Horseshoe chain and meth hole?

Recommended Posts

phillymayne

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knows direction to this lake and where is this meth hole? It's gonna be my first time trying this lake, and I've heard good reviews about it. I'll be coming from the cities, so if anyone has info i'll appreciate your help.

94 N to HWY23 to Richmond take right on 22 Casys is accross the road. take 22 about a mile and a half to winter access. Do not use summer boat launch on the river. Check out the Cattin the chain thread here in the St Cloud forum for a map to the hole as well as tons of info.

the summer boat access is marked on the map as "DNR ACCESS". Like riverfishingmiss said "DO NOT DRIVE OUT FROM HERE".

And keep an eye out for that methane hole.. it was still open where the bubbles come up as of last Saturday.. caught some crappies and rock bass but no kitties, bite may be slowing down due to the popularity of these threads!

Please dont blame the internett for the lack of success. Imo the meth hole has had less presure this year due to the ice conditions and the fact most had to hoof it out. The bite always slows down in Jan or at least it has for the decade or so I have been chasing the cats. The chain is pretty big and has lots and lots of untouched water, all you have to do is not go to the good old meth hole one day and do a bit of exploring. I can guarantee it will pay off big in the long run.

Usually when I go somewhere else, the bite is on fire back there. grin

Lots and lots of good spots on the chain. What's tough is holding out until prime time when the bite is slow during the day. It's funny how they sometimes show up out of no where once the sun hits the tree tops.

      Do any of you guys know if Surface Tension still swims around these parts? I think I need my Nils sharpened. I had sent him a message through the HSO forum a while ago and didn't hear back. I'm not sure if HSO and Fishing MN share the same messaging platform, or if I need to try him here instead. Did a quick search and it doesn't look like he's posted in a while, so I'm hoping someone knows his whereabouts.

      Decent panfish lake. They would be my target kicks out some sporadic bites all year. Not much for a walleye lake they get stocked quite often but for some reason never take off. Don't rule out chaseing  Tullibbees. Every winter she gives some up. Piles of deep water out there she can be a tough one. I personally prefer Upper  easier to break down compared to Middle good luck!

      Heading up to Avon to fish Middle Spunk lake this weekend. Looking for any advice or insights for fishing this lake and what to target.

      All set for our annual fishing trip to Crane and Sand Point Lake. I have been going since mid 1980's and the new crew for the past 11 years. We will be there May 29 and staying at a campsite in Sand Point. We plan to venture up a bit perhaps to Wolf Island or Namakan. We fish almost exclusively for pike...all bass and eyes go back to swim again. Any spots to share for pike. We may even change it up a bit and fish crappies this year.  thanks ...good luck all you ice warriors. mark

      its a fun trip. i'd suggest going with a guide the first trip. I've gone out with the one who's last name starts with an H. He was pretty darn awesome.Then you can replicate the tactics. I've gone over there 3 times. Caught fish every time. It's AMAZING that in a large metropolitan area like that there are virtually no fishermen on the ice when it's there.

      Welcome to FM @bigpunfun   You should also try the Vermilion- Virginia Forum.   Someone looking at this will hopefully help you out.   Have fun and please be sure to come back and let us know how you do. Pics are awesome too.
