Recommended Posts

I heard that Riverbend has a new owner? I hope they keep it the same way. Anyone have any info on this?

Yes, there are new owners, but Glen V. is still on staff. They are promising the same great service and food!

Coach: There are new owners his name is Charley. I believe but don't quote me his wifes name is Judy???

I talked to Charlie about two weeks ago to verify my 4 reservations through Mar 06. He seemed very personable and willing to provide service. Glenn and Pam will be there during the transition, possible for two years. I know that Glenn told me last year that was his intent if he sold. Hopefully everything will stay the same. Richard is gone however and I am going to miss his dry sense of humor, lots of good times with him the past 6 years. Good luck and hold onto your rod. Bill

Charlie and Judy Kasberger and sons Max and Wilson.

Same staff in the bar and kitchen, Glen is still there.

They are expanding the ice fishing by adding some sleepers.

Charlie is a pretty sharp guy, I think he might know at

least a little bit about everything. If you could have

seen him on the 4 Wheeler last weekend riding herd on the

transporting of fishermen and fish houses to and from the

lake and seen the smile on his face you would like the

guy. Maybe it was because he loves fishing and working

on the ice or maybe it was because the deposits were gonna

get bigger in a hurry......maybe both.

I think River Bend will be just fine.

Ice: Ken-Mar-Kee is the place for the place for Toco's on Fridays.. Good bar there to.. They are just down County 8 from 172, on the left side of the road going west, at Bostic Bay. I believe it starts at 5:30 or 6:00... smile.gifKaz

Curt: Thanks for the update. Does Charlie have a background in the fishing or resort business? When I talked to him I thought I detected just a hint of Canada 'eh? I'm looking forward to meeting him, his wife and the boys. Bill

Bill,

Both Charlie and Judy worked for a major airline.

They built a house over at Zipple a few years ago and

commuted from there. Finally they decided to abandon

that rat race and make their future in the resort biz

Charlie is good friends with a couple of my good friends and they both vouch for him. I would expect River Bend to stay a very class operation.

Curt: Thanks. I'm sure there is stress in the resort business, but the way the airlines are going today at least now they can control thier own stress. Looking forward to meeting them.

Fivebucks: Thanks to you also. Bill

Thanks for all of the replies, it sounds very promising that River Bend will still be the old River Bend.

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.

    • CigarGuy

      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay 
    • SkunkedAgain
      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar.
