Ice out on East lake is real iffy this year. It was one of the last lakes to freeze on the chain. I have a few spots myself I want to hit for eyes out there and I have opted to wait a litle while longer. There was alot of open water out there right before we got out first big snowstorm. If ventureing out on this lake I would use extreme caution!

Becker lake has around 8 inches. The only problem can be accessability early in the year. The only way on is from the 22 access( unless you are fortunate to have a local homeowner let you pass off of there land) and crossing the river to get out there. People are doing it with wheelers and sleds but at there own discretion! crazy.gif As far as a bite Becker will always give you alot of panfish and Northern(tip-up)action it's size that can be a problem. Usally with some sorting a meal definately can be had.

Which lake in the chain gives the best chance to ice some cats? Been reading about it for a couple winters now, would like to finally give it a try.

I catch them in alot of areas but I would have to say that the most consistent as far as lakes, would have to be Horseshoe. The community cat hole (meth-hole) is a good area to start. The structure consists of a deep basin with some nicebreaklines and flats sorrounding it. If you are comeing up you can shoot me a email and I can give you some GPS points on where to start.
