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

2 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.

Which bomber was it. The Yellow one kept overheating on us and had to stop like 5 times on the way in. The white one seemed to have fuel problems and kept dying and had to be restarted then it busted something in one of the skis and they had to get parts for it. The silver one seemed to be the best of the four.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
