Saugeye on the Bighorn Lake

Carlo and i had a day off from the river and decided to take the Nitro bass boat up to Bighorn Lake.  Let's keep going, a little farther, one more bend.  After 35 miles up the canyon we decided to stop and start fishing.  We looked around and there was bait everywhere.  There were thousands of small emerald shiners swimming up to the surface getting chased by Small Mouth Bass, Walleye, Sauger; we didn't know.  Carlo had a great idea to wind drift the boat off of the point of the lake and start to jig.  About 30 minutes later on, during the second pass we started to get some bites. 

Here is  one of  the Saugeye we caught that day.  Saugeye are a walleye, sauger cross that is prevalent in the upper Bighorn Lake near the Wyoming border.

Trade Show Season Ends With Success

For the first time in six years, Bighorn River Lodge attended trade shows this winter.  From Somerset, NJ to Phoenix, AZ to Pasadena, CA and home to Montana, our team drove across the country shaking hands and handing out brochures.  We were proud to receive two "Best Booth" awards from the International Sportsmen's Expo in Phoenix and the NW Sportshow in Minneapolis, MN.  The shows gave us the chance to meet new anglers, book a few trips and promote our new Cast and Blast program starting in October 2012.  We all feel the shows were a successful endeavor and hope to attend a few again next winter.  

 

Thank you to Carlo Boshoff, Matt Clawson, Dell Despain, Ryan Kitts, and Cody Rolph who manned the booth at the shows.  A special thanks also to Flappy and Jack Baumgartner for the design and construction of the booth.  An especially big thank you to all of the trade show attendees who stopped by our booth to say hello.  See you on the water!
