River Bend Resort

River Bend is a family-owned and operated Lake of the Woods resort that offers 14 cabins, RV and tent sites, a new lodge, a restaurant, and a bar. From charter boats during the open water season, to heated ice houses for the hard water, they have you covered! Comfortable accomodations and they always make sure you're on the fish. By far my FAVORITE place to stay when fishing Lake of the Woods or the Rainy River.


St. Croix Avid Series Spinning Rod

My go-to walleye rod. The Avid Series St. Croix spinning rod is crafted with premium, high-modulus SCIII carbon with FRS and Integrated Poly Curve® (IPC®) mandrel technology for superior strength and sensitivity. Technologies like the Fortified Resin System (FRS) and Taper Enhancement Technology (TET) give you better action and improved sensitivity. From jig and plastics, hair jigs and blade baits, to bait rigging, lipless cranks, jigging raps, crankbaits and more, there is a technique-specific walleye rod for any application.


Grab My Favorites

If you're looking for my favorite rod rigging gear, line, and tackle for fall walleye, it's all easy to grab from my shop page at Outdoor America. You can snap up some of my top favorites including:

  • Pflueger President Spinning Reels

In fact, there aren’t many better places to be than Rainy River when you are looking for that incredible fall walleye bite. The best part of all is that the fishing pressure is low, fish are on the move, and all you have to do is show up.
