I don't fish zipple much in march. Some people on here said they have done well. I usually try to get out to the humps and islands for march. It probably wouldn't hurt to keep your auger extention under your truck seat.

compare to zipple? i have been to long pt 1 time this year[3-4 weeks ago] and did good. haven't made it to rocky yet. you have a little more structure to fish by long and rocky[humps,rocks,etc.] long and rocky are fairly close to eachother. sometimes its nice to change up the scenery once in a while.

IMHO, anytime you can fish early or late ice for anything you are going to find some quality fish. Anytime you are on LOTW, you have a great shot at numbers and size.

March is good at Zipple as is April.

In the past three years we've put our permanent in 27, 27.5, and 28.5 FOW and had good luck all Winter. The year in 27 FOW towards the end of March we found the best action in deep water.

My wife and I made it up for a couple days middle of March last year and the bite was hot from sun up to noon in 28.5 FOW. We're planning another trip same time but right now the fish house is in 25 FOW and last trip a month ago it was really slow.

May be going up tommorrow for a few days.

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?

      Time to give it another go!   Anyone else out? Good luck.
