RainyDaze Guide Service Captains have a true love and passion for fishing. They have been fishing and hunting all of their lives, and this team has quickly become one of the most sought after guide services in Minnesota. RainyDaze Guide service is continuously featured on several television shows each season as well as print publications such as In Fisherman, Outdoor Life, Target Walleye, The Outdoor News, Ice Fishing Magazine and Outdoors Weekly. RainyDaze Guide service owner Captain Chris Granrud publishes articles on Monster Pike, Bruiser Walleye and Slab Crappies! Spending just a day with RainyDaze guide service will increase your success rates while fishing Rainy Lake for the remainder of your vacation, and the knowledge gained will last the rest of your fishing career. Beyond the fishing it is very likely you will solve several of the worlds problems while relaxing in their premium glass boats!  The RainyDaze team is well known for uncovering hidden patterns on some of Rainy Lakes biggest and baddest fish. As Chris would put it himself “We’ll let other fisherman specialize in small fish……..We’re chasing the BIG GIRLS!!”  Many customers also enjoy the knowledge gained while fishing with the Captains during the course of a day.  “Personally I feel anglers gain more useful information from us if the fishing is tough.”  “Under tough conditions clients can see how you breakdown the water, and change tactics to try uncover the secrets of the day.”


A trip with a professional fishing guide like a RainyDaze Captain is an experience that no angler should miss. All 10 Licensed Captains have big personal followings and are truly gifted angler’s. Rainy Lake is a top fishing destination as it offers outstanding multi-species fishing and breathtaking scenery. There are few bodies of water with trophy fish like the mighty Rainy Lake and the Rainy River, yet these are vast bodies of water that also have a lot of “Dead Water”.  The ability of an angler to quickly eliminate the water that holds few fish and get on top of the “Big fish” pattern is critical for overall success. Whether you’re looking to chase Walleye, Crappie, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike or Musky, Rainy is your lake. Book your next trip with a RainyDaze captain, and you’re sure to learn the latest and most successful fishing techniques while enjoying a great time on these pristine border waters.
