How high's the water mamma?

10 posts in this topic

So how is everyone doing with all of this rain? Anyone having any flooding problems? I just took a drive around Rochester and there are quite a few spots that look bad. Sounds like it is much worse to the east of here. Looks like fishing will be out of the question for a while eh...?

I grew up by Lewiston and checked with my parents and they said they got 17"!!! They have one of those digital rain gauges. They have 3 inches of water in their lower basement, but they're not complaining too much because there are people who have it a lot worse and there are also 6 confirmed deaths due to this flooding.

I also have a cousin that lives in Goodview and he had about 2 feet of water on the main floor of his house as well as a basement full of water.

My thoughts and prayers to those who lost a loved one to this disaster.

Johnny Cash says it's flying through the Falls and Hammond.

Spent the day in Hammond moving stuff to higher ground. I made a trip to Ponderosa, Macs, The Green Bridge, The Falls and Hammond. Yikes!

The Zumbro goes through our back yard. We are up on a small cliff. The river was way out of its banks last night behind our place and about seven or eight feet up the cliff. The water was over some of the roads west of Mantorville.

When we go out on the deck it sounds like a train roaring through the trees below.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on 
    • Big A
      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
