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.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
