Fishing/Depth report for Zipple Bay needed

5 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

I am heading up to LOW "Zipple Bay" on Saturday 12/29 any news on the bite and the depth which seems to be the most active would be greatly appreciated.

I have heard that the fishing has been better on the East end of the lake this past week. Any truth to that?

Thanks in advance

I fished Wed from 1-5 in 23 feet. The bite was very good--steady through the afternoon and hot the last 30 minutes of daylight. Nice fish, both walleyes and sauger. Shiners and fatheads both worked, but spoons and heads caught the bigger fish.

Good luck.

Did ok in 25 FOW last week but most reports were best in 18-20 FOW.

Pretty sure they put the big shack in 25 FOW is because if they put in shallow water when the bite turned off they wouldn't have to move it again. Most years 25 FOW is good through the whole season.

If your going in portables move around and try off all the roads. Of course the best shallow bight is morning and evening but one of the days our best action was 11-12.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
