Location of Taylors Cove

Taylor's Cove Bear Pass Bridge at Bears Passage

As seen on Google Earth, Bears Passage flows between Swell Bay on the south, and RedGut Bay to the north.   The bridge above is HiWay 11 that passes acrross Bears Passage and is visible from Taylor's Cove Camp.   Drive or fly to International Falls, MN and cross the border to Canada there into Fort Frances.   Follow HiWay 11 east out of Fort Frances for about 35 minutes.  You pass by the HiWay that goes north to Dryden and then travel just a few more minutes.  Just before you pass over the bridge of Bear Passage you will see Ed's sign:  Taylors Cove, with a fish on it.  Turn left and follow the narrow lane for about 1/2 mile and you are there.  Shown on the map below with a yellow thumb tack.

There is plenty of dock space for your own boat or for a rental boat.  PFT first trip to Taylor's Cove was in 1999, and the AABF was begun!  The members of this trip were fathers, sons, and in laws.  There was an 80 year old dad, his son, and his son!  They also had with them a future brother - in - law to the youngest son.  There were two more fathers with their sons, and a father in law to one of the sons. What a grand time was had, creating memories that are still talked about to this day.

 Note the  boat on the left of this picture.  Ed loved this boat!  A 1970 fiberglass, inboard motor with a jet drive, it never passed a gas tank it did not love.  With a 455 cubic inch oldsmobile engine, it made quite the "rumble" whenever it started up.  Ed put 20 gallons in the tank every morning.  Click on this link to read more about Team AABF.

Rainy Lake Walleye

Enjoy many more pictures of Rainy Lake Walleye on our page: Walleye Pictures. The majority of those shown were caught over the 10 years we made a trip to Taylors Cove. It was these walleye that created a lot of memories, tasty shore lunches - and developed the joy and anticipation of taking an annual Walleye Fishing Trip

It seems at least one fish like this is caught on each trip to Rainy Lake. Not guaranteed, but Rainy Lake has many large pike. Close encounters are common as well where either pike or muskie will T-Bone a fish you are reeling in.
