Planning.....

20 posts in this topic

I am planning a trip up there and I was wondering if I could get some help on a good starting point to fish and good access points. I will be fishing with a portable and would like somewhere I can get to with my pickup.

Thanks

I was kinda wondering about hotels if there are any in the area. I have never been up there and it is about time that I go. It will problably be just my brother in law and me. I would plan to go during the week anyways. I work road construction so I am laid off in the winter so I get a lot of time to fish.

mnhunter we are also heading up for 4 days of fishing out of zipple bay. we are staying in a sleeper. not sure where they will put us but hopefully on fish. i do knows some guys up there this weekend at zipple staying in sleepers so hopfully it is good. do you fish by any sleepers or just all around. we are hoping for nice weather to go and venture out if the sleeper isnt doing very well. good luck

zipple does a great job putting there houses on fish.i used to rent from them all the time till i built my sleeper.now i just keep my house up there.if your buddy's are up there and they do good find out what depth they r at then call zipple and request a house at that depth of water.once in a grea twhile i will fish by a zipple house but not very often.i try to stay away from the crowds and other sleepers.my house is the same color as the zipple houses so i try not to get to close.lol

hunter how much are the shiners and can you usally get them at zipple. do they keep very long and are they smaller then the normal shinners. always hated buying shiners for northers because they usaly die easily. thanks for the info you have been supplying

Packman, iffin Zippel is selling Shiners I would guess they will have local caught Emerald Shiners for you no doubt. Log Cabin Bait is east on #8 about 7 miles and they'll have em. All the bait shops in Baudette will have local caught Emerald Shiners too. I'd say you'd probably wanna have a bag of Emerald Shiners fishing over around Zippel, I would anyhow.
