Question on Four-Mile Bay?

5 posts in this topic

When do you guys see the bay opening up? We have our sturgeon fishing trip planned for April 14th. Will we be able to fish there in the boat or will we be S.O.L. and have to fish the river?

Thanks ahead for any guesses or suggestions.

Hey Leech,

Don't sweat it to much. There will be a place to fish. Just keep an eye on the lake & the river forums and you should be able to follow the thaw.

We have all been way off on predictions this year & I think every one is a bit gun-shy of even making a guess. Have heard that the Gap is already open and there is a truck down in 4-mile bay but haven't seen it my self.

Did go up to Birchdale tonight and it should be open Sun. or Mon. & I think the rest will..... no, I'm not going to say it.

Ok Leech here's some help, I hope.

Your date is just too close to the wire. Maybe, maybe not.

Nobodys is answering because nobody knows. The next weekend

ought to be ok (ought to) the following weekend even better.

You will have river spots to fish for sure but the bay isnt

something you can bank on the first half of April.

I hope it works out for you but next time come a week or

two later for better odds. The FM Sturgeon Excursion is

April 20th and this time of the year a week can make a

big difference.

Good Luck

      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.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
