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.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
