Fish the “FISH” not the “SPOT.” Seasoned Rainy Lake walleye anglers understand that deep water reef fishing is a game of hide and seek. Spots (reef tops and edges) are often huge, sometimes covering half a football field or more. Simply fishing the spot might produce a fish here and there but your chances of dragging your jig over a school of feeding walleye and catching a limit are slim at best. Spend a little extra time before you drop that fishing line; keep your big motor down and scour the structure with your electronics. Once you have a school of fish located park directly over them or mark them so you can keep your bait in the fish and not just on the spot.
These fine businesses have everything you need to equip yourselves for your Rainy Lake adventure.
