ZIPPLE REPORT

Recommended Posts

nblasin

Arrived at Zipple Bay Resort Sunday night and fished all day Monday and Tues as a miny honeymoon. The people at Zipple were great people and really took care of us. They actually moved a house out to a little deeper water than what had been fish. Previously they weren't doing much in 14' but put a house in 22' for us to try. They said we would be the "ginny pigs". We had prety good fishing both days. We ended up with about 20 fish/day between two of us. Monday a gold buckshot jig was the ticket, Tues they seemed to like a gold jig on a dead stick just as much. The best bite for us was from 9am-2pm. There was 8.5" of ice on Monday and guessing it put more on. Thanks to Zipple for a great and memorible honeymoon. Oh yeah, the majority of the fish were 14-17" with the biggest being 21". Some nice saugers mixed in as well.

Bill if they only caught 20 fish a day I think they might have possible been distracted with other things wink.gif. Might not have been watching the bobber all the time grin.gif.

Congratulations Nate, Sounds like you found a good one. Theres nothing better than a wife that enjoys spending time in the outdoors. Good report too. I'll keep you posted if we start hitting them on Mille Lacs. I haven't been out yet. With all the new snow on the lakes we went pheasant hunting for couple of days. I'll have to get back in ice fishing mode now.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
