Horseshoe Chain... Ice fishing?

3 posts in this topic

I've never fished the Chain through the ice. Where could a guy start for fishing? What's the main target out there?

I'm interested in fishing it within the next couple of weeks. Could anyone give me any advice?

Either reply here, or drop me an e-mail at mike_dogg412@hotmail.com.

Thanks!

this is a great to fish!

I love it for the summertime, fishing bass there is a blast, even better when you get into the smallies.

The chain can be a terrific lake for a lot of species, but many enjoy it for the ability to catch some catfish through the ice. Fished it several times this winter for that purpose and man can that be a riot if the bite is on. Red rattlin varmit and a piece of cut minnow, set the hook, and hang on!

P.S. Don't throw out those dead minnows that have died in your minnow bucket between weekend fishing trips. Bag em up and throw em in the freezer and mark with a sharpie: "Cat bait". The longer they are dead the better!

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
