ZIPPLE REPORT

6 posts in this topic

Arrived at Zipple Bay Resort Sunday night and fished all day Monday and Tues as a miny honeymoon. The people at Zipple were great people and really took care of us. They actually moved a house out to a little deeper water than what had been fish. Previously they weren't doing much in 14' but put a house in 22' for us to try. They said we would be the "ginny pigs". We had prety good fishing both days. We ended up with about 20 fish/day between two of us. Monday a gold buckshot jig was the ticket, Tues they seemed to like a gold jig on a dead stick just as much. The best bite for us was from 9am-2pm. There was 8.5" of ice on Monday and guessing it put more on. Thanks to Zipple for a great and memorible honeymoon. Oh yeah, the majority of the fish were 14-17" with the biggest being 21". Some nice saugers mixed in as well.

Bill if they only caught 20 fish a day I think they might have possible been distracted with other things wink.gif. Might not have been watching the bobber all the time grin.gif.

Congratulations Nate, Sounds like you found a good one. Theres nothing better than a wife that enjoys spending time in the outdoors. Good report too. I'll keep you posted if we start hitting them on Mille Lacs. I haven't been out yet. With all the new snow on the lakes we went pheasant hunting for couple of days. I'll have to get back in ice fishing mode now.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
