Yesterday I took a trip to Rochester to watch a football game. On the way home I detoured to Foster's. I walked around the whole thing and talked to a few people fishing. Almost all them were doing well with a few Rainbows on stringers. Mostly the 10-12 inchers. One guy had a 15" too.

But the majority of the fish being caught were by using a float. Seems the depth set on the cork was only a couple feet below the surface. Minnows or worms (no crawlers) seemed to be the ticket.

Casting any sort of lure got to be very bogus because of the weird looking weeds that are growing in there. Kind of like a mushy cloudy looking stuff. The stuff grows along the shore all the way around the lake. Some of it floats on the surface too.

I remember the gooey weeds quite well. Must be some sort of algae. It reminds me of the creature from the blue lagoon...

I'll have to find my way down there one of these days when you guys are doing the annual foster's cleanup.... always sounds like a fun time.

According to the Post Bulletin (Sat Oct 28 page 7A) Photo caption of Backhoe stuck in Zumbro River. "Mud removed from the river is being used to fill deep areas at Foster-Arend lake." More nutrients for the weeds? The weeds are really bad as it is.

RugbyGuy and I fished Fosters on Saturday. We walked around the lake and casted spinners and raps where we could stay above the weeds. Andy caught 1 largie 9"er or so.

Just like Dan said, those folks that were fishing minnows under a float had a few fish on the stringer. We saw a few fish in the 13-15" slot and the rest were smaller. We did spot several trout in the shallows, just cruising above the weeds, but we couldn't get them to bite, or we spooked them.

      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!
