Fishing/Depth report for Zipple Bay needed

Recommended Posts

Beeber

Hi Everyone,

I am heading up to LOW "Zipple Bay" on Saturday 12/29 any news on the bite and the depth which seems to be the most active would be greatly appreciated.

I have heard that the fishing has been better on the East end of the lake this past week. Any truth to that?

Thanks in advance

I fished Wed from 1-5 in 23 feet. The bite was very good--steady through the afternoon and hot the last 30 minutes of daylight. Nice fish, both walleyes and sauger. Shiners and fatheads both worked, but spoons and heads caught the bigger fish.

Good luck.

Did ok in 25 FOW last week but most reports were best in 18-20 FOW.

Pretty sure they put the big shack in 25 FOW is because if they put in shallow water when the bite turned off they wouldn't have to move it again. Most years 25 FOW is good through the whole season.

If your going in portables move around and try off all the roads. Of course the best shallow bight is morning and evening but one of the days our best action was 11-12.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      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
