Riverview report 1-17 to 1-21

1 post in this topic

Fished out in 34 fow and did ok overall- about 60 to 70 fish for our group of 12. Lots of dinkers, a 24.5" and a nice 27", and the rest were good 14" to 19" eaters.

All the walleyes came in suspended and were quick to bite the right jig- pink jiggin rap worked the best for our house. Good old gold spoon worked well on the first day. Very aggressive jigging was a must.

Saugers hit the dead sticks tight to the bottom with a plain red hook and a medium shiner, or a very small jig. Again a lot of dinkers, but a handfull of nice eaters. Add in a couple of pouts, whitefish and a full cooler of booze- good old time!

Drew and Susan did an awesome job taking care of our group over at riverview resort. Nice cabins, good food, stiff drinks, and a few great guides that new what they were talking about. Can't thank them enough, and looking forward to the next trip!

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
