Riverbend report for 3/2/08 - 3/4/08

5 posts in this topic

Fished on March 3rd and 4th with my usuall group, 17 guys total, 4 houses. We all ended up taking home our limits of walleye and saugers, plus a few bonus perch. 10 of us also had a fish fry one day. We ended up fishing approx. 22 miles out, 1 1/2 hour ride in the bomber. Best color option monday was jigging an orange jig, or a pink jig dead sticking. On tuesday the best was a red and gold jig. Largest fish was a 21", which was photoed and released. Average size walley was around 16", saugers were a little smaller coming in around 14". Only problems of the trip we had was one bomber broke down about 7 miles out and one house ran out of gas for the heater tuesday morning around 9:30, guides never came back to check on till around noon and wanted us to pack it up and move. The guys in it didn't want to move so they ended up stealing a tank from another one of there houses. That house was hot and they caught 62 fish.

What time did you go out in the morning and come back in the afternoon at Riverbend? Did you fish that far out both days? I am heading up there on Sunday.

They mentioned we could drive out possibly and fish longer, was that an option for you guys?

Thanks!

We left the resort around 7, fished till 4. Yes we were out that far both days. I know they have houses in closer but we opted to go for the ride.

kb: thanks for the report, sounds like things were pretty good for you out there. Not sure what the story was on the gas etc. I would have called back to the resort on the cell phone and had Judy or Charlie get somebody on the ball. Maybe there is another reason, it had better be a good one though!!!!! Bill

We ended up leaving the phones in the cabin, one less thing to drop down a hole. The guides that were out there were fishing and moving houses but they were about a 1/2 mile away. Really didn't want to go for a walk.

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
