River Fishing

13 posts in this topic

I am heading up to LOW this weekend and have never fished there in the fall before. We are staying at Riverbend and I was wondering where to start in the river. I was hoping for as little travel as possible, but am open to anything. Any advise would be great.

It looks like FM faithful will own the River Bend this

weekend. See you all at breakfast.

The river fishing is very easy, it requires some patience.

If your watch other boats you will find that they are

every where. If you try to anchor on the edge of the river

channel so you swing back and forth over a couple of foot

difference in depth that is what most will be doing.

You will not have to travel far. Bring warm clothes.

And have a good anchor. On the river a good anchor is

a sea spike style anchor. Most other anchors will not

hold you and that can ruin your weekend in a hurry.

Make sure your rope is long enough as well. I think the formula is that you need like 3 times the depth of the water to set an anchor to hold well.

My dad bought and used a substandard anchor last weekend in his boat. I should say he attempted to use a substandard anchor last weekend. He had to reset about 50 times. He did have plenty of rope length.

I'll be up at Adrian's this weekend in my boat with my dad, and step mom. Black and Tan Alumacraft TS185.

Curt,

Do I need to bring my goggles for breakfast? I've heard the toast can be flying pretty good.

You should see what happens when he attacks the pancakes and hash browns!

Sometimes you have to let a guy have his space. grin.gif

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
