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

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
