Anchor and Jig. Nick will put you in the right areas.

Fall fishing at Zipple is very good and you wont battle

the crowds. You ought to catch nice fish and lots of

them.

Make sure you have the right anchor because you must stay

still. Frozen or live shiners. Simple as that.

Thanks Curt- Thats what we have been told by some guys who went up last year. I've also heard that we will need some pretty heavy jigs to battle the current up there- what do you think- also what color jig seems to work the best? Thanks again for the advice!!

Happy fishing boys!!!

1/4 and 3/8ths jigs will do ya. Not much current, its

kinda funny because it comes and goes. It wouldnt hurt

to have some heavier jigs along but you probably wont need

them.

I have been using orange jigs this fall with good sucess.

Pink and pink and white has been good. I think most any

color will do.

Just to chime in with some help, 3/8oz Northland Gumball Jigs in the Parrott color were best for us.

What kind of boat do you run? We will be sitting out in

the Morris Point Gap in the Thief River Falls Radio Lund.

Swing by if you get that far over. If we get to moving

around we could end up at Zipple. Tell Nick and Deanna

you want to fish in Curts secret spot (shhhhhhhhh)

I'm running a Tracker Pro guide with custom Rapala graphics. We'll be up there Thursday morning- hopefully on the water by noon! I'll keep an eye out for the lund- thanks again for the info Curt: we're getting pretty pumped up for the trip!!!
