1/21 Chain Report

Recommended Posts

Sure was a windy one out there today. Went out on the chain looking for some kitties this morning with the GF and the dogs. Found some in one of the deep holes but they were moving around a lot and didnt seem interested in anything we put in front of them. They were suspended from 8-15 feet of water over 33 feet. After freezing my fingers hopping around trying to stay on top of them, we set up the Thermal in a little shallower water for some panfish.

Right away we found a pod of fish in aboot 20 feet of water over a soft bottom. It was a mixed bag of gills and crappies. The crappies were a little on the smaller side, but we caught some nice gills. Britt had the big gill of the day and won't stop bragging aboot it, The hook came out at the top of the hole and I though she was gonna have a panic attack trying to get it before it backed down the hole. Britt was using a green Bug with a red plastic and caught more gills than crappies, and I had on a rattl'n flyer spoon and had more crappies but only one bluegill. The dogs had a blast watching the fish come up and would stare down the holes waiting for the next one.

Gonna head back out tomorrow with the nicer weather and try and get those cats to cooperate

That's a nice gill for sure!

Kinda tough to do the hole hopping thing today. I did it for a hour or so and the hands took a beating.

Good Luck tomorrow.

Yeah, I tried hole hopping today as well, and I didn't stick it out too long. Sometimes it's nice to have an excuse to be lazy and sit in the fishhouse. smile

Well we moved around to a couple of other spots today and found some better crappies, but the story of today was the bass. They were going crazy right in with gills and crappies. Of course Britt beat me again today, I gotta stop taking her fishing with me!

      Does anyone have A 5 person sleeper ice house for rent during February 6th through the 10th?

      Police brutality is a concern right now in many areas, and everyone is working to safeguard their rights. But it is this situation itself that needs to be examined. Having knowledge of police brutality was really helpful to me. Try this at . There is a ton of information here https://supremestudy.com/essay-examples/police-brutality/ on it, which you may also examine in further detail huge learn more about. I hope it will be helpful to you

      Finding between 3-7 inches of ice around most of the st cloud area. Was on one of the bigger lakes and one of the shallower ones in our area today. On the larger lake,  lots of ice in the bays, but main lake had roughly 3 inches where I checked.  The Shallow one had right around 7 inches.  Fish bit very well on one, and not so great on the other.

      Polkiss this...   Logging is the only way out of the Smokey the Bear debacle. We've created so much fuel in the understory from fire suppression. Logging, BIGTIME may be the only answer. Top off the past century of fire suppression with now hundreds of thousands of acres of bug kill in our mature forests when as much as a bug farts, millions of acres lie waste to everything from fire, even micro organisms in the soil. Then heavy rain, or snowmelt washes away what's left...... Log Baby Log 👍👍 and flood the mills with wood, not ash.

      many thanks to you all for providing the information.  it is appreciated.

      Knowing and comprehending it myself For instance, logging has increased significantly over time. This can't possibly be permitted. I can speak for myself when I say that we now need to consider how to read about this essay [source] because I was able to learn a lot and even used this information to write a course at the university. Therefore, if anyone needs some knowledge about deforestation, it is useful from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Everyone must protect the environment!

      Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the safety tip.  Always good to know where springs in lakes are!  👍

      Ok I did not check ice thicknesses yet but green, blue, baxter, lori, and elk all had anglers on them. I hope to check thicknesses soon.
    • Cookie123
      There is also some springs in the way back of blue lake ( In nashwauk MN) If you go back there you may run into some if you go to the right or the left there is some both directions so I would suggest not going back there or if you do i would check the ice every 25ft or so at least have fun out there
