEATEN PATH & YOU WILL FIND A HONEY HOLE, ITS JUST TOUGHER WHEN ITS 10 TO 50 BELOW.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

We fished at American Narrows today,kept 4 eaters,released a 28 and a 24 incher.We had to move around alot stayed mostly in the 32 to 38' depths. The eye's where real finicky had to change up alot,jigging spoons,raps,differant color jig heads,plain hooks.

There is alot of water to cover at the narrows,FM is right, get off the road, drill where no one else has.The fish are there just a bit more work to get them.

The last couple days our guests caught some quality fish mid 20's and everybody ate fish. The slush was not as big a factor and yesterday was down right pleasant although we got some unussually high gusts of wind in the late afternoon. On Rainy walleyes stay open till mid-April and pike never closes. We have some inexpensive yet quality fish house packages available. For those with their own gear and a Lakemaster chip Rainy is a portable paradise. Our deluxe lodging specials can't be beat. February, March and the first two weeks of April are by far and away the best and most pleasant times to ice fish on Rainy. Give us a call 866-410-5001 or email me at [email protected] I look forward to hearing from you. Woody

Hey Woody! This is Chris Raisanen. You took my dad (John Raisanen), my bother, and i out fishing over labor day weekend this past year. My family wants to do a big fishing trip, but my brother and i have been so busy with hockey. Our hockey will get done with in late February and was looking for a trip. And since i just read about the walleye season being open until mid april up there i have been trying to convince my dad to go up to rainy again. Is the walleye season and crappie season still good up on rainy in march-april? Also don't you rent snowmobiles for familys that don't have one? Well i hope to hear back from you Woody because i had a fun time and would like to fish up there again!

Thanks, Chris

well all i have to say is this is a great site with information from the best sticks on the lake!!!

i have lived here only 10 months and ive had some of the best fishing in my life on this lake already and i wish i could say its cause of me...woody...fishmeister...bassbuster, and many many more have helped give me info to find fish and the right way to fish them. fishmeister told me where to go to catch crappies in the fall and sure enough they were right where he said they were..woody told me many spots to go and fish this winter and they have ALL been good and some amazing!

saturday i went where woody said they should be and it was a slugfest for about 3 hours...and yes...i got away from traffic!!! i had to squint to see the group of houses so figured that was far enough...27 fish..22 walleyes kept 8 and all about 14 to 17 inches..4 big ones...21.21.24.25 inchers and 5 bonus jumbo's! the next day we only caught 10 total kept 4 walleyes and 3 perch (close to a pound) we only fished for a half the day and didn't stay for the afternoon bite cause of the superbowl..

all the lakes in northern mn have alot of good fishing...but the quality of fish here is amazing! but if your looking for a SURE thing kind of trip you need to talk to one of these guys and they will get you dialed in...on the fish and a place to stay...oh yea..without the gouging on pricing!!

HEY Z-85,

THAT WAS SOME NICE COMPLIMENTS, WE ALL APPRECIATE THEM, BUT AS BASSBUSTER SAID WE DO HAVE DOWN DAYS TOO, AFTER ALL WE ARE HUMAN. YOU HAVE ONLY TOUCHED THE ICEBERG, RAINY HAS UNLIMITED FISHING STRUCTURE, YOU WILL NEVER EVEN COME CLOSE TO FISHING ALL OF IT IN A LIFETIME!!! BUT YOUR RIGHT, MOST FOLKS DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE CROWN JEWEL WE HAVE HERE. FOLKS CAN BRAG ABOUT LEECH, MILLE LACS, LOW, RED...BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALL BEEN GREAT PRODUCERS FOR MANY YEARS...HOWEVER I WOULD NOT TRADE RAINY FOR ANY OF THEM., I LIKE THE WAY ONE DAY YOU CAN GO JUST POUND THEM IN ONE SPOT, YOU GO THERE THE NEXT DAY, SAME EXACT WEATHER, AND THEY ARE GONE., SO YOU NEED TO ADJUST. AFTER YOU FISH IT & LEARN IT, YOU WILL LEARN THE PATTERNS. NOT TO MANY LAKES YOU CAN FISH IN THE WINTER WHERE 8 TO 12 LB WALLEYES ARE COMMON. LAST SUNDAY,I WAS IN 40 FOOT OF WATER & CAUGHT A NICE LIMIT OF EYES, NO FISH IN THE SLOT & LOTS OF SMALL FISH, BUT THAT IS WHAT IS SO NEAT, ONE TIME YOU MIGHT GO OUT & CAN ONLY CATCH SLOT FISH, NEXT TIME A MIXTURE OF 6" TO 26" FISH, NEXT TIME YOU BOMB!!! I'M CLOSE TO MY 30TH YEAR FISHING RAINY, ITS CRAPPIE, WALLEYE, SAUGER, NORTHERN HAS NEVER BEEN BETTER!!!

