Smallmouth Alliance Event

Recommended Posts

Guest

Greetings fellow smallmouth bass lovers!

This Saturday SEMSA, the South East Minnesota Smallmouth Alliance will hold an open meeting at Sandy Point Restaurant on Lake Zumbro from 2 to 4 pm. We will have Kevin Stauffer and Al Schmidt from the DNR office in Lake City presenting to our group.
Kevin yesterday will be sharing with us important information on the new regulations for the Zumbro River....future thoughts on
where we go from here...and How to take scale samples of smallmouth bass...what they reveal about the health, size and age of the fish...and how the habitat plays into the formule for evaluating the samples.

Al and Kevin will have numerous handouts for us, and a map showing the various stretches of water that have smallies will be presented. You can commit to harvesting the scale samples from these stretches to aid in determining what if any action should be taken to promote, protect and enhance the quality of smallmouth fishing in our area.

Club President Bill Planton will also present a brief overview of our accomplishments of the past year and list a few of the proposed projects for the upcoming year to be considered by the SEMSA membership.

This meeting is open to everyone as we would be happy to meet with you and introduce you to SEMSA and smallmouth fishing in South Eastern Minnesota.

There will be a drawing for door prizes as well. Please stop out to Sandy Point this Saturday afternoon and say Hi. We look forward to seeing everyone.

Hey Big Lew, go to hear from ya! I'll probably be out trout fishing this weekend weather permiting. But if the plan changes maybe I'll attend.

I got to meet Kevin Stuaffer earlier this week, he knows his stuff!

Thanks!!

We had a nice turn out for our SEMSA meeting at Sandy Point on Saturday. The questionable weather forecast may have kept one or two people home. The gentlemen from the DNR went over the regulation change that goes into effect this next season, extending the catch and release area for smallmouth on the Zumbro River from the base of the Zumbro Dam Plunge Pool to Highway 63 at Zumbro Falls. The DNR has also selected specific stretches of the local streams for SEMSA members to take scale samples and maintain a fishing diary. At the next SEMSA meeting, the members will have an opportunity to look over the selected stretches and pick two or three that we will monitor for the upcoming season. There was an open discussion on the future of special regulations in South East Minnesota and implimentation procedures. All in all a very interesting meeting. I'll send a reminder note out when we get closer to out next meeting.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
