RIVERBEND RESORT 3/16-3/17

Recommended Posts

Well went up to Riverbend Resort and fished the reef 22.5 miles out. we had two house between 6 of us. the first day was a little slow, we got between 35-45 fish on the first day. nothin real big just a bunch of nice eaters, and a few jumbo perch. on the second day they moved us to some better water. as soon as we got to the house it was fish on. my house did the the best, it was non stop action, all the fish were over 14". my buddy did get a 29.5" eye and 10 mins later a 38" pike. same hole same jig. the eye was the fattest 29.5 i have ever seen. we were fishing in 26-32ft of water. glow white and gold jigs where the best with shinners. it was a all around good trip. the resort cleaned up the guides from last year and what a bunch of great guys this year. if it wasnt for Big Al and his tips for us we would of never done that good. i will get some pics up for u guys.

Beav: Thanks for the report. I'm headed back on Wed afternoon for the 4th, and last, trip for this year. Sounds like the fish are on. Big Al....what a character...he can definitley make for a fun day. Did he tell you the story about the shark when he was guiding in Hawaii? If not be sure to ask him next time you're up.

Nice Pics, thanks for posting.

New Yankee: I thought by now you were far enough up the food chain, where you could kind of set your own schedule LOL...14 more months for me and then maybe 8-9 times a year. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Bob, yes it will be nice not to have to be somewhere every morning. I'll still come back to the agency a couple of days a week to work with the new buyer (my secretary) but I can get lots of fishing in in 5 days per week. Bill

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
    • side_laker
      Thinking about bring my wheelhouse up there tomorrow far a day of fishing and spend the night any new reports 
    • tview
      Was on green Thurs night was able to find a few fish in 24ft between 4:30 and 7:00  bite was OK we ending up keeping about 10 nice eaters. heading back out today

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff
    • AlwaysFishing23
      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.
    • james_walleye
      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long. 
    • Mielkez
      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks. 
    • Rick G
      Pretty sure you DON'T know where this one is.... I see you creeping around, looking for my spots...lol
