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...

    • I've been using paddle tails and twister tail grubs as trailers this summer. I wish more companies made bladed baits, but I've just been buying Z-Mans because of the availability and price. 
    • cool story! I hope you get another crack at it next year!
    • When I had my internet service through the phone company it would go kaflooey every fall.  The guys would come out and clear out the mouse nests in the junction box out front.  The house was built in 65 and the phone line is underground.  One guy spent a lot of time out here and finally concluded that the underground line was shot and it would require mega screwing around to replace it.  He then came into the house and said that the phone lines run throughout the house were also shot and would have to be redone.  I switched to getting service from the cable company rather than having to spend so much to get things squared away.
    • Exactly! I love how people claim a candidate they have been backing won. As if there is any objective value in their opinion. Like I said before, the bar for POTUS is so low right now the best argument either side has is "your candidate is worse"
    • I agree with Mike#1
    • The polls are deceiving. The cattle, if they actually vote, are not the pollster types. Upper white collar, college stus and politely active are. Like my mother and family down in Florida.  Not online pollsters, not on a call list, don't answer phone after 7 because there is work tomorrow. My mother never votes. Good person but that old school soft racism which is never in play except the last year with all the tension going on. Hates Obama and sees Hillary as an extension of him. Point is, there is a possiblity, what I see on personal media, a lot who wouldn't vote, don't take polls, don't participate politically, have a strong side for Trump.  50/50 at best if they'll vote though. To be fair, I see the Bern crowd, huffing and puffing but more to the effect of what a joke trump is and seems a Democrat vote.    
    • We should probably learn to live on this planet before we mess up another one. Luckily our scientist lack the imagination to get us off this rock.
    • I may have missed it, but I don't believe they even discussed The Wall....
    • I was having issues with my ISP service recently same symptoms. I work from home and it kept randomly dropping and just got worse and worse. They sent a tech out and he redid all the cable terminations and also switched out some connection in the cable underground and he said they can go bad over time and I haven't had any issues since. They should be able to measure signal strength and know right away when they are onsite if you have any issues.
