Zumbro report 3/17

Went to the lake twice today. Once in the morning (forgot camera) and once in the afternoon. Started out at Fishermans about 7:30 and found the water a bit dirty and didn't catch a thing. So I went back later in the day to try again down at the cat hole. Things didn't look to good there either.

So I came back up to Fishermans Inn to stay for the rest of the afternoon. As you can see the ice is still around 10" thick. About two inches of white stuff on top of eight inches of clear stuff.

Spent the afternoon there and found quite a few fish mostly suspended crappies and found one dead northern on the ice. Still a good waxie bite with gold being the better color for the day.

This one came to a Diamond jig tipped with a waxie.

Beautiful day and it was nice to be out. Not many left and PLEASE be careful if you are still getting out. Test the ice once in a while for thickness. Because there are still a lot of springs and they have got much bigger and I sure wouldn't want to walk off after dark.

How did those cat's treat you?

If there is still a way to get on at fishermans, I might have to go down tomorrow night and try and catch some crappies.

Tell ya the truth. I never even tried for them. The ice was in such bad shape I just turned around and went back. The water was very dirty too. Only about three inches of visibility.

As far as getting on the ice at Fish, I just used a dock. The shore is most definatley shot.

Bring a flasher because they sure aint tight to the bottom like before. I was marking fish anywhere from two feet up all the way to just under the ice.

Went out for a couple hours tonight. Caught 2 fish. A nice sized crappie and a decent sunnie. Both caught on a small yellow glow jig tipped with a waxxie. Marked alot of garbage in the water, but was able to tell the difference from the fish.

      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!
