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.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
