wmn luv me walleye fearme

Was thinking about maybe buying one of those old resort cabins up on the horseshoe chain. Not to concerned about what the place looks like more concerned about the fishing and I know nothing about that area. Is it pretty decent fishing overall? Good walleye/pike fishing? Seems to be more affordable then alexandria

Thanks

I have a cabin on the chain and I love it there. I used to do pretty good fishing walleyes but now that I own a cabin I don't get out all that much. There is so much varied structure on the chain that you will never run out of places to try. Early in the year I have had days where I may have caught about 30 walleyes in a three hour period - 28 of them were 1/2 lb the other two 2 to 5 lb. Never lack for action. There are walleye spots, pike spots, largemouth, smallmouth, crappie, sunfish, and lets not forget the ever present catfish. The cats are great practice, you will certainly learn to bring in a 5 lb + fish on ultralight tackle. I like the area.

My buddy's granparents have a cabin on the chain and I used to go up there quite a bit. We usually catch decent walleye & crappies when we try for them but we normally would focus on the great channel cat action. We just sit out on the dock at night and battle catfish one after another.

thanks a lot for the info. Good to know there are some cats in there to. Got a 2 year old boy and cant think of a better way to get him into fishing a couple years from now then pulling up some cats by the dock.

I fish the chain almost every week in the summer. I bring my 4 year old and my 2 year old and a friend of mine brings his 7 and 3 year old. We always laugh about how peaceful we look and what caring fathers people on the highway probably think we are, but it is usually quite the cluster! We get tons of cats (almost to many to make it relaxing) and the kids get tons of action, if we can get a good hour out of the kids we call it a success and head in. To date, no kid has gotten wet, gone over board of stuck by a hook of fish. knock on wood.

When your kid is older there will be plenty to do as well, as many sandbars have thier share of bikini-clad girls and boats of skiers and people having cock-tails. It's really no fun at all......

I bought a rental cabin this summer on the chain and loved spending time there on the occasional un-rented weekend. Lots of fish. I have still only seen four of the lakes. I am on horseshoe right behind the two little islands. Tons of cats there. My friends pull them in one after another after an evening of grilling steaks from Tessmer's and a few of Coldspring's Gluek beers.
