Fall get together at Woody's on Rainy Lake

Recommended Posts

Grabs

Well guys, after going to Woody's for our event at the beginning of June, Woody has invited us back up at a reduced lodging price for the fall. He is willing to give us 50% off of lodging, I am not completely sure what this equates to, but I will soon find out.

How many would be interested and what weekends DON'T work during the month of Sept?

sounds like fun to me. As long as it's not the first weekend due to the metro league.

My vote is for the 13th and 14th! The later dates may interfere with duck opener!

I was thinking the same thing Cory. Although... we saw some duck blinds in black bay. A weekend of good fishing and hunting would be fun!

The later the better, then we don't have to worry about the duck hunters!LOL

I definitely am interested. Nothing beats fishing in the Fall!

Can't join you guys. Heavy projects underway at that time and with pheasant opener (13th?), duck and goose hunting, fogettaboutit!

My boat usually goes on long term bed rest in September, that's how much time I have for fishing!

Sounds like fun though!!

Say, Cory, you better check with your insurance agent before you go back there!! LOL tongue.gif

OOOOOOO....
Duck hunting and fishing....sounds like fun.
If I can swing it, I can bring up all the dekes we'd need, but we'll have to check with Woody on where we can and cannot hunt since most of Rainy is in the National Park and there is no hunting allowed there.

Ok,..just got off the phone with Woody. He says fishing is currently really great and he is catching a lot of pigs right in front of the resort with jigs and leeches.

He is really excited about having us back and here are the details I recieved from him.

He is offering us 50% off of lodging from Sept 15th - Dec 15th. This is really cheap!
Minimum of 3 night stay. You can go out to the site to see the details and costs of each of the rooms he has: http://www.fairlyreliable.com/

Unfortunately he is already pretty well booked for the month of Sept., but the resort is completely open for the following dates:
Oct 2nd, 3rd & 4th - I can't go this weekend
Oct 9th, 10th & 11th
Oct 16th, 17th & 18th
Oct 30th, 31st & 1st

Now there are a few weekends in Sept that there are 2 of the four rooms open, if smaller groups wanted to go, but it would sure be a blast too book the entire resort for 3 nights. There is room for approximately 22 people at the resort.

What do we think?

Sounds like a good time again. Would it be competitive or just for the fun of fishing together one last time before the snow flies? Count me in either way... Friday to Sunday whenever.

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      Mmmmmmm~~~~ here's one for ya! For years we have been trying to get our fave Mayfly Rafts & Spikes into a booth at The State Fair. Rafts = ~~~  Honey Waffle coated with Dark Chocolate Glaze n Peanut Butter then sprinkled with Frozen Real Maple Syrup dipped Mayflys.  To die for. Spikes  =  ~~~ Deep Fried Triple Thick Cut of F&D Smoked Bacon dipped into Smoked flavored Pancake Batter an dipped in Maple Syrup then rolled in pile of frozen Hickory smoked MayFlys. Both Killer Pak~ons seved on a stick or in a Deep Fried Walleye Belly Fillet. Power good experience that takes you places you never been before'!! : )   Keep on rocken!   T

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Fished the lake this morning ,,, water temps were 72-74 and the flys were hatching ,,, unhooking the walleyes they were coughing up fly larvae,,, Need to power wash the boat now ,,, No keepers today but lots of overs and 2 unders mixed in with some pike and sunnies on flicker minnows ,,, Go figure

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was beginning to think I lost my touch. Took a beating this winter, but hopefully it will come back again. Also would like to see some more restrictions on the crappies. Time to start checking the deeper weed beds I guess. I know the water temps have been fluctuating a lot this spring and maybe they skipped the spawn. 
    • Borch
      Crappies have been hard for me to pin down on other waters as well.  Seems they are not were they usually are and I wonder if the weird winter to summer transition is to blame.  Time to start looking in other parts of the water column.
