Heading Back Up

3 posts in this topic

Had a great trip over the opener flying out of Rainy Lake. 8 guys and a lot of fish caught. Walleyes had not spawned yet and we found a lot of 24-27" that were similar to footballs and a few larger. The range of depth was 5' to 27' and everywhere in between. We did not catch a lot of pike but we don't really pursue them too hard.

Weather was cold and rainy most of the time but when you are consistently catching nice fish no one cares what the weather is like. Ended up working extremely hard to find some eaters but had a great shore lunch on the only day it was clear.

Our outfitter has a great setup, the cabins can comfortably hold 8 people and all of the wet gear you can think of. Even with 8 guys and wet gear there is plenty of room to dry everything out and make the bell for the evening fishing.

Heading back up to the same lake on Saturday with family, can't wait...Been told by a few that a lot of the lakes NE of Nipigon have been getting steady rain since we left, could make for another great trip!

Nice report, sounds like you had a great time. Which outfitter did you go with?

Rusty Myers out of Fort Frances. They have great boats and motors and the cabins are some of the best I have seen. The fishing has been great for us each year regardless of the lake we go to.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
