Does Anybody Remember?


Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone. My Grandfather had a cabin on Rainy between Ranier and the Thunderbird during 1967 to 1974. It is where I was introduced to my life long love of the outdoors. The guy who lived next to us was named Ernie and was a Postman, I believe. He showed us some great spots and knew the lake well. I was wondering what happend to him and wanted to thank his kids for all the help he gave my grandfather. Thanks, those were great times.

HI MN.,

WOODY WOULD HAVE BEEN JUST A LITTLE TIKE THEN, BUT LIVED IN RANIER, SO HE MAY REMEMBER HIM.

Sorry Greenhead- I don't remember Earnie the Postman because we got our mail at the Ranier Post Office. I do remember Earnie Johnson stopping by our place all the time for coffee but I don't think he was a postman. Woody

I may be wrong on the postman part as I was young back then (4-10), I'll have to ask my dad. I do remember him being fairly old and having a dog named Pepper. I believe he lived in town and had the cabin east of Ranier. He helped my grandfather out and showed us some great spots. I just wonder if anyone remembers him and what happend to him.

I talked with my dad and the guys name was Ernie Thiele he was about 65 back in 1970. He really helped my grandfather out on his cabin and was a heck of a fishermen. I remember limits of walleyes and long runs to Seine and Swell bays. It was a great time to fish back then before the dead sea 80's.Does any one have any good old time stories?

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
