Zippel in a week

Recommended Posts

Anybody been out of Zippel? Was wondering how the fishing has been and how deep the sleepers are? Was up last year and did very good out of Zippel. Any hot tips would be appreciated! Need some reports to get me though the week. smile.gif

I fished out of Zipple on Sunday. I have to give them a lot of credit for the condition of their roads after all the snow we had received the day before. I was in 21 feet. I caught my 8 fish limit with only two of them being walleyes. Nothing over 15". I threw back 6 small walleyes and saugers. I started fishing at 10:30 and didn't have any action until 12:10. It was fairly steady up to 3:50.

Our group of 9 fished out of Zippel on Monday and Tuesday.

A fair number of fish but all were small. Only 18-20 FOW.

They run a top notch resort and do a great job on the road, but wish their houses were out in deeper water. Nevertheless, we had a great time.

We went out of zipple today and fished in around 25 feet. We got set up by 8:30 and the four of us had our limit by twelve. Seemed almost any color lure and bait were catching fish. Probably the lure that got the most bites was a white and pink lure that kinda looked like a banana. Im not sure what type it is but it seemed to have more bites than the rest. We caught hardly any fish that weren't keeper size. Our biggest fish of the day was a 22". Stinks that there is a slot limit now. Oh well just have to go out again and try to catch me a 29 or bigger fish.

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
