Good bait and tackle are close by. Log Cabin Bait (one

minute from River Bend) is my choice. Bait and tackle

geared for LOW.

Our group is also staying at one of the sleepers with Riverbend the 10-13th. Maybe we'll see you there!

Log Cabin also comes in handy for beverage emergencies. smile.gif

Looks like this Log Cabin is the place to go. Thank for the info.

1 other question, staying in a resorts cabin how do you normally cook your fish? Do you guys normally pan fry them on your cabin's stove or do you bring you propane deep fryer? Is it normally to cold outside to deep fry some fish? Thanks for any info

Last two years we've fried em on the cabin stove (pan or small deep fry kettle) or just had the resort fry them up for us. Both are good options. This will be our first stay at Riverbend but I think I've heard they would fry some up for you as well.

Usually at the end of the day the resort will clean your fish for you and ask you how many you want returned to you that night to eat. Works out pretty slick and nothing is better than fresh walleye.

Riverbend does an awesome job with your fish, just let the guys know how many you want to eat and how many for travel. No need to worry about dragging all the extras along to cook them yourself, you won't be disappointed!

I'll third having the River Bend resort cook some of your fresh fish. My son and I did it last year and we can't wait to do it again after Xmas this year.

Riverbend does a great job on preparing your fish. As mentioned tell the guides when they are cleaning them how many you want for the meal and any extra they will shrink wrap for travel. Put a dinner salad, and some german potato salad on the table with those fish and oh man, it don't get much better than that. Let them do the cookin' gives you more time for a cold one in the resturant. it beats bringing all the extras along to do it yourself. Don't forget to keep some eel pout. They will boil these up and provide some melted butter, a great hors duvoure.. I know its not spelled right grin.gif Good luck and hang on. Bill

Best bait tip I can give is "mix it up".

I've seen the bait preference change from day to day and even hour to hour. A total shiner bite may change to total fathead, jigging spoon to dead stick, back hooked to lip hooked, yadda, yadda, yadda.......

My catch phrase is: "Don't stop 5 bucks from a good fishing trip"!

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
