I managed a little over an hour today fishing part of the Root. In search of sauger, stage remains in favor of smallies. They were grabbing every color ringie I tossed. (6-7 different color/patterns)

With a real impressive age class represented, most of the smallies were in the 14-16 inch range. Lotso fun with an ultralight set up.

Usually I get a bonus specie while fishing the Root or Zumbro. I was not let down today. I caught a hungry 18-19 inch (hook jawed) browner on an organge, orange flecked ringworm.....go figure.

Well, back to dreaming about my next short outing.

Nice report Jim. Not bad for just a short amount of time. That Root River is such a unique and diverse body of water.

Humm... Tossing ringies in the Root. OK, I'll be bringing that bag next time I head that direction.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
