Today the huskers played at 11:30 so when the game was over I still had a few hours that I could go out fishing. I had not been to Zorinsky before and had actually stayed away because it was recently drained and I wasn’t sure how the fish population would be.
We had so much rain over the past few days that I knew the water would be muddy and I thought the fish may be around the dam since I could see quite a few crawdads sun bathing. Fishing along the dam though did not produce any bites. At the south side of the dam the were some bushes that I fished around and caught one fish on a bright chartreuse spinner bait so I headed towards the west side of the lake to fish more sunken trees.
Just on the west side of 168th at there are trees everywhere and most of them are in good depths of water by the channel. I started throwing a large black worm and hooked into a 20 inch hog! I weighed it and it measured 4.75lbs! I was completely surprised and had no idea there were bass this size on Zorinsky.
I caught 1or 2 more before deciding to go home and watch some more football! What a day!
Enjoy the pictures
Overall Ranking: 4 Star
Good boat ramp and lake structure. There was good depth with docks, rocks and trees to fish around. We caught fish but it was a little slow and it is a crowded lake.
