Riverbend Report 3/3 - 3/4

6 posts in this topic

As promised, here is the report for March 3rd & 4th. The snow storm held us back a couple of days and Judy was able to accomodate us. Thanks you very much Judy! We had a group of 6 (2 guys and 4 women) and the fishing started off really well. The first fish out of my hole was a nice fat 26" followed by a nice 22" (red buckshot)(both released of course). My wife and my mother were busy catching supper. The action would slow down and then pick up again. The other housed released a 24" (red buckshot). The fishing was a little slow, but when we were done we had plenty to bring home. We also ate one meal after the first day. Most fish came off of a red buckshot, red plain hook, red doodlebug, and gold lead head jig. We fished in about 30ft of water. We had a great time!

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
