The other day I was out on Rainy Lake and decided to check out some of my summer walleye spots. The first spot I checked is an outer island with a long rock point jutting out with deep water very close. I tossed a jig out on the end into about five feet of water and hooked a pike close to 40 inches. However, after a couple of minutes, it bit me off.

I then spent the rest of the day fishing for pike on similar structure--in fact, my next stop was a large rock out on the end of a point where I threw a spinner bait up near the rock and it was inhaled immediately by a large fish. When I got it up near the boat, I got real excited because it was huge. My excitement was short lived. It got away. I caught a bunch of pike that day as well as two good walleyes all on spinner baits, well away from weed beds.
