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...

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
