I may show up, but I don't think I'll be competing. I'll have a couple 5yr. olds in tow and one of them has never fished before.

My directions may be a bit messed up, but isn't the fire station on the West side of Silver Lake? I won't be able to make it, but want to make sure those that do go to the right spot.

Thanks Andy,

Your right. I've made the change above.

We will meet in the park where the goose feeders are on the West side of the lake at 7:45. After that, everybody is free to take off and go to their "hot spot". Weigh-ins will be at the same place as registration.

My 2.13lb carp took big fish as well.

I think Dan-o has to be the hands down favorite tonight. I saw him Sat. driving up and down between Hammond and Zum. Falls scouting.

Word of advice for folks...with all the high water the banks can be kinda dicey so be careful when getting close to land fish. Long handled nets are recommended and maybe even waders could be used. My bets are that somebody comes back either real wet or real muddy.

All I was doing was making room for more people. Clearing brush and picking up garbage. The one place I have in mind we call the Long Hole. It will accomodate 6-8 people pretty easy. You guys are welcome to toss a line in up there with me if ya want.

Sounds like a great place to start. I'll likely join you.

Yep, Dan has to be a favorite for this event. He spends lots of time on the ZR and knows it well. Plus he nearly lives right on it, so that helps.

Been there, done both. I've got the long handled net loaded.

Hi Guys,

How did things go last night? I was unable to make it but might try that stretch of the Zumbro this weekend for some rough fish fun. Any bait / techniques work better than others? Thanks.

Well, Tyler should have the results up soon but from what I can recall there were about 10 people maybe a few more than that. The biggest was a 4.6 something and it wasn't by me. I caught at least a dozen but nothing over 3.5 so I never even got to place.

Good times though. Tylers net was funny, Droid going skunkie for most the night, and then some kid getting into the double digits and winds up winning it. Way to go Alex! laugh.gif

Techniches, a crawler on a baitholder #4 with a sliding sinker stopped at about 18" up. Current seams worked the best. Just on the edges of the calm pool and current edge.

Good times! Fished w/ three buddies, and I think we landed 16 fish w/ most over 3lbs. I personally caught a couple in the twelve inch range that made me wish I had my cooler. I've been wanting to try and smoke some (in the smoker) and I wanted to slice a couple up for cut bait. Thanks Tyler! Looking forward to the Root River event. I've never fished it so it'll be a good time.

UPLR Pictures and Results

Or next event is Monday April 16th at Lake Zumbro. This will be our first open water event on the Zumbro and they are calling for 51 degree's high temp. Sounds like a nice day in the boat to me.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.  
    • ZachD
      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
