Round 2 – Zumbro Report (3/29/07) (4 pics)

8 posts in this topic

The crappy weather took a evening off last night so Andy, Shane and I enjoyed it on the water. Temps in the mid to upper 50s were welcomed. We had the whole lake to ourselves. We saw 1 boat loading, just as we were unloading.

Now to the fishing. We didn’t put-up huge numbers, but I wouldn’t say we had a bad day either. Maybe tough is a better word.

The fish we found tended to be towards the bottom of water column. The spot that produced best for us, was in 7-9FOW. The fish bit timidly tonight. About all you got was a slowly sinking cork. A few fish were takin via the freeline method as well. There really wasn’t a standout method that worked best, but we kept changing it up and took a few fish with a variety of methods and baits.

Again, today was all plastics. We didn’t even open the bait well. Twister tails, Exude Micro-Shads, and Culprit paddletails all caught fish.

Only 1 bluegill today in the 7.5” range.

All fish from today are still swimming and growing!

Nobody even mentioned my black eye in the bottom pic. Caring bunch... J/K it's just the photo.

Wonder if those buggers will bite in the rain? Maybe we'll see tomorrow?

Your girlfriend already told you once. We figured we didn't need to say anything again. grin.gif

Nice fish guys.

Alex (the guy that comes out to the tournament with me) picked up a used boat, perfect for the Zumbro. We're hoping to get out there Sunday if the weather isn't too bad.

Hopefully RugbyGuy will be able to do some fishing after his weekend of getting back on the field.

Thanks guys for the opportunity to fish the Zumbro with you.

I finally made the effort to get on the forum!

Hey guys. Yall had more luck than we did. Jason and I tried Lake Zumbro today. Jason got one right away suspended at about 12 feet in about 25 FOW. After that nothing and we left after the wet wind got the best of us. We marked a bunch on the bottom by Grandpa Ed's, but they evidently were inactive. Better weather next weekend? confused.gif

Hit up the Mississippi today and managed a few walleyes, couple northerns, and Andy picked up a few rough fish. The water is really up and some of the floats weren't open today. We put a lot of miles on the Red Explorer! Thanks for navigating Andy.

The sun came out about 8 hours toooooooo late. My fingers are finally thawing out.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
