Zippel Bay State Park?

Recommended Posts

mray

Just wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on Zippel Bay state park and its facilities (including campsites, lake access, etc.)

Also- any fishing tips from the south side of the lake would be great. I am a rookie to fishing the south side- usually go around the Oak Island area but going to try something new.

Thanks for any help!

The park is very nice. There is a first rate marina, decent

fish cleaning area, rustic camping and I think a place for

campers too.

The fish seem to be going all the time around Zipple. A very

diverse mix of rock, sand and gravel keep the fish close

by.

When do you plan to fish the area?

I've camped at ZBSP in the fall. It's a nice quiet campground. It is a primitive campground. They have a couple of hand pump wells for water and outhouses. Like Curt said, a real nice marina. It is better than what many of the resorts have. Some trails in the area for hiking/biking.

There are showers also, up towards the check in station. Nice campground, lots of wildlife. Don't fish that particular area much, but it is Lake of the Woods so it can't hardly be bad grin.gif.

later,

They also have a dump station by the shower house (w/ water) . Marina is well protected from the wind. The actual launch is a bit tricky if the wind is howling out of the N - NE. There is a dock at the launch and very nice mooring facilities. Camping is primitive (no water or electric). A great quiet place. I have a 24" camper w/ a boat trailer and can get around pretty well. Fish can usually be found in fairly close proximity. Get your bait before you go there although you could motor up to Zipple Bay Resort for gas/bait (pay attention to the markers). Have fun... give it a try.

Just a side note on doing out from the park, there is a marker bouy missing on the right side going out, it's the last one in the channel before the lake. So stay close to the left side. We hit something going out and messed up our prop. Don't know if it was a rock or the piling that held the bouy, so watch out. Fishing was good just drifting out in in front of Zippel 27-28ft. Good luck. denlin

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
