2013 Opening Weekend Fishing on Perrault Lake

Just a few days of fishing in so far here at Rainbow Point Lodge on Perrault Lake for the 2013 fishing season.  NOTHING SHORT OF FANTASTIC!!   Having the ice out was nail biter, but Saturday afternoon our guests were able to get out on Perrault Lake and were not disappointed.  Saturday saw calm winds, overcast skies, but not rainy until evening.  Couldn't ask for much nicer for an opener weekend.  Chuck Hartman from Fort Meyers  FL caught and  released a 31" walleye AND a 30" walleye on Sunday  - talk about his lucky day!  

Ken Sharlein from Arkdale, Wisconsin also released a 31+ incher,  and James Dean from Winnipeg released another 30 incher. 

This doesn't mention the big northerns that are aggressive as always in the spring time, giving all the anglers a run for their money!  Huge perch also being caught.   Thanks to all of the guests for releasing all of these bigger fish to make sure that the fishery here on Perrault remains as great as it for future generations.  This is especially important in a year like this when the spring is so late.  We all want the fish to have a chance for a successful spawn.   Walleyes  are biting really light, so the best success has been with the guys using 1/8 oz jigs with minnows, and letting them take the line for awhile.    Not much time to post, but I know many of you are dying to get some news, so here it was.   Will post more as I have time!  

Still some openings for the next couple of weeks of season, so if you have a few days to spare and you think a fishing trip is long overdue, give us a shout, and we'll see where we can fit you in!
