Why are all these Minnesota fisherman assholes? No respect for other fisherman. Very rude and don't know how to operate there boat on the water.

Fished on Monday with Capt Matt of Rainydaze guide service . Raw account east winds and occasional drizzle but, did well over wood in 19-20 fow for crappies and walleyes .  Great eating too ! 1/8 oz jigs and minnows did the job .

Sorry for the late report. Fishing was a bit of a struggle as the mayfly hatch was still going. Fish were scattered all over the place. We would catch a few and they would be gone (guess thats how it goes on Rainy). We never locked into them. 

Our best luck by far was with crawlers (half usually) with orange spinner/colors.  

Cast gold spinners/colors were best. 

Purple crank baits got a few northerns trolling. 

Biggest eye was 22 inches. Guess the fishing was picking up when we were leaving.

We were not finding fish on the reefs last week (July 7-13, 2018). They were in deeper flats where there was a good amount of moving water (either wind or current) with access to deep water. We marked a ton of fish but they just wanted something that mimicked the mayfly hatch.

We fished pretty hard a enjoyed the heck out of the lake but never dialed into the fish. Also enjoyed Island View Lodge. 

Good luck all.

Be there tomorrow.  Found fish in mid 20's last year.  Fatheads with a jig is all I needed.  Trolled and picked up some larger one's that were chasing bait balls.  Have fun, and good luck.

Coming to Rainy in a few weeks. Just wondering if there are any updates. Colors to use, minnows, leeches, crawlers?? Depths? Don’t need locations, just want to make sure we have what we need when we get there. 

Hopefully we can catch some walleyes, pike and a few bass or panfish. 

Any help would be appreciated.
