Fished River Bend Yesterday!!!

Recommended Posts

Sprinter

3 Of us fished out of River Bend Resort yesterday so here is a quick report.

Started off a little slow for the first couple hours so we changed depth around 11 and it got a lot better. It was not fast and furious but there were enough fish to keep u interested. Not many small fish at all(probably 5-6 scuds all day), The rest of the fish were in the 15-19 inch range so they were very nice fish. Moved shallow for a night run in search of the ever elusive "pig" but to no avail. We did get the rest of our limit though. 3 guys; 12 eyes, 6 saugs, 1 jumbo, biggest on day was 19 smallest about 15, and one of the saugs was 18".

River Bend did a great job of doing everything possible to put us on the fish, they are great people, so a big "thank you" to them!!! wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

Sprinter: Thanks for posting your results. Sounds like a good day. Were you over Pine? IN your houses or Riverbends? Headed that way in a couple of weeks. Bill

Bill, Yeah we were over pine in River Bends houses. 23 fow was the best for us but I'm sure that will change quickly after the weekend traffic. There is already a ton of houses out there. What was nice about River Bend is there houses are spread out over a large area so we had some depth options. They were nice enough to get us into 3 different houses so we got to do a little scouting. Ice conditions were really good too. The thinnest was about 8-9 inches of good rock hard clear/blue ice.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.
