Just thought I'd let you guys know that the carp are all stacked up at the Lake Zumbro dam and you will catch monster carp on every cast all day. Biggest one was 15 LBS

Yes there are! I was out saturday and sunday and caught 8 crappies(1lbs or more each)about 20 or so bluegills(almost all of them over 1lbs)and many many perch. There were also a few smallies to be caught. Gonna get out there again this weekend and see if i cant get more crappies. They were all in about 6 feet of water. Caught mainly with a chartru. maribou jig. Trolling got us about 4 or 5 bluegills. And bobber and worm caught about just as many as the jig. They seemed to be hitting around 5:30pm-7:30pm. It was one after another after 5pm. I havent been able to get out and see if the morning bite is any good, but just may this weekend.

One quick question...

Are the carp stacked up on the lake side or river side of the dam?

Thanks

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