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Right On Z85- BB,Fishmeister,myself and many others agree on alot of things especially that Rainy is the best and most diverse portable ice fishery in the U.S. All you really need is a chip like the Lakemaster, your gear and a few pointers and your off to the races. Keep up the good work. Woody

I was out today ,we went east of Dryweed to stubbs shoal. We took sleds from American Narrows , Woody is right there was little slush till we got out to stubbs, there we found lots of slush in places you could get around but you need to be real careful and be prepared for the slush.Dont go alone ! The fishing was slow we did get a couple of slot fish and one eater.

We fished last Fri and Sat out of our perm house in sandbay. Fishing was real slow. We took sleds out and fished a few of the main lake structures from Birch Point towards American Narrows. Fishing was slow every where for us. We hooked into a few big pike on the reefs in shallower and the few eyes we did get were in 31-40 ft. Lake travel was good Fri and Sat morn. After the warm weather and wind hit Sat afternoon, it really loosened the slush back up. It was a mess getting back to the perm house Sat evening in the slush and wind. Still great to be out and very peaceful. Rainy won this time, but we'll be back!

Fishing this past sunday for big pike was awesome! 4 fish in 4 hours ranging between 38-and 42 inches. We had a beatutiful day on Rainy and I can honestly say it is some of the best ice fishing in North America. If you are looking to catch some great fish and learn the lake, hook up with Woody and watch for posting from him and Bill Landmark for the straight scoop!

I have not seen alot of trucks venturing to far off the plowed roads, RAINY HAS CURRENT ! I would not be driving all over the lake.You could drive on at Tilsons creek. There is a plowed road out to some pretty good fishing spots you could pull your house out there.

Had an absolute blast fishing with the fellas from Olympic Steel yesterday. Lots of walleyes from 24" to 27" and no shortage of pike. It was a little windy but March madness has definately begun. Woody

Tip-up fishing is simply the best right now! If you want a shot at a 20 pound+ pike get on the bus Gus. Pike are staging around entrances to shallow bays in 10 to 25' in addition to shallow reefs. While you have your tip-up out, you can, in many cases just 10 or 15 yards away, jig for hog walleyes where it drops down on a ledge or flattens out. From now till mid-April theres going to be alot of dashing and diving for some fish that have more than normal vim and vigor! We are fairly booked up for the next four weekends (we have a few openings) but we have a fair amount of Mon-Tue-Wed space. If we are booked try the Falls Motel, Kelley will treat you right. Turn off the talking heads and load up the sleds, we're having a party. Woody

Sooo many variables there - cold, average or warm temps., sunny or cloudy, rain, snow or dry, etc. In a normal world maybe around April 29 but lows are forecasted in single digits for a couple nights a week from now and again 5 days after that.

      On the south end...  Fishing remains excellent with a nice mix of eaters, slots and trophy walleyes.   Two great ways to catch walleyes this time of year, crawler harnesses and crankbaits.  Walleyes are hanging out on the deep mud in 30 - 36' of water.  Cover water by drifting or trolling.  Crawler harnesses (snelled spinners) in hammered gold, pink, glow or orange with a 1-2 ounce weight.  The second technique is trolling crankbaits through various schools of walleyes over the deep mud.  Get lures down with lead core line, a 4 ounce bottom bouncer, snap weights, 3 way rig or downriggers.  Switch colors often but some starters, pink uv firetiger, chrome / blue, firetiger, and gold.  
      On the Rainy River...   Walleyes are scattered on flats and in deeper holes.  Trolling crankbaits this time of year to cover water is effective.  Mix of walleyes and saugers.  Sturgeon anglers targeting deep holes with sturgeon rigs and crawlers or frozen emerald shiners.  Smallmouth bass and pike active around current breaks, rocky areas and weed edges. 
      Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters.  There are shuttle / passenger services available to the Angle via boat.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.  
      Strong walleye bite with lots of eater fish on the mud adjacent to reefs and islands throughout the Angle.  Much like the south end, spinners with a crawler or trolling crankbaits both are producing good numbers of fish.  Pike and muskies being caught casting bays and trolling rocky point areas.  Smallies in their summer pattern, 4 - 15' in rocky areas.

