Lake Zumbro

3 posts in this topic

I am relatively new to the area and am going to put a house out on Zumbro. I am not looking to get any secret spots but could use a little help in the area of my placement maybe even targeting. I have a spearhouse but I would rather catch fish... I have heard about pulling cats through the ice but have never been in an area where we had cats. I fish alot of pans in central Mn and am curious as to what the outlook is for them on Zumbro. ANY help is greatly appreciated.Thanks.

you'll find most of the perms lined up along the highbanks area on the zumbro, its a large area of the lake with a steep dropoff,its usually a great area to find winter crappies and bluegills, soon as people start putting there shacks on the ice you'll know where it is

hard-water,

I really don't think there are any secret spots on the zumbro atop the hard water. There gets to be a bunch of perm shacks along the high banks area and in that general area of the lake (middle (deep water)).

As for the cats, keep up to speed in this forum and you'll get some information. I plan to put a cat attack on as soon as there is safe ice on the Zumbro.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
