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

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
