River Bend Report 1/12 - 1/14

Recommended Posts

Fished out of River Bend Rental Houses on Thursday afternoon and full days Friday and Saturday. Fished in 31' for the most part with very limited success, more Walleyes than Saugers, moved up into 16' for Friday evening bite with no success. We used shiners and fatheads, set lines with Red hooks were best, Northland Gold & Yellow Gold jigs were the best producers for jigging and we used Shiners and Fatheads with the same results. Four guys brought home 14 total fish with about the same released including a twenty five incher. The bomber drivers were great and moved us around to try to get us on fish, food was good and my compliments to the new owners and friendly staff, they made the trip an enjoyable time!

Thanks for the report, glad the guides and food were great.

Maybe the fish will turn on soon!

Is Glen still involved in the guiding up there? Darn nice guy. I think I have been banned from his snow machines. In four trips up there, I have been stranded 3 times with mechanical break downs, the last being in that big silver machine. Some friends are headed up there the first week in March to give it a shot, hopefully they will have better luck than has been reported.

SFBoy: Yes Glenn and Pam are still at the resort and will be there for some time during the transition. I talked to Glenn on Monday when we arrived. For more info check my report dated 1/16=1/8. Bill

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
