zumbra, lotus, steiger, and ann

4 posts in this topic

I am planning on getting out bass fishing tomorrow, first time in a while, and with the wind that is expect we are thinking about a smaller lake on the west side. The lakes that we are thinking about are: zumbra, lotus, steiger, and ann. Has anyone been out to any of these lakes recently and can give me an updated on how the bite was and the temps that you found with the water? I have fished ann and zumbra before, with some success, but not the other too. If you have any tips you would like to share all the better.

The plan was to get out on Calhoun but with the forecasted weather, I think a smaller lake will treat us better.

Thanks,

A

I hit Stieger and Auburn on the 16th. Got on Stieger aroun 8am and fished it till about 11 then went over to Auburn. Water temps were 57 degrees on Stieger adn 59 on auburn. Not a ton of luck on either. Had a big pike hit my zara spook and bite me off. Biggest bass was a 19.75 incher caught on a green/yellow spinner bait. caught a couple other smaller fish on spinner baits as well. On auburn I caught five fish total from 11:30 till 3 and they were all under 15 inches. Auburn was crazy clear and there were no clouds in the sky that could have contributed to the crappy bite. It was a nice MEA weekend I must say... I'm hittin Clearwater and Sugar in Wright co. next weekend.

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
