How was the fishing?

7 posts in this topic

How was the fishing this weekend. Wife said I had to finish all the half started projects in the basement. So how was it Mostly wondering about Lake Zumbro, Chester, and Fosters. Gonna take a day or two off work and run around and do some fishing. Trying to figure out where I was going to spend my time.

I fished Foster's on Saturday from 10:30 to 4:45.

Missed a trout immediately when I dropped my first line in the water, then caught a 15-incher ten minutes later. Caught a 10" largemouth at 1:30 and another trout around 17" at 3:30.

Other than that, a lot of waiting and watching the flasher. I was marking lots of fish near the bottom. If I had dropped a jig and spikes down there I probably could have caught some gills or crappies too, but I mainly fish Foster's for trout action.

I talked to one other guy who fished with a buddy for a couple hours and he said all they caught was a smallmouth. They had a camera and he said they saw a lot of sniffers but no biters.

Never been there and from what I hear that lake gets enough action with out me dipping in the well. But mabey someday I'll venture out there for fun. But when it comes to panfish and I'm fishing for a limit. I like to do it out of bigger bodys of water where there is a larger population. But thats just me. Even though I'll keep a limit worth of crappies mabey twice all year. It's just how I am.

I was out at silver creek this morning.....not very fun. The whole resevoir was all ice, no snow on top. I set my small shack up and the wind immediately pick up and I was flying across the ice inside the shack...not very fun. I finally got it stabalized and put a line and my vexilar in the water, when the wind picked up and blew me away again. Hey keith where abouts do you fish at in the morning. I was out yesterday afternoon and caught one nice crappie towards the northeast side of the resevoir.

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
