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.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
