Round 2 – Zumbro Report (3/29/07) (4 pics)

Recommended Posts

The crappy weather took a evening off last night so Andy, Shane and I enjoyed it on the water. Temps in the mid to upper 50s were welcomed. We had the whole lake to ourselves. We saw 1 boat loading, just as we were unloading.

Now to the fishing. We didn’t put-up huge numbers, but I wouldn’t say we had a bad day either. Maybe tough is a better word.

The fish we found tended to be towards the bottom of water column. The spot that produced best for us, was in 7-9FOW. The fish bit timidly tonight. About all you got was a slowly sinking cork. A few fish were takin via the freeline method as well. There really wasn’t a standout method that worked best, but we kept changing it up and took a few fish with a variety of methods and baits.

Again, today was all plastics. We didn’t even open the bait well. Twister tails, Exude Micro-Shads, and Culprit paddletails all caught fish.

Only 1 bluegill today in the 7.5” range.

All fish from today are still swimming and growing!

Nobody even mentioned my black eye in the bottom pic. Caring bunch... J/K it's just the photo.

Wonder if those buggers will bite in the rain? Maybe we'll see tomorrow?

Your girlfriend already told you once. We figured we didn't need to say anything again. grin.gif

Nice fish guys.

Alex (the guy that comes out to the tournament with me) picked up a used boat, perfect for the Zumbro. We're hoping to get out there Sunday if the weather isn't too bad.

Hopefully RugbyGuy will be able to do some fishing after his weekend of getting back on the field.

Thanks guys for the opportunity to fish the Zumbro with you.

I finally made the effort to get on the forum!

Hey guys. Yall had more luck than we did. Jason and I tried Lake Zumbro today. Jason got one right away suspended at about 12 feet in about 25 FOW. After that nothing and we left after the wet wind got the best of us. We marked a bunch on the bottom by Grandpa Ed's, but they evidently were inactive. Better weather next weekend? confused.gif

Hit up the Mississippi today and managed a few walleyes, couple northerns, and Andy picked up a few rough fish. The water is really up and some of the floats weren't open today. We put a lot of miles on the Red Explorer! Thanks for navigating Andy.

The sun came out about 8 hours toooooooo late. My fingers are finally thawing out.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
