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

Recommended Posts

kb1965

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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
