27th and 28th to Zipple

4 posts in this topic

Heading up with 4 first timers to Zipple Bay on the 27th. i plan on having us on the ice by 7am or so. What's the most recent reports, depths, shiners or fatheads, gold jigs or glow red. etc. I would really like to make it a good trip for these guys so we'll be able to go up as a group more often. Any help or suggestions?

Thanks, that will help. We'll be using portables so we'll stay mobile. They bite better on shiners than on fatheads on L.O.W. for the most part huh?

I been up to LOW several times and have only used fatheads and I've always caught fish. I would bring both.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
