River Update 8/3

3 posts in this topic

Went out around 7:00 and the weather was great. Nice to actualy pay attention to fishing rather than sweating. Water up of course and cooler. Fish were more active and saw a lot of jumping going on. Ended up with 24 strikes total. Smaller fish same 12-15 inch might of had a bigger one one but did not make it to shore. Stayed till 9:30 and the fish were all over the shoreline coming back. A lot of times once the top water bait hit the water they hit on contact. I take pics of all the fish that actually make it to the shoreline so give me your e-mails and I can send them. All C&R!

Three of us out today, fishing out of a riverpro. We heard some ticking sounds a couple of times but made it upriver unscathed. Good day boating 51. A 19 1/4 and 19 3/4 were big smallies, two walleyes with an 8 lb tops.

      Not a good sign when the thumb doesn't fit in the mouth.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
