Pine Island or Zipple

13 posts in this topic

We are heading up after lunch today and I'm wondering if anyone has heard if one is better than the other? We are in the SUV this weekend. Personally I would like to take my sled out to the islands tomorrow but the guy I'm with doesn't have one and I don't feel like a 45 minute piggy back ride first thing in the morning.

Was up on Zippel Bay Jan. 29th till Feb. 1st. Cold outside 45 below wind chill made it hard to move around so found it was kind of slower fishing that in past years. Must have been the part of 32 one day and-12 the next. Still caught walleyes and sauger.. out in 31 feet of water...resort does a great job..found set lines caught more bigger fish than jigging.

mnhunter, what road is your house on? I am on Hotspot to the right about 1/2 mile or so about 100 yds north of the road. Have on 8x20 white house with black trim. I will be up there Fri the 8'th. Will be driving either a blue f250 or white f150 depending on how cold it is supposed to get. Lets hook up for a beer if you are around.

Our group split up and they did much better at Zipple Bay. We were all over Adrian's roads and only managed a few. The reefs are still the hot ticket. We caught a few and didn't have to deal with sleds & trailers. Sometimes it's not all about the fishing...

Heading up to LOW for the first time this weekend. We're fishing Sat. only as part of a weekend excursion. We'll probably be sniffing around Pine Island, any suggestions? Where can we find some jumbos? Thanks.

Perchwich,

I have heard of people catching some jumbos mixed in with the sauger and walters. If you want some nice perch I would just go to Waconia. I will also be up at LOW this weekend, if you see a black F-150, stop by for cold PBR.
