I don't fish zipple much in march. Some people on here said they have done well. I usually try to get out to the humps and islands for march. It probably wouldn't hurt to keep your auger extention under your truck seat.

compare to zipple? i have been to long pt 1 time this year[3-4 weeks ago] and did good. haven't made it to rocky yet. you have a little more structure to fish by long and rocky[humps,rocks,etc.] long and rocky are fairly close to eachother. sometimes its nice to change up the scenery once in a while.

IMHO, anytime you can fish early or late ice for anything you are going to find some quality fish. Anytime you are on LOTW, you have a great shot at numbers and size.

March is good at Zipple as is April.

In the past three years we've put our permanent in 27, 27.5, and 28.5 FOW and had good luck all Winter. The year in 27 FOW towards the end of March we found the best action in deep water.

My wife and I made it up for a couple days middle of March last year and the bite was hot from sun up to noon in 28.5 FOW. We're planning another trip same time but right now the fish house is in 25 FOW and last trip a month ago it was really slow.

May be going up tommorrow for a few days.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.
