Hopefully somebody is online at work reading this..... I am headed up today. I should get there around 8 pm or so.. I was wondering if anybody had any good tips that they are willing to share.... I was there last weekend and I went all the way to where the road stops then went to the east. I was in about 27' of water. We did OK at the very best. I am bring the wife with this time so I would like to find some steady action.... Any tips??? I did notice that the resort houses are to the west... By the way I am in a wheel house. Thanks in advance.

Hello!

Coming up in a couple weeks, have stayed at Zipple and really liked it there. For the sake of just trying something different we are considering staying with "Ships Wheel," wondering if anyone has a feeling one way or another on them? Nice people, cabins, fish houses etc? Also, they do not seem to be located as nicely as Zipple is in terms of proximity to the lake, should that in itself scare me back to Zipple?

Thank you!

well if you guys liked zipple and caught some fish why not go back to zipple.i always say im going ot try somewhere diff but i never end up doing it.cause i like zipple to much.the only time i get out and go all over the south end is very late ice when 4 wheelers only allowed on the lake.im not sure how far ships is from the lake i know zipple resort is 2 miles from the lake.

I have the sleeper at Zipple for four years now and have chartered with my wife on three day stays for the past three years. Prior to the sleeper used to drag the camper/fish house and and prior that going back 10 years used to use their facilities.

To guess would have to say been up there 150+ days and can't think of one bad experiance with the owners or staff. Nick and Dianna are very active in running the resort, been that way for many years.

For the first time last Summer got to ride on Nicks boat and a guy from Minneapolis had the pleasure of landing a 29in eye and I got my biggest yet by 1/3 lb a 30in 10.5 pounder. His was kept mine was released.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      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.
