Relax Wild4fishing,

They are driving out with vehicles. The rest of

your questions can be answered with a few minutes of surfing

the other posts in recent threads. The bite should be good

but could change by next weekend. Check here midweek.

Have a great trip, you will love Zipple Bay Resort

Curt,

Thanks for the update on the driving situation. The LOW reports have really slowed down lately. I suppose everyone is out fishing.

My dad and I are heading up Wed. - Fri. and I've been trying to decide if I should bring the ATV or not. If it was just me, I might bring it anyway, but he prefers the "truck method" with the bigger portable instead of the otter. No need to bring the trailer if I don't have to.

Is it safe to assume they are driving pickups out of Adrian's as well?

Can't wait to get started...

Trucks are going out in most places but if a crack comes up in a bad place, you will kick yourself for not brining the atv...

A couple of my buddies left today for their annual four day fishing trip to LOW. Talked to him once he was north of Grand Rapids. Lucky sucker. I was at work. Silver lining: Our trip to Zipple is only a week and a half away! cool.gif I cannot wait!! I like the idea of the deep day house to seek them sauger. Good luck fishing all!

wildforfishing, I fished Zipple today. We started fishing about 9:30 didn't catch a fish til 20 to 11. It was fairly steady after that, caught some real nice saug.and walleyes. We fished in 28 ft. of water. I caught most of my fish on a perch colored jigging rap. tipped with a minnow head. A buddy caught most of his on a dead stick with a "pink/white" jigobit with a shiner. Can't wait to go back!!! Pat

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      Mmmmmmm~~~~ here's one for ya! For years we have been trying to get our fave Mayfly Rafts & Spikes into a booth at The State Fair. Rafts = ~~~  Honey Waffle coated with Dark Chocolate Glaze n Peanut Butter then sprinkled with Frozen Real Maple Syrup dipped Mayflys.  To die for. Spikes  =  ~~~ Deep Fried Triple Thick Cut of F&D Smoked Bacon dipped into Smoked flavored Pancake Batter an dipped in Maple Syrup then rolled in pile of frozen Hickory smoked MayFlys. Both Killer Pak~ons seved on a stick or in a Deep Fried Walleye Belly Fillet. Power good experience that takes you places you never been before'!! : )   Keep on rocken!   T

      I bet one of those little cans of cat food would work too.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.
