What is your take on lakes like Rainy, Kabetagoma, Lac La Croix, ect. Ive got to figureout the best way to use my vacation! Thanks Guys -(Contact Us Please)

Rainy is good for pike, especially if your willing to travel. I made a trip up to Ash bay on the Canadian side and did great. We ended up with 20+ fish all in the 10-15lb range with a couple nicer ones.

Cass Lake has some Monster Muskey and Pike.

The pond can hold its own as well.

But i believe, that rainy and red are the top lakes in this area. Its pretty tough to beat these two lakes. As everyone knows, the pictures and stats i believe can back it up.

URL for pike, Mile lacs or the big v for ski's. But with only three days you might be better off hiring a guide for at least the first day. Those are some big bodies of water to find the fish on your own.

Esoxmn has a great point in hiring a guide . I fished Vermilion last year for 16 hrs one day last year with only a 45" Northern to show for it . At one point a guide was following us around and then we followed him for a bit, but in the end he had a better idea of where to fish that day . It was a June day and the fishing was slow and I think if you want to maximize your fishing a guide would be the way to go . But there is a lot to be said for going it on your own , just come up with a good fishing stratagy and try and stick with it .

I have an uncle who lives on Vermillion and he says 50+ inch muskies are quite frequent. Lake of the woods is also another great muskie fishery. Both hold gigantic pike also.

1)Leech

2)Cass/Pike Bay

3)Vermillion

4)Mille Lacs

5)Lake of the Woods
