Zipple 2 man sleeper

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone been in one? I haven't seen the layout. Got one rented out the 2nd-4th of march. What are the odds of catching walleys after dark? Or will it be mainly pout? We going going to be mobile during the day...Hoping to hole hop for sauger. Any tip would be great.

Thanks

Hmmmm, I figured someone would chime in with a diddy for you but I guess not???

I've never done a sleeper with them but I do know Nick, Deanna and crew do a bang up job with their services so I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I've heard the bite has been quite reliable over thatta way too. As for after dark Walleyes? You never know, it's not the best area on the pond for a shot at Walleye after dark but you may luck into a WHALE, and the Burbot will probably keep you on your game thru the nite till that Walleye shows up!

Have a good trip and let us know how it went for you out there.

Stayed in a Zipple 4-man last weekend and Fisky is right they have very nice houses and are nice people. I don't think that you have to worry about that.

As far as fishing last weekend, it was really good for us. 4 guys limited. All 15-18 inch fish with a few 18-20's in there that were thrown back. Didn't get much in the day house. All but 1 came from the sleeper and we were in 14 FOW. Even caught some at night the first night.

When we told him that the next morning he couldn't believe it.

Good Luck!!

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