      Had a fun time camping at Bowstring and fishing monday to wednesday. 95 % I would say were using jig and minnow.  We fished crawlers cuz it's what we do... lol Brought 100 up there from the back yard. Didn't bring any home.  Caught 32 altogether. Had a nice meal monday p.m. and brought a few home, the rest stayed there. We brought 16 nice perch back home also. Water was about 54 in the morning and would get up to 60 or so. Fish were deeper than we have fished in the past. 14 to 20 was a good area. Hope to get back up there the end of June for a couple days and then in September. Brother in law had a couple nice 19's and I had a nice 20 for our biggest. Weather was about as nice as it can possibly get which aint the best for eyes but tons better than the freeze to death that we had a year earlier !

      When was the last time you heard anyone rant and rave about Eurasian Water Milfoil? Introduced to MN in 1987 and through the 90’s, we complained, complained, blamed the DNR, cried that this invasive weed was going to kill off many fish because the invasive plant overtook native vegetation. DNR, lake associations and others monitored lake assesses for years to prevent transfer to no avail. Were creatures of habit and don’t like change. And NO Eurasians Water Milfoil did not kill off all the fish, as lots of fish still are caught along the much easier defined weed lines. Of the 388 DNR reported infested lakes only 20 new lakes were added in the last year and ½ and no longer seen to be an issue.
      Now we have a Zebra Mussel invasion, introduced to MN in 1995 with the same, rant & rave as was with the EW Milfoil, fostered by the DNR and news media with all the negative effects. They will eat all the Zooplankton fish food, large attachments to solid objects, sharp shells on bottom cutting swimmers feet etc. What we hear little about Zebras each adult filters 1 quart of water daily eating algae, a single cell plant Phytoplankton, including the toxic Blue-Green algae which for years been known to kill fish, dogs and humans. A female can produce a million eggs annually so the spread in infested lakes is rapid. Within a couple years the green, brown lakes are clear promoting vegetation growth to deeper water providing more cover for smaller fish. It ticks us fishing people off because our fishing techniques used for the last 50 years no longer work as fish feeding habits change. For us avid fishing people we will learn the new fish feeding habits on infested lakes rather quickly while occasional fishers may never learn new techniques which will increase fish population. While Zebras filter vast amount of algae they secrete a highly nutrient feces on the lake bottom providing a smorgasbord for bottom feeders including many of the minnows and other bait we use. After 4 to 5 years a large number of zebra die as their algae food supply is depleted.
      Hang in there, 465 bodies of MN waters already infected with Zebras with70 in 2019/2020. Infestation will continue as most boat access will not be monitored and the vast majority of boaters could care less about prevention. Another infestation will most likely happen and we will no longer focus on Zebras. Just a thought.
      The first excel file is the DNR link to all infestations. Second file Eurasian milfoil and Zebra lakes

      So after returning to Minnesota after living pretty much everywhere else, I have finally returned to fishing.  Didn't realize how much I missed it until I started again.  I'm tired of fishing the river under the bridge like a troll so I'm looking for some good spots to shore fish around Ottertail.  My regular spot is too warm now and the fish have moved on.    I'm one of the odd balls who's not into muskies or walleyes.  Really prefer bluegill and bass.  I'm a bobber, nightcrawler and beer kinda girl.  Any advice on where to go?  How are the lakes in Maplewood State Park.

