Anyone heading to the horseshoe on Friday?

6 posts in this topic

Anyone going out on Friday? I have access to a snowmobile but I have never fished the chain in the winter so I am a little leary to head out to the meth hole area by myself the 1st time. If anyone with good knowledge of the chain would like to hook up for the day let me know. I would consider sat or sun also.

Please walk. You never know how much the ice has honeycombed once the temps start to rise. Your call in the end, but I like to play it safe.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
