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!

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
