Zipple Report for Friday Feb 15

6 posts in this topic

Well we finally get up to LOW, at Zipple Bay around the 1:30 pm time range...was fishing in 28 1/2 ft of water. started off real well, as I think we caught 4 eyes *2 keepers within 5 min of being there...Thinking we were on the mother load! However until dark, we only caught 5 more with 1 of those having worthy of hitting the pail. Lots of activiy on the vex but they got real picky, FAST. I tossed everything I had at them and they still made the call! Temps are supposed to warm up today, so hopefully that sparks some action. Good luck to all fishing on LOW this weekend.

Thanks for the report. I hope things perked up for you. We are heading up to Zipple Bay Resort on Wednesday. First time on the lake. Fish out of portables the first day and a sleeper the next. I understand Nick has roads plowed out "all over the place". Any timely tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well yesterday was a decent day of fishing, but once again we no more drop the lines down and boom....pulling up eyes left and right. Nothing with any size. My dads hook, caught nearly all of them with a plain hook. He is a very simple and plain fisherman. He always believes that one line should always be a plain hook. He grew up fishing with plain hooks and caught many many fish that way. So of course, me and my brothers heard all about, why we should take off those expensive hooks were were trying and go simple. But before noon we caught 11 eyes in 2-3 hrs but nothing for the pail. It wasn't until 4ish, we started to see some activity. We caught 6 more, with 3 of them worthy of the seeing the freezer. Still haven't latched onto a 20 something to catch and release Everything has been really small...I think we might more out a little bit deeper this morning to see if we can get some bigger ones, it tough to do that when you got fish tugging at the line too. I will let you know how we did today, Sunday. Good luck all

On a side note, My cousin was up here fishing (at a different location) and landed a 45 inch pike...Weighed 25 lbs 10 oz and had a 21 inches of girth. I seen this hog first hand last night. Very nice fish. He is making some taxidermist happy...

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
