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.

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
