RAINY RIVE IN MARCH

4 posts in this topic

JUST WONDERING IF ANY ONE HAS GONE AND DONE ANY LATE ICE FISHING OUT ON THE RIVER BETWEEN MARCH AND APRIL. I'M CURIOUS IF PEOPLE ARE GOING UP THE TO FISH THE RIVER OUT IN FRONT OF ALL THE LODGES OR GETTING ON SLEDS AND HEADING OUT TO THE LAKE. MAINLY HOW TO FISH THE AREA AT THIS TIME OF YEAR.

Yes, April is ridiculous on the river (there are stretches where you can literally walk boat to boat), but the action is undeniable. You have a legitimate shot at an 8, 10, or even bigger 'eye, and you should be boating 50-100 fish a day or you're fishing the wrong day!

The sturgeon action can be awesome, too, but if you hook into a 50-60" on light line, you might as well pitch a tent... Plan on anchoring and vertical jigging with 1/2 to 3/4 oz jigs, heavier at times depending on the current, and use chubs or shiners--either one works as well as the other when the fish are feeding as voraciously as they do this time of year, so save a buck and get the chubs. The landings are a nightmare of impatient, fisherman trying to land their boats, but the rewards are worth the hassle. Plan on wrapping up a hour or more before dark, though, or you'll never beat daylight trying to load up in that circus...

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
