What time of year are you looking at going there? What species? There are a wide variety of fish in there.

But consider this....It is the only lake in the area where motorboats are allowed. Rochester is 15 minutes away, so there is a large population of people with 1 lake to go to. The Zumbro!

Fishing can be very good there at all times of the year. But, you will have to work around the traffic.

Weekends for me are a no-no. You have no chance at all, maybe the first hour-two of light. After that it is full of pleasure boaters. The lake is long and narrow and people take advantage of that. All the way down the lake and then all the way back up the lake! Some weekdays are the same way.

If you want to know more on it, there is a lot of info. posted on it in the Rochester forum.

Good luck!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
