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!

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
