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 belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
