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!

Schwanny: thanks for the report, sounds like a good trip and lots of action. Were you out over Pine or all the way up to the Islands? Bill

We were up by bridges in some of the first houses you come up on. The first day we were in 29ft and the second day we were in 32 ft.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
