34" Zumbro river northern...

9 posts in this topic

Last night around 6:00 I went down to the river and casted some bigger plugs, spoons and bucktails. This was a very healthy northern caught on a Hot Head. We were in the boat, and forgot the net. So we got over to the shore and I got of the boat. Then I got it in real quick. 40# power pro on a Garcia 5500c3. Measured along side the boat and snapped 3 quick photos and watched it swim away! grin.gif Sorry about the crappy photo. 35mm scanned. Poor foucus too.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
