Rainy Lake?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I can get some good lake maps (for contour and navigation) for Rainy Lake? Am heading there this summer and need to find the hot spots and make sure I don't hit any of those rocks!! smile

Contact Woody's. They have or had a laminated set of maps that stretched from I-Falls out to the East end. It was a 7 piece set if I remember right. They cost in the neighborhood of $35.00 several years ago. I not sure of the cost today.

I have the chip but I wouldn't leave the dock without the laminated set in my boat. It doesn't matter if this is your only trip to Rainy or if you go every week, this is the "must have" map for the lake IMHO.

Go luck on your trip and have a great time!!

I don't know if you have a GPS or not. If you do, make sure you buy the new Lake of the Woods chip. It also includes Rainy Lake and the Rainy River.

If not, buy the Lakemaster map for Rainy. L&M might have it.

I don't think Lakemaster has published a paper map for Rainy yet? Their new LOW/Rainy chip is awesome.

THe maps and chips will help, but there is a reason it is clearly stated "not for Navigation " on both. Do not loose your common sense when on Rainy or your trip will be very expensive. There are countless --and always will be things that "are not on the map" good luck

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
