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!!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
