Outlook for next week


Recommended Posts

A group of us will be up for a week starting Saturday, reading some of the other posts and responses has me wondering where the walleyes will be when we arrive. Are the fish on the reefs yet?, or are the shallows producing?.

HI P.T.,

YES, THE WALLEYES ARE ON THE REEFS, SOME NEVER LEAVE THE REEFS, BUT YOU MAY HAVE TO CHECK OUT A NUMBER OF REEFS TO FIND THEM. I WOULD ALSO TRY THE WINDY SHORES., ALSO TRY PLACES WHERE THERE ARE GRADUAL BREAKLINES, ALSO OUT FROM CURRENT AREAS ARE HOLDING FISH., AND BELIEVE ME THERE IS CURRENT, LAKE IS HIGH, BUT IN GOOD SHAPE.

SINCERELY,

FISHMIESTER

Our group will be heading up this week from Illinois & Indiana & we will be staying at the Island View cottages. This is our 5th trip to Rainy Lake. We will be there from June 4th through the 10th. We are pretty familiar with the main fishing spots on the lake but are looking to target Big Northern, Big Walleye, and some eaters mixed in. We have never been there in the spring, just the fall(1st week of september). What are the different patterns and what type of structure do we find he fish in this time of year. In the fall we were resorting to trolling deep as we could get. It catches fish but we are more of the casting crew if you know what I mean.

Thanks for any advice and stop by the bar(you can usually find us late) ,

I'm Larry and I'm usually wearing a 2003 US Open Hat.

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
