bucks-n-ducks

Fished Zippel bay over the weekend....Saturday was great fishing, Caught my 8 keepers in under 2 hours. Threw back 8 more little ones....nothing big, just good eaters:) Sunday was COLD, we had 3 guys in the group and managed a limit again nothing big, I did catch 3 about 18 inches, otherwise all the other keepers were 13-14 inches. This cold snap should make some drivable ice out of zippel for the xmas weekend.

I was at Zipple Bay yesterday and fishing was good. Jig O Bit and I caught 100 between the 2 of us with nothing big to report. We sure caught a lot of Saugers yesterday for being in 20 feet of water. Sauger size we kept was between 14-17 inches. Walleyes was between 14-18 inches. Other than for a group who drove by us 150 times on their ATV while we were fishing it was a great day to fish. The ice where my partner fished was 12 inches in 1 hole and 8 in the other. I was 75 yards away and I was fishing on 6 inches. There was a truck on the ice yesterday. With all of that wind and the varied ice levels we found NO WAY! The road out on Zipple was moved because of all the new cracks that formed because of the wind. With it being cold here for a couple days I would still say there is no way personally after seeing the ice thickness we found that I would drive a truck for awhile!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
