65-80 Fish in 4 hours!
That is the buzz on the dock lately, 3 people and 65-80 fish in a morning. Lots of good fishing is in progress. The guides have found some sweet spots and boy are they producing!  Walleye and Saugers of all sizes have been caught lately; a nice 30 inch trophy was caught and released this past week along with the hundreds of others. It is prime time fishing time, where are you?!?!?  The best presentation has been 3/8 oz jigs tipped with a minnow or leech, a few have had success with hammered gold spinners but the jig is being favored at this time.  This summer’s walleye fishing is just starting to heat up.

Some good smallmouth bass fishing has been had by anglers as well this week. They have found the best results in less than ten feet of water casting with spinner baits in the nearby islands close to the lodge. 

Ontario Muskie Fishing opens Saturday
The muskie fishing season opens up this Saturday and once we get a three weeks of 70+ temperatures we will really start to see some good action.  We have thousands of bays to explore and hunt for this fighter. The guides are getting excited to start the hunt, give us a call and book in your trip, mid July thru October is the best time of the year!

No passport needed…
Take advantage of our boat passenger service from our Sportsman’s Rainy River location and head to the island. You will stay in Minnesota the whole time and enjoy great views to boot.
