Hey Guys,

Heading to Zipple for the weekend. Staying in a Zipple sleeper. Anyone know the depths that they have them right now??

Should i get a deep or shallow house. Last year this time we hade a shallow that was in 16 ft and got limits.

Excited to get out of here.

What about bringing my 7x12 for a day house to fish deeper??? Anyone think its worth it or what should I do.

Thanks

last week they had some in shallow but most of there houses were out deep.as far the shallow water hasnt been seeing much action.im out in 30 ft and have been doing great.zipple does a great job on putting there houses on the fish.by all means your your portable up and set it up in the shallows.its worth a try.

If you hear how it's biting (?).. Will be heading up there the 13-17th of March. A crew of us from Fargo will be heading out to Gull Rock or Zipple.(It's good to have friends with a cabin up there..) We were on the north side of Gull a few weeks ago, but only got a lot of smaller 'eyes. (12-13 inchers) Only got a couple keepers. (& an eelpout) We were in 28'of water.

4 of us caught 55 in 2 1/2 days of fishing...not sure that means they have started to bite but 50 of them were in the 10 inch to 12.5 inch class!!!

I will be fishing March 14th and March 15th out of Arnesons. I'm hope to hear good things. Last year we did quite well and hoping for the same results if not better.

I'd be interested to hear if there are any "hot" lures that are catching them at better rates.

      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

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.
    • going4it
      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
