RIVERBEND RESORT 3/16-3/17

8 posts in this topic

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

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
