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.

I saw some people fishing from shore at foster today. Looked like they were casting from the beach area. Lots of open water there.

I'll work on posting the results tonight. I was fortunate enough to grab the first place winnings with 4 crapps (2 white, 2 black) and 4 sunfish.

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.

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.

      Fished long point sat/sun morning... It was bad.  Had some friends fishing out of Borderview it was slow over there as well.  Tried all the colors.  Not very aggressive on the ones we did catch.  Had heard fishing was good of course on the days before sat.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft
