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 took those pictures probably seven or eight years ago. If I remember correctly I was heading up north solo, and decided like many others that I'd never fully read the spectacle and would capture it for posterity. I've never met or seen the guy, but I'm sure it would be an interesting time if you drank a few cold ones together. Speaking of Cotton, does anyone have a report on the El Toro lounge? I've always meant to stop in there but have yet to do so.

      Losing Sue is a great loss to the lake community and all of those that had a chance to interact with her. My young daughter has had to deal with a few close losses in our family this year/winter already, so she will be really sad to find out next spring that her favorite "ice cream lady' is no longer with us as well. Sue and Ron were always part of the experience of coming up north. Like many others I'm sure, my wife got corner by Sue last summer about how we needed to buy Moosebirds! I'll miss seeing Sue's smile each time we walk in the door to pick up some random forgotten item, for ice cream, or to find something "Moosebirds" to take home and support a good friend.

      Not sure how everyone else is drilling their holes with the k drill, but I have the 8" on a clam drill plate with the M18 fuel drill and don't have any problems with the drill overheating or the bit not cutting.  In 20" of ice, I clear the shavings 2 or 3 times during the cutting process and the drill cuts like a hot knife through butter.  Instructions on the k drill float are pretty clear that you should clear the shavings to prevent the drill from binding when cutting in thick ice.  Love my k drill!

      depends on what lake you go to i guess. i was up the weekend it was so bitter cold. very few lakes have plowed roads like winnie, red, mille lacs. there was probably 6 inches of snow on the ground and lake. the snow on the lake was drifted and had a bit of a crust to it. not sure what the warm strech did to it though. there are several bait shops you could call!!!!!!!!

      wow.........i'm shocked. its 27 miles from our cabin. stopped there also snowmobiling and coming thru fishing. quiet the place. so sad to hear.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!
    • Pat McGraw
      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff
