Ikeslayer,

Mac's may be closed to parking, but is the water closed to fishing???

I fished from the green bridge up to the plunge pool on Sunday. I tossed jigs and plastics for smallmouth and sauger, and husky jerks and smithwicks for exox, and didn't even get a bite. I've fished this stretch since I was a kid with my Grandfather in the 60's, and I'd like to think I know it well enough to find the fish. Yesterdays water was low and clear, but something is up with that stretch ~ it's really changed in the last 5-years (about the time the zebras were introduced). I find some fish in the summer months, but not like it used to be. No more 50 fish outings on the tail waters. I miss it.

Anyone have a theory?

yeah i know that you can't get into macs anymore and that is a shame however there are some alternate routes of getting down there and i was wondering if anyone had been down there lately. i am looking to do a blast and cast trip where the rod is in hand and the gun is accross the lap for ducks and geese. Wondering if anyone has had any luck in the area. Goody it sounds like that was rough. I don't know what i would have done differently. best wishes to all and let me know if you have any hints. ike

Ikeslayer,

Spoke to a man last night that knows the zumbro better then the back of his hand, and he still has great outings on that stretch of water from Macs on down ~ as recent as last week. Could have been the cold front or the pace I was working upstream to cover the miles. Probably a combination of the two. Go for it, work the deeper water slowly, and best of luck. Post a report if you are inclined.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
