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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
