RiverBend Report 10-14jan

1 post in this topic

Group of 5 guys came up from chicago and missouri. My missouri friends and I had a 17 hour total drive to get up to the low. Well all I can say was it was well worth it! We stayed out of RiverBend resort and what a great resort good people great place. Are group got to drive out to are 2 day houses fri sat sun with the big fish comming on Sat a 24 incher we came close to limits on all days with a lot of 15-16 inch sauger mixed in with some nice 16 inch eyes all caught in 30 foot water. Sun they put us out deeper didnt see any houses past us caught a nice 19 inch eye followed by a lot of suspended eyes 12-15 inchers through out the day. All the guys came close to there limits a lot of saugers big 16-17 inchers. Most fish came off the bottom with a neon red hook, saturdays big fish was caught on plain red hook most of them with bobbers, gold rocker jig worked good for the dead stick. All the suspened eyes where caught on gold angel eye are perch rattln varmits, shinners on the jigs chubs on the bobbers and plain hooks. We guess we had about 60 total fish including the throw backs for the 3 days. We where told at times fishing was slow and we where doing the best, we couldnt figure out if they tell that to everybody. Not bad though for 5 newbies to low. You guys have a great lake and we look forward to comming back!

      Just wondering if there was any new info/topic on upper red?

      There is about a million skid houses for sale around the lake that you may get pretty good deals on if you don't want to go through all the work.

      10/23/16     Central MN      Cold front last week and again this morning brought new ducks into central MN. Mainly observed migrating flocks of ringnecks, wigeon, gadwalls, canvasbacks, and mallards--calendar migrators from ND and southern Canada most likely. Had a few good days of duck hunting from a boat on a couple mid-sized shallow lakes. It is that time of the year for calendar migrators. Any time you can get out over the next couple weeks during or the day after a strong west or NW wind, or the day after a cold, clear night with a light westerly wind go for it. Soon these ducks will blow through and we will be waiting for the hardy Canadian ducks that stay just south of the snow and ice line. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Brian, That certainly can not be a good thing for Vermilion! I have not seen it that bad on Big Bay yet. Cliff

      I was back up to morris yesterday oct 22 fished afternoon for about 3 hrs. in 17 to 19 feet caught about 25 walleye and sauger mix average size about 10 in. only 2 keepers. Lots of boats everyone was catching fish. I'm guessing I missed as many as I caught. Stinger saved the day!
