Fished River Bend Yesterday!!!

6 posts in this topic

3 Of us fished out of River Bend Resort yesterday so here is a quick report.

Started off a little slow for the first couple hours so we changed depth around 11 and it got a lot better. It was not fast and furious but there were enough fish to keep u interested. Not many small fish at all(probably 5-6 scuds all day), The rest of the fish were in the 15-19 inch range so they were very nice fish. Moved shallow for a night run in search of the ever elusive "pig" but to no avail. We did get the rest of our limit though. 3 guys; 12 eyes, 6 saugs, 1 jumbo, biggest on day was 19 smallest about 15, and one of the saugs was 18".

River Bend did a great job of doing everything possible to put us on the fish, they are great people, so a big "thank you" to them!!! wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

Sprinter: Thanks for posting your results. Sounds like a good day. Were you over Pine? IN your houses or Riverbends? Headed that way in a couple of weeks. Bill

Bill, Yeah we were over pine in River Bends houses. 23 fow was the best for us but I'm sure that will change quickly after the weekend traffic. There is already a ton of houses out there. What was nice about River Bend is there houses are spread out over a large area so we had some depth options. They were nice enough to get us into 3 different houses so we got to do a little scouting. Ice conditions were really good too. The thinnest was about 8-9 inches of good rock hard clear/blue ice.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
