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.

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.

      @Skunked Again Billy won’t be happy that I forgot one of the iconic stops on the lake!  Thanks for including Glenwood.

      We were out yesterday evening.  It was plenty warm for sure.  Bugs not bad by us.   Isaac saw 2 does 3 fawns and an 8 pt.  He harvested a doe in his first ever sit with the bow. Eli saw a doe and a fawn, passed. I saw watched squirrel's.

      Isaac was successful on his first sit ever with a bow.   He has worked hard to be able to hunt with his bow this year.  He kinda shoots better than dad right now. Proud of this little man.

      Yah, she’s a bit much.  We’re forecasted to get gusts to 40 today.  My SIL was out yesterday and said the skeets were horrible.   One friend got a doe in WI last weekend and cooler aged her for a couple days.  He said the meat turned out great.     That’s what I’m getting ready for too.

      Good point about walking into Tower from the East Two. I often forget about that.   You could also go to Glenwood Lodge at the east end of Pine Island. It's mostly beer and pizza with snacks, at least the last time that I was there. As far as I know, what Skibo and I posted are all of the locations on or near the lake.   There are also multiple shore lunch sites on the lake. They all have beautiful views, a picnic table, fire ring, and latrine. Bring your own lunch, or better yet, bring the fixings to cook up your fresh catch from the lake.

      Terrible wind this weekend for me. Next weekend is forecasted 80s. Not the start I was hoping for
