How was the fishing?

Recommended Posts

How was the fishing this weekend. Wife said I had to finish all the half started projects in the basement. So how was it Mostly wondering about Lake Zumbro, Chester, and Fosters. Gonna take a day or two off work and run around and do some fishing. Trying to figure out where I was going to spend my time.

I fished Foster's on Saturday from 10:30 to 4:45.

Missed a trout immediately when I dropped my first line in the water, then caught a 15-incher ten minutes later. Caught a 10" largemouth at 1:30 and another trout around 17" at 3:30.

Other than that, a lot of waiting and watching the flasher. I was marking lots of fish near the bottom. If I had dropped a jig and spikes down there I probably could have caught some gills or crappies too, but I mainly fish Foster's for trout action.

I talked to one other guy who fished with a buddy for a couple hours and he said all they caught was a smallmouth. They had a camera and he said they saw a lot of sniffers but no biters.

Never been there and from what I hear that lake gets enough action with out me dipping in the well. But mabey someday I'll venture out there for fun. But when it comes to panfish and I'm fishing for a limit. I like to do it out of bigger bodys of water where there is a larger population. But thats just me. Even though I'll keep a limit worth of crappies mabey twice all year. It's just how I am.

I was out at silver creek this morning.....not very fun. The whole resevoir was all ice, no snow on top. I set my small shack up and the wind immediately pick up and I was flying across the ice inside the shack...not very fun. I finally got it stabalized and put a line and my vexilar in the water, when the wind picked up and blew me away again. Hey keith where abouts do you fish at in the morning. I was out yesterday afternoon and caught one nice crappie towards the northeast side of the resevoir.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
