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)

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
