Spent the last week on one of the finest fishing lakes in Minnesota, Rainy Lake. Here are just a few images from the week. We were catching fish so I didn't have all that much time for photos smile

Looks like a great time Dan. That shot of you with the fish looks a little like Wilson from "Home Improvement".

LOL, that was my intent Mike! Got to keep my identity secret! I should have photo shopped that hood so it covered a bit more!

Nice fish, Wilson. grin Nice shots to boot. It must be tough for fishing to be so good that you don't have much time to pick up the camera. smile

Awesome shots Dan. My favorites are #1 and #8. Love the way the light reflects through the fishing line in #8.

Those look great! Really liked the 6th one. Love how the light bounce of the lower clouds as the sun sets.

I love rainy lake, fished it alot this summer and the middle of july was my first time ever fishing it! I vote for Rainy Lake as one of the best places on earth. I wish it was next July right now.

Did you fly over our wing spot in Savage last night? You missed a good time Mr. Selleck! Swartzy was in rare form!

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
