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

LETS league minimum is 9"
Page 45

Muskie: Does not open until June 15th

Page 45

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.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
