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.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
