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!!

On a side note. How about them Packers.

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.

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
    • curt quesnell
      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
