Chippewa in Brandon?

5 posts in this topic

Had anyone fished the hard water out there? A buddy wants me to go up this weekend but he has never fished it in the winter before. The DNR says there are a lot of walleyes in the lake. Any info on the bit or ice would be great. Thanks

Does this lake not see a lot of action in the winter? I was just wondering if there are any areas of ice I should watch out for.

Not sure about ice conditions. I have only fished it at early ice just out of the landing between two points. Some nice walleyes come out of there and i believe they catch panfish in that area also.

Shallows by bird island (west of landing) can be a thin ice area. Lots of structure, some pressure, lots of unfished water west of the island due to threat of poor ice. Best advise is to follow roads, the locals fish their spots for a reason. Brent

Thanks for the info. I will let you know how we do. Sounds like the weather will be a little nicer then last weekend.

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
