Been up at Long Point the last couple days,,, pretty slow so far. Lots of small ones during morning/evening bites,nothing big, but much better than sitting home. Did have a fish dinner on the ice last night.

My parents just visited friends out of Long Point. Two full days of fishing with 9 people, 2 houses, 12 total fish caught. Very, Very slow!

Moved early Saturday morning to the east side on a freshly plowed road, better bite and was able to bring home a mixed limit after lots of sorting thru smaller ones. Did ice a nice 27" fatty that's always a blast with crappie tackle.
Used gold medium size Sleepy eye/Perch on white, hooks, jig/dead stick 50/50. Fishing alone @30 fish for sat./sun. plus several missed.

All in all turned out to be a good time catchin fish / Watchin the playoffs on Beautiful LOTW. 20" of ice.

Fished afternoon 1/24 Ė morning 1/27 out of Zippel, got back yesterday evening. Besides freezing our butts off, not a whole lot going on up there. Group of six of us were able to find one 20″, a 19″, and I think one 14″. The rest were all 12″ and under, and a lot of those were under 6″ Iíd say. According to the plow guys checking in on us and the DNR guy it didnít sound like anyone up there was catching fish with the cold. Fished only fatheads because no one up there had anything else. Stopped in Kelliher and Baudette and couldnít find shiners anywhere and the bait shops were all out of rainbows as well(were expecting some the day after we arrived but we never made it back into town).



This was my first time on Lake of the Woods ice fishing. Was disappointed in Zippel to go along with the slow fishing. Our sleeper had six beds, but I think toddlers would have felt crowded in there let alone six grown men. I wasnít expecting luxury by any stretch but the houses were not very well maintained either. The houses were very warm, but thatís probably the only positive thing I have to say about the sleeper and day houses we were in. They also split our group into two day houses on Saturday after being in one big day house Thursday afternoon and Friday. It looked like they had a bigger group they catered to in the six person day house that we had been in, they had a portable set up next to it so Iím assuming they had a big crew. Just sucks to get bumped so we all couldnít fish together and two guys ended up just staying back at the sleeper house once they split us up. Overall just wasnít impressed with Zippel, donít see myself going back any time soon.
