I did a little backwater fishing last weekend before the rain got too bad.

That's totally cool! Great fish and pics. That bigmouth buffalo is a brute. UPLR Sucker Run fish for sure. That crappie is outstanding too.

Kudos for the release.

How long was the buffalo fight?

The buffalo was fun.........took me at least 15 minutes to get in. I had no net with me and had to get it right up to shore before I could grab it.

Where do you fish for suckers on the sucker run....on the Zumbro? It sounds like fun.

I'm hoping to hit alma next week if the water settles down a little bit.

A lot of people fish the Zumbro River between Hammond and Zumbro Falls, but there are suckers all over that river.

I sure hope a few buffalos are taken. That would be a blast.

Those are all real nice fish. Good work. I wish my luck was that good last weekend. Couldn't manage more than one decent sized crappie from both times out.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
