Zipple this weekend

Recommended Posts

fishman50

Hey guys. Five buddies and I will be heading to Zipple this weekend to fish Saturday and Sunday out of one of their sleepers. Easily my favorite weekend of the year. Just wondering what's been good for the walleyes and saugers. It sounds like a slow bite and I don't imagine this impending cold snap is going to help matters, but anything been producing fairly consistantly? I typically jig one rod and deadstick another, but I'm open to anything.

Thanks for the help. Have a good one!!

We'll be there Friday AM. Hope it was like last year, -45 and the fish were bitting!! cool.gif We'll be in a sleeper as well. Does anyone know how deep they have the sleepers? Hopefully they'll be in the 25-30 ft range.

Good luck and stay warm. grin.gif

Fishman50-

2 of us fished Zipple on Saturday and the deadstick / jigging rod combo worked great. We caught our limit in 5 hours but they very finicky and we had to move around to get on them. With 5 guys in your group, you need to start off using a variety of lures and colors which will enable you dial into whatever they will eat on a given day. For example, our deadstick with a red glow demon got zero hits while the one with regular glow caught 5 or 6 fish. So instead of switching the red glow to a regular glow, I put on a gold jig which also caught nothing, but you never know from day to day what will work.

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?

      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