      On the south end...  The deep summer "Dog Days" patterns for walleyes are in full swing producing excellent fishing.  As a rule, the big walleyes are hanging out on the deep mud in 30 - 34' of water.  Two main techniques, drifting or trolling spinners with crawlers or leeches at about 1.0 - 1.25 MPH.  Hammered gold, hammered silver and glow white are good starting colors.  The second technique is trolling crankbaits through various schools of walleyes over the deep mud.  Switch colors often but some starters, pink uv firetiger, chrome / blue, firetiger, and gold.  Some walleyes are still being caught shallow based on forage opportunities.  Different schools taking advantage of current conditions in different areas.  Watch electronics and go fishing!
      On the Rainy River...   Walleyes scattered on flats and in deeper holes.  Trolling crankbaits and covering water effective.  Sturgeon living in deep holes throughout river.  Smallmouth bass and pike active around current breaks, rocky areas and weed edges. 
      Up at the NW Angle...  Until the US / Canada border opens, guests can travel across the lake staying and fishing in MN waters.  There are shuttle services available and fishing for multi species has been excellent.  Check with your favorite NW Angle resort for options.  
      Good walleye fishing continues north of Garden Island, around Little Oak Island and areas north and east of Little Oak with deeper mud.  Spinners with a crawler or trolling crankbaits both producing good numbers of walleyes.  Pike and muskies in deep bays and rocky points.  Smallmouth bass in 4 - 14' in rocky areas reacting well to crankbaits.

      After fishing every handful in years in Minnesota for 40 years, I'm FINALLY going to bring my wife up to Vermillion and see it for the first time.   I'm chasing smallmouth and pike only (well, I'll gladly wrestle with a fooled Musky but not fishing for them).   If the largemouth fishing is better than the smallmouths, we'd probably chase some of them too.    Staying at Ludlows on the island.   Boy I'd love ANY help with where to start my searching for the smallies and pike and what to key in on that time of year.   I'll have basically two days to fish and will have my own bass boat.   I am an artificial bait only guy and catch and release.   Just looking for a bunch of tugs on the line and hopefully put my wife on some action.  Any guidance or direction??   
       
      How deep are the smallies and what do they relate to that time of year?   Are the pike around visible weeds or submerged cabbage or something?   I'm coming in clueless.   Sure appreciate ANY help anyone's willing to provide.   Thanks!!!   Yancey from St. Louis, MO

      Nice work gents! Looks like the back-end of summer bite is heating up. Love this time of year as we head into Sept. How is the water level with all the storms passing through? Has looked rainy lately. Last I was up was early July after that 8" rain storm and the levels were back up to normal after being low in June.

      Seven specie day today.  Live bait not required!  Couple of things of note...   I caught eight nice crappies this morning on a deep rock reef, along with a bunch of plump gills. Seems odd, but I’ll take it.  This afternoon, I targeted ciscos and whitefish out over the basin. Success!  Was happy since I now know whitefish can be targeted year round, not just thru the ice.  I also enjoyed the challenge of a different species that not many folks know about.  Was a unique and fun experience.  By the way, everything I caught was immediately released.

      Our week (7/25-8/1) wasn't greatly productive fish wise but I could never really get a pattern to work. I usually use a lindy rig with a half crawler. When we did try jig/minnow not much either. The start of the week the wind was tough to hold on a spot. Later we had no wind and high temps. I marked some surface temps that were like 78 deg, that's pretty warm.   I went down to Brule narrows one day, never been before. Picked a reef and caught a 19" eye pretty quick and then boat control got to be an issue.   Might try a week in Sept once I am retired (Friday is my last day) but I sure miss the ability to fish north of the border.   Bill

      What is the best time of year for brookies. I've tried spring but waters too cold, summer, bugs bad but fishing good. Never tried fall but I am think that might be the ticket. Usually use worms but sometimes spinner. Is there a special trick to keep the chubs away? Lots of them in my creek.

      Good luck with your toilet. LOL Let me know how it works after a weekend when the kids and grandkids are there using it? Not sure how the Biolet works, we had a top of the line Sun Mar. There is a tray in the bottom of the unit that is supposed to hold the extra urine that goes through the compost material. After a weekend with 5 females, and 3 males using it that tray would be full to overflowing. Wouldn't have been a problem if the girls would have cleaned it out. They didn't, I had to. The whole bottom of that unit would have an inch of urine in there, that is GROSS!   Oh yea, there's an overflow tube on the Sun Mar. This would fill up with the fine compost material, and plug up, now where do you think the overflow goes? And yes, I had 2 fans in my exhaust pipe, no it didn't help it dry out any faster, but they did help keep the smell down. The only thing I can say about ours is that there are plenty of people out there that wanted to buy it when we were done using it. They do keep a good value, especially up here. If I was you I'd check out more than one brand, and one user. I'm guessin if you posted a question on facebook, you might get a variety of user opinions. We hated ours, maybe you'll love yours. I'll just leave this topic alone, and wish you good luck. lol Jim
