Lake Zumbro.......

I drove down to the lake just to see how it looked. The main channel is wide open. All the way now. But it's very, very dirty and full of debris. Ryan's Bay is still iced over but it's opened up around the shore about twenty feet out.

Anybody know if the debris has cleared any. Those crappies are calling my name and I have a hunch on where they might be wink.gif.

I am interested also. I would like to know if conditions are good enough to break in a new outboard motor.

Well guy's I've been checking it out. I went there tonight after work. It's still a bit high and not so much debris. Actually I didn't see any. I was down in King's Marina and it really is starting to look like good fishing. But, I'm not sure about the no wake being in effect. I lost my link to the sherrifs depts. web page on Lake Zumbro no wake stautus.

The clearity has gotten a bit better too. Once the sun starts warming it up a bit I would think it should start to turn on.

I made it out to the lake today and water is really up. The water color was alright not to muddy. There is a no wake on the entire lake until highwaters go down but I saw guys totally ignore the signs. Debris is minimal just mainly leaves and weeds with a few small logs drigting through. We caught 1 8" bluegill and 2 crappies one was a 11.5" white crappie. Fished from 3pm till 7:30pm.

Down to Earth

Thanks for the report Eric. What kind of presentation were you going with? I'm about ready to make my maiden voyage out there for the Spring. Hopefully this week I can get the boat ready and get on the open water soon.

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
