Saturday 7/30 early ?

Recommended Posts

Anybody want to float the Zumbro this Saturday? Leave the Falls around 6:00 a.m. Try to be in Hammond by 10:30 a.m.

We could park our vehicles in Hammond so we can just load up and head home when we get done.

Tyler Holm and I floated the Z.F. to Hammond run yesterday and had a pretty good time. We fished from 6:00 a.m. untill noon.

Although the big ones weren't cooperating, the numbers made up for it.

Tyler caught a number of smallies uisng a chartruese jig with a mister twister tail. He was catching ten to my one. I was using a Rapala.

I caught a couple saugers too, but nothing to write home about for size.

I don't bring a thermometer along, but I could tell the water temp really cooled down.

We got a liitle wet from the rain, but it wasn't too bad and all in all it was a fun trip with good company. Thanks Tyler!

Thanks again Dan, for the ZR fishing trip. I had a blast. That's something I need to make a habbit of. I could get use to putting that into my weekly/bi-weekly fishing routine. I truly enjoyed the trip and company.

I think I will point out that my twister tail was scented powerbait. Not sure if that made any difference, but it seemed to produce the most numbers. If interested in seeing pictures, please email me. Like Dan said, there are no jaw-dropers, but Dan and I are so photogenic I had to snap a few. blush.gif

Hook and worm seemed to attract the skipjacks (mooneyes) and shephead, however I think Dan did catch one Sauger with that presentation.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
