MURPHFISHER

Lousy weather

5 posts in this topic

After the flurry of roughfish activity last week for my first outing of the year, I have been dying to get out every day after work. With this lovely rain and 30's in the forecast for lows tonight I am concerned how this will affect the bountiful sucker fishing Dan and I experienced last week. I sure hope they are still cooperating. Any idea if the rain/cold will affect the spawning suckers? Does anyone even care about suckers? LOL!

I am planning another outing Wed and/or Thurs on the Zumbro river near Hammond and hoped the fishing would be as good or better. Caught some very nice fish last Friday. At one point 3 suckers all over 20 inches in a 10 minute span including a 2 footer. I will post a follow up on how I do.

Murph....Doubtful that the weather will be bad enought to squash your fishing. We'd need an awful lot of rainfall to hurt you and the cold air at night has less of an effect on the fish in a river system than if you were in a creek or a pond....even a lake. Go get'um.

If all a guy does is catch and release, what does it matter what kind of fish you catch. I think a good size Red Horse can be as exciting of a fight as any Waldo. And some of those Whites can be very strong.

Anybody else like Sucker fishing? Come on don't be shy. The first step is admitting it.

Where is a good place to go? Might be a good possibility to take some family for some sucker fishing. What kind of set up do you need? I remember rough fish fishing back home on the Wisconsin River. Nothing like fighting a carp on an ultra light set up.Thanks.

I caught a redhorse while trout fishing a few weeks back and it put up a great fight!

A few corn flies might be in order this season, just to have a good time fighting some of those big ugly fish. cool.gif

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
