Although i have not been out to chester as of late i can tell you what happened last year about this time. The fish (bass) were going bananas on topwater in the morning and the after that bite slowed down you could catch them nearly every cast on something big and ugly (spinnerbait/x-rap) it was such a good time. Best luck to you, ike

I hope something bites. I am taking my 4-6 year old out in my boat Fri. To the experts out there where should I go for some sunnies or anything to keep the kiddo's busy. I see by the map that there is three fingers and the dam. Without giving up your hot spots what area should I target 1st?

I was out at Chester last Sat. The fishing was excellent. I had a lot of luck across from the beach by the trees in the water and also some amazing luck if you keep going east of the beach and in far end of the "finger". It gets really shallow in there, but the sunnies are amazing. They were as big as my hand, and the bobber went down as soon as the bait hit the water. Good Luck. Nightcrawlers were the ticket.

      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.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
