      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

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.

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.

      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.

      We made a day trip a couple of Sundays ago. Fished from about 9:30 to 3:30 and my kid caught 2 walleye- 21" & 25" with a tag. In the past two winters I've made a total of 3 day trips and have a total of 10 walleye from 19-25 inches. I think the numbers may not be a may, but the quality is great. Very similar to the late 90's not as many fish, but great size.

      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
