Relax Wild4fishing,

They are driving out with vehicles. The rest of

your questions can be answered with a few minutes of surfing

the other posts in recent threads. The bite should be good

but could change by next weekend. Check here midweek.

Have a great trip, you will love Zipple Bay Resort

Curt,

Thanks for the update on the driving situation. The LOW reports have really slowed down lately. I suppose everyone is out fishing.

My dad and I are heading up Wed. - Fri. and I've been trying to decide if I should bring the ATV or not. If it was just me, I might bring it anyway, but he prefers the "truck method" with the bigger portable instead of the otter. No need to bring the trailer if I don't have to.

Is it safe to assume they are driving pickups out of Adrian's as well?

Can't wait to get started...

Trucks are going out in most places but if a crack comes up in a bad place, you will kick yourself for not brining the atv...

A couple of my buddies left today for their annual four day fishing trip to LOW. Talked to him once he was north of Grand Rapids. Lucky sucker. I was at work. Silver lining: Our trip to Zipple is only a week and a half away! cool.gif I cannot wait!! I like the idea of the deep day house to seek them sauger. Good luck fishing all!

wildforfishing, I fished Zipple today. We started fishing about 9:30 didn't catch a fish til 20 to 11. It was fairly steady after that, caught some real nice saug.and walleyes. We fished in 28 ft. of water. I caught most of my fish on a perch colored jigging rap. tipped with a minnow head. A buddy caught most of his on a dead stick with a "pink/white" jigobit with a shiner. Can't wait to go back!!! Pat

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
