TUMBLEWEED

I'm looking to fish some chains of lakes around clearwater\st.cloud area.I've heard of the Horseshoe chain.Is there any other that might be decent??I'm not a fish hog,mostly catch and release.Any help would be appreciated.I like the ability to move to another lake without pulling up da boat!!

TWeed,
In this area, the Horseshoe chain is your best bet if you want to fish a variety of basins. Take a look at Julia, Briggs and Rush as well. These are smaller lakes, but worth a try. Further over towards the Willmar/New London area there is the Norway/Games chain, also smaller lakes but good variety.

Tumbleweed-I am going to recommend the Horseshoe Chain also. It sounds like you are looking for open water action. The Horseshoe Chain is generally very good all year. The water gets a little green come mid summer, so I would recommend early in the year, May through June.ScottS

Thanks fellas, I will go with the Horseshoe chain for starters.I looked up 3 campgrounds on the chain to set up a base camp at.The plan was for an early outing,maybe even the opener.Again, thanks for the input...

The opener will be excellent on the Horseshoe Chain this year. When there is a late ice out, the fish are stacked up in the river on the opener. You should have some really good walleye fishing.ScottS

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.

      Thanks Rick! Jeff hope to make it always a good time and laughs when you get a group of great people together. I usally do more jaw jacking  then fishing at these things but for me its just as much fun

      I will donate a few goodies. I will send it to @Tom Sawyer if he messages me his address.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
    • smurfy
      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
    • DonBo
      Toying with the idea of heading up there Saturday morning. Only been there a couple times, never on the opener.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Anyone go out on the opener? I usually wait a week before heading up there, so curious to hear some ice/fishing reports.
    • Roscoe010
      Did any of you check out the pits for winter trout opener last weekend? Thanks!
