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.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
