My wife and i are going up to Chase for at least one, maybe two nights. Can anyone suggest if it is worth it to hire a guide for 3-4 hours and go out? Doubt that morning would work and since she really doesn't like fishing that much I think 4 hours tops. I would like to go out Tuesday evening if the weather is decent. Suggestions?

Thanks for your time.

Tom

you could call City Dock launch service which is about a 150 foot walk from the Chase. They may have two openings on an am or afternoon trip. That would be 8-noon or noon-4. It doesn't fit your plan and frankly I'd go out in the am but if you're wife gets bored she could sit opposite the Captain and read or just chat with Jerry. He's got years of strories under his belt if he's driving the boat. Probably cost you less too. Just another option.

Tom, wish I would've seen this earlier. Leisure Outdoor Adventures guide service is based out of the chase. Did you get out?

We are going on on the 8th. I saw the connection to Leisure on the Chase website. I was hoping to get some more info on times/prices/whether there is any action. Seems like every time I have hired this type of thing you hear 'they were biting yesterday.....'

Thanks again.

I must have hit a nerve with my earlier note. We are back. I never saw a fishing boat out on the bay that I could see form Chase. I guess I don't know what's going on up there but I apologize for any insult I may have made.

Tom, no nerves hit at all! I apologize, as I haven't been on this forum much lately. Last week was extremely busy for us and most were on the lake scratching our heads on what the fish were dong towards the end of the week. The fishing has been a bit tougher the last few days. I have been resorting to fishing the shallow weeds just to put a few keeper fish in the boat or pulling spinners across the rocks for slot fish depending on what my clients would prefer to do.

      The people that used to fish Mille Lacs are migrating north because of all the issues down there.  The resort where I stay (on LOW) has noticed a large increase in Mpls traffic.  I believe fishing pressure is rising up north because of this.  Another thing is boats are much bigger now than 10 years ago allowing more people to get on the big water more easily along with the wheelhouse frenzy on the ice.  It all adds up to more fish harvest.   Don't think ML will ever get back to anything close to what it was.

      Jetsky, I was skunked yesterday afternoon in Frazer, but did very well today (9:30-11:15, 4:00-5:30) . 20-25 feet, jig or Lindy with a leech or crawler

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀

      Was up over the weekend and fished Friday and Saturday for an hour or two each day.  Couldn't get a bite on a leech but rainbows were the ticket.  Walleyes were on very narrow window of feeding but when they did bite caught 6 slot fish 22-26.  All healthy and spitting up 2-6 inch perch in the net.  Green beads and Red beads on a 6 foot lindy drifting about 0.7 in 13-16 feet of water.  Find the bait balls on the sonar and look for the walleyes underneath.  No keepers but that's ok the slot fish were sure fun
