Lost rod

3 posts in this topic

I was out fishing on Lake Zumbro and one of my rods seemed to have dropped out of my sled. It was a nice-n-easy rod. If someone picked it up, give me a note. I would be happy to pick it up pretty much anywhere.

Thanks

Sorry about the rod. I was on Lake Zumbro today as well, but didn't see it. I have one of those Ice-n-easy rods. They serve as a good deadstick.

I was south of the Ponderosa and around the bend, set up right near the bank in 15 fow. Only saw one fish on the flasher in an hour and a half and it ignored my offerings, so I moved on to greener pastures.

Did you have any luck fishing there and if so, any tips for a newbie to the Lake Zumbro ice? A basic idea of where to go, etc? All the shacks I saw were tight to the banks on the outside of the bend south of Pondy. Several people were driving cars and small pickups out there too, but I only had 6-7" of ice where I set up.

I walked on at Ryan's Bay and walked out to Rattle Snake. Fished in 23 or 24 ft of water. I had a lot of lookers but no takers. I know one guy close to me had a few crappies on the ice. He said he was using diamond jigs and spikes, about 3 to 5 ft off the bottom. He was also in 23 or 24 ft of water. By the way I also was a newbie though the ice on the Zumbro.

Good luck on further outings. Remeber the more you try the better you will become.

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
