Had two 4-person sleeper houses rented last weekend (Jan. 4-6) out of Zippel Bay Resort. We did real well in the 3 days. Totalled about 150 (walleye/sauger & 10 perch) between the two houses, including a 20-inch and 27 3/4-inch walleye both caught on rattle wheels on plain hooks & fatheads. We were woken up all 3 mornings around 7:45 a.m. to the sound of rattle wheels going off, and the bite would be hot for about an hour and then taper off. But we still had plenty of action throughout the day, and even were woken up a few times during the very early morning hours (2-3 a.m.) by the rattle wheels. The big walleye came at 10:15 p.m. on the last night of our stay. We caught a lot of dinky walleyes between 6-11 inches, but still caught plenty of keepers to go around (all 8 people went home with limits, and even had some to eat during our trip). Fished 22 feet, and they had our houses set up on the far out edge outside all of the other houses. Gold and pink/glow didn't let us down, jigging or deadsticking. Hope this helps. Good luck!!

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
