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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
