Big bust at zipple?

Recommended Posts

heard that some guys were waaayy over the limit and got nailed at zipple last weekend. Anyone confirm? Rumor was they were from Wisconson. Two bad weeks in a row for them. First the Packers, and now a real expensive fishing trip. I wish the DNR would do an internet auction every couple months from the things they repo from these resource hogs. They should put the persons name and offense with the item up for bid.

It was in the Grand Forks Herald that all the CO's from the northern area were on Lake of the Woods and over limit was a popular ticket along with unattended lines.

I thought they were talking about the big crack that let loose Saturday just after 5:00 pm. Yep, the game wardens were out Saturday. A group of 4 came and checked us. Birchem checked us.

Got checked out of Long Point on Saturday. Passed inspection. For some reason I never run into a friendly CO - they always seem very short on words.

Lots of tickets were issued over the weekend. The DNR had several COs on the ice. I did not hear of any big over limit catches but there were several of them, and no license, fish in the slot, fish cleaned on the ice, unattended lines, too many lines and, oh yes, drugs.

So to my understanding we can clean the fish as long as we have a frying pan on the stove? confused Is this just a deal that if we are leaving the ice we need to have fish as a whole fish and then clean them after we are on dry land? then we can throw the carcasses in the garbage right at the resort correct? I woulnt' want to have the job of a CO! That has to be one of the most thankless jobs with dealing with the general public... whistle

You have it right. They want to easily measure fish on the ice. It was only a couple of years ago you could not clean Walleyes or Saugers on the ice at all. Then, they too Saugers off the slot so you could eat them and now Walleyes or Saugers are good to go.

      The pups and I put on 10.5 miles today and flushed 3 hens, 2 grouse and I killed a pine tree, 1 rooster flushed wildly 100 yards to left of us. It sure was fun to get out and seeing some birds. We did jump a good number of deer.

      A couple of Facebook posters on Lake Vermilion Cabin Owners group said that there was still open water in Big Bay Friday Morning.  I am guessing that they may be talking about Oak Narrows.  I'm staying with my original freeze-over date of Thursday, December 1.   Somebody I know who went out fishing from McKinley Park Saturday said that Big Bay was frozen over.  He also said he walked all around the bay and found thicknesses of 1" to 5" of ice, so it is still very questionable.  It should be safe for walking by the middle of next week.   This site will have ice reports for the next week or so.  I will be up the middle of next week and should report on the ice by Thursday night.  The moderator has merged this topic with the Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports topic so I will switch to posting there when I have fishing reports.  Good luck fishing, but be very careful of varying ice conditions.

      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.

      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!!

      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.

      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!  😆
