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.
