Statewide LETS: Rainy Lake

Recommended Posts

So with the first event of the season just over a week away I figured we could start leading up to the event with some conversation of what to expect, when people plan to arrive, maybe chat about somethings we learned from last years Vermillion event that teams are planning on using and maybe revisit some of the stores from last year!

Here's to www.athomeatWoody'sPub.com

Figured I would add the special regulations that Rainy has being a border water.

********************************************
Rainy Lake (including the Rainy River above the dam at International Falls, all of Rainy Lake to the dam at Kettle Falls, Black Bay including Gold Portage below the rapids, all of the Rat Root River, and Rat Root Lake; Koochiching and St. Louis Counties)
WALLEYE and SAUGER: Possession limit of 8 (Not more than 4 can be walleye; fish from 17" through 28" must be immediately released; only one walleye over 28".
LETS league minimum is 12"
Page 34 & 44

Northern Pike: 3 with only 1 over 28"
LETS league minimum is 20"
Page 45

Crappies: 10
LETS league minimum is 9"
Page 45

Muskie: Does not open until June 15th

Largemouth or smallmouth bass(either or combined): 6
LETS league minimum is 12"
Page 45

For all other species, normal state inland limits and seasons apply.

Thanks Grabs! I have a feeling these special regs are going to have a big impact on the amount of fish being weighed!

Anyone else having problems concentrating on work these days???

The clueless clan will be there late thurs am. We are staying across from Woodys at Taras Wharf B & B - Woody pulled some strings for us and got us in there for the same rate he was offering!

Can't believe it's only a few days away!! I can't wait - now if I can just get my order from Cabelas before I leave I'll be set...

Just a note guys. I talked to someone up at Woody's and make sure before venturing out ANYWHERE on Rainy Lake to use extreme caution with your boats. The water levels are really low and there are lots of rocks that are dangerous. Driving in the middle of the big lake thinking it's safe is not going to help at all.

Bring you aluminum props for this lake smile.gif

I really don't want to have a another bill for $1200 after this trip if I hit a rock, so please look out for them and try to mark them on a map for others??? Best of all, buy a very detailed map to help navigate and share your findings.

P.S. the fish are on fire up there! smile.gif Just thought I'd add to the anxiety. LOL

Josh is right, we will probably cook fish both nights, that is if the walleye fishing is good to us.

    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
    • I have no doubt that by now there is something on the market that is better than my FL-20 and my FL-8 but I already own them and they work for me and I am long over the days where I have to have the latest and greatest fishing equipment.    Most of these gadgets, gizmos and lures are better at catching fishermen than fish.
    • My bird places nice with vexilars and doesn't get it too bad when there is a marcum in the next hole.   Keep my FL18 as a backup/loaner, it's been bulletproof.  But I haven't looked backed since I got an ice55 bird.    
    • lol. my brother hates them also cuz they thow a robin chick out of the nest sometimes. Only a couple here, if i had too my they would meet my 17 pellet. Red squirrels get a pass. not enough here. Grays are a different story. 
    • put a new floor in over the past month and finished it off by winterized it on Saturday.
