I owe the girls a fishing trip.....

Recommended Posts

Dr. Bob

I owe my two oldest daughters a fishing trip. I brought their little sister and brother to Rainy River (Clementson) last spring and I also to Basswood over the 4th of July. The 2 older ones were unable to go on these trips so I promised I'd take them someplace special before the snow flies.

I've only been there once, and did not get to fish, but I made reservations yesterday for a mid September weekend at Kettel Falls Hotel. I figured that would be pretty special grin.gif and hopefully I can get them into some nice walleyes.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Should I take the portage into Rainy or should I stick with Namakan? What would be good areas, methods, baits ect. for that time of year.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I can hardly wait! The girls are pretty excited too!

Rainy Lake would definitely produce the most walleyes, problem is its tough to catch slot fish, but great fun. I would certainly fish Rainy for the action and maybe fish Namakan if getting keepers is a problem. A good area not far from Kettle is Mica Bay, it should be a good jig and minnow area then. Big pike start turning on that time of year as well in either lake. The staff at Rainy would be very helpful to you, and they have a resident guide that could answer questions for you as well. Remember that Namakan and Rainy have different slots.

Thanks a Bunch Guys,

It sounds like Rainy is the place to go. I do not care if we catch any eaters or not. I'd just like to get the girls into some nice ones.

I hope the weather and wind behave so we can get out on Rainy. All I have is a 16 ft Lund fishing boat with a 25 Johnson.

Thanks again!
