I watched a guy tipup fish where the creek that runs behind silver lake pool meets the zumbro. He had one in the mouth of the channel and one along the bank. He had two northerns on the ice. The one looked nice sized. Watch the ice over there. He said it gets real unstable fast.

No it was two three years ago. But I caught 3 northerns last spring on the creek that runs behind silver lake pool. They will swim up that stream in the spring at first ice out. I interned one year with the park and rec. I worked around Silver lake alot. So I picked up a few hot spots. Plus in front of the fire hall is really good. If you want to catch some huge white crappies east side of the walking bridge by the fire hall. cast out to the first support beam, there was some brush around it. Me and my buddy hit that four five times when fishing was slow. We caught alot of 10inchers. I was told of all sorts of holes. Plus what i,ve seen caught out of that lake. I seen a kid catch a 16 inch and 12 inch waleye below the dam. Seen guys catch catfish down there also. Theres is tons of fish around there it is a fun place to fish.

I have fished quite a bit below the dam and have done some carp fishing above the dam in the lake. But have never targeted the pike out there.

Yup sounds right you got to hit that creek at ice out the northern are all over in there. But they are not agressive at all you have to hit them in the nose to get them to bite. Seems weird catching northerns there but heck I've caught northerns out by Hayfeild, Simpson, and Rock Dell. So why not there.

Yeah, all the frozen sewage will float downstream before it can settle in the lake!!

I broke my voicebox yelling for joy when the Giants finally made that last field goal. I'll be hoarse tomorrow!

Let's hope little Bertie Favre retires and his last-ever play from scrimmage was the interception that cost them a Super Bowl berth.

Now we have to listen to months of him toying with people over whether he'll retire or not.

As to the thread topic, I thought the sewage plant was up by 37th St NW. Is there another one closer to Silver Lake that I'm not aware of??

Well I would have figured the sewage statement to be true if you where talking about lake zumbro plenty of sewage has flowed threw that channel.

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;
    • eyeguy 54
      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Why don't you take the free Dewalt I offered you....no more worries about not enough power...lol :-)
