Lake Zumbro Buzzbait Report

7 posts in this topic

I was out with a friend on Friday on Lake Zumbro. Using buzzbaits and the fish seemed to be liking it. All species as well. I got a 35" northern (CPR) and caught largies, smallies and white bass on it as well. The one smallie I had was 18", but no pic. The white bass hooked himself. Also, had a bunch of other swings and misses throughout the day. Had one fish miss 4 times on one retrieve and another miss 3 times! A good time and what a FUN WAY TO FISH!

Well, I have pics of the pike and a white bass, but can't get them to load...Let me know if you want to post them for me or tell me how to do it...I tried what the site said, to no avail.

Mskyf...,

Great multi species day. Topwater fishing is probably the most exciting way to catch fish. I never get tired of seeing those boils, swirls, and then areobatics. It's brings a new dimension of excitment to fishing.

Great report and sounds like some super nice fish. If you'd like me to post a pic and it's within the forum policy guidelines, simply attach it to an email to me and I'll get it posted ASAP.

Nice report. It's good to hear the Zumbro is still producing fish.

Didn't really fish for bass specifically, but did catch a few. All but one on that double bladed buzzbait. One I got on a tube. Probably got 3 LMB's, nothing over 14". One smallie I got was 18". Real nice smallie. And some white bass were chasing the buzzbait, kind of comical. I got the one smallie on a tube and he threw the tube and it was the only one I had. So, I think with more tubes a guy would have caught more if he would have fished that way.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
