Whitefish Chain This Weekend

3 posts in this topic

I am going up to the Whitefish Chain this weekend and I know I will have to dodge all the pleasure boaters (aka Gas wasters). I will be looking for Walleye's and Sunfish if I can't find the eye's. Any one got any hints for where to look for the eye's on whitefish or cross? Any hint would be appreciated. I am hoping not to have to trailer the boat to Mille Lacs for a day to catch the eye's.

I will be in the G3 boat. I have yet to see another G3 on the Chain.

I'll be up there this weekend as well. I have never fished the Chain, but would appreciate any hints on where to start looking for some 'eyes. I'll be out in my Tracker Tundra FTE.

Get up at 5:00 AM, drink coffee for 30 minutes and then go fish where all the boats are. The bite has been good on all the areas listed on your "Hot Spots" map. It seems to be a leech bite more than red tails. Look 17-23 foot range and move if you don't find fish.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
