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.

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
