Zipple Bay Reports

I just got back today. Fished Friday, Saturday, Sunday and this morning. Probably the worst trip I have ever had up there. The morning bite was spotty and then just absolutely shut off. Three guys 18 keepers in three and a half days.

pink charmer gold and glow and red glow were best

What is that? Have the "stop signs" and various other spoons/jigs.

Those were the exact lures we had on all weekend. I killed them on the pink gold and white last weekend. We were right by the pressure ridge too, only about 29 feet of water though. I guess we were just in the wrong place this weekend!!

On my way home from a four day weekend up there. Friday through Sunday we were a zippel in one of their sleepers. 29' of water, probably 100' from the pressure ridge. 3 of us caught 147. Most were. Nice size sauger. We tried shallow a few different times with most of the walleye being on the smaller side. Pink/gold stop sign, glow red angel eye, and pink/gold macho minnow were the best jigs. Went out of Adrian's road today. We worked 18' in the morning with some success, moved out to 32' with not even a fish marked for 1.5 hours. After lunch we spent a good hour to find fish before setting up and did great in the afternoon. 172 fish for 3 guys in 4 days. One of the better trips I have had in a few years.....

Stayed over a 2 day this past weekend. We had a 25ft deep day/ 15ft shallow evening 4 man house package. learned the lesson to bring a generator next time. The shallow bite was non-existent aside a couple tiny saugers/walleyes. We caught all our fish in 20ft-30ft water.

It was pretty slow in the houses where the warmth was and we ended braving the cold just to find fish. We iced maybe 60+ or so fish, less than half keepers.

Jimmy. we were about half way down from main if you go tto far it gets shallow again and we were in 30 ft to top of ice. I did see some resort houses out on the other side of heve on monday looks like ya have to go way west to get across. would be nice to get to some virgin water on that side!! good luck and be careful around the ice heave it looke open in the middle about 2ft wide.

Thanks Walleye. Are you heading up this weekend? I will be up there Friday morning. I was about 200 yards around the corner from lindy and about 200 yards from the heave. I seen the resort bring a bridge past on Sunday afternoon. So I was assuming they were planning on getting over that heave.

Sorry, we were busy all day rippin lips!! Looks like about 18-20 inches. Out in 30' and got 4 limits...we'll be eating fish for the next 3 days to make room in the bucket!! This is the best fishing we have had here. Nothing huge..biggest was 18.5. only got 4 keeper eyes all the rest saugers. Im guessing we caught around 50 or 60 today..4 guys.

On Tuesday we setup on the shoreside of the ice heave, about 27fow. 7 of us caught 8 fish, just enough to compliment the chili that evening. On Wednesday we went to the other side of the ice heave, over 30fow. The 7 of us went home with 2 walleye and 5 sauger each. It was a good day.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.
    • smurfy
      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.
    • leech~~
      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆

      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
