Horshoe Chain of Lakes

Recommended Posts

Guest

Was out on the Chain today. Had below average luck on Horshoe and in Krohn's Bay, but had fairly decent luck on Schneider along the north shore line. Only took home 14 fish, but the bite was steady, only way too many small fish.

Question for anyone that might know. All of the no wake markers have been taken out for the year. Does this mean we can run those areas wide open or should we still honor the areas if we know where they are.

Also, I have just found this site, so next year I will post any information I can, as I get out on the Chain at least 2 or 3 times a week.

Zamboniman, The Schneider bite has been pretty steady both Crappie and Sunnies. It will get better yet as the water temps fall. Please obey the no wake signs even though they have been removed in most spots for the year. Thanks ScottS

I was thinking of trying for some panfish this weekend on Schneider. What depth do you think they might be in with that cold weather. Any other info you have would be greatly appreciated.

I was out there last weekend and found the sunnies anywhere from 6' up by the weeds all the way to 14'. The most productive depth for larger ones was 9' to 10'. Small ones are plentiful and it may take a little searching to find some bigger ones.

No, you should go fast through those areas. There are a lot of people that live there year round. And they put those in spots where it is shallow, so you shouldnt go fast over that. Just keep it at a moderate speed, and you will be fine.

On the Horseshoe Chain. I worked the east side of horseshoe, with pretty goodluck. This is the flats area, east of the point. The area where it gets about 1-2 feet deep. I trolled as slow as my motor would go, with spinners and night crawlers. Got a few eyes, smaller ones, but what do you expect. I had a few hard hits, which had to be northerns. I was in kind of a weedy area, so I would suspect it. Other than that, not much has been going on. Theres my fishing report. smile.gif

Hi Coleman. Thanks for the sarcasm. Like I don't get enough of that already. Maybe some of us aren't as experienced as you are. I simply asked the question so I knew what the answer was, and could be respectful to the environment. Sorry to have put a bug up your butt.

Hey guys...careful now.....
Once the markers are out it is ok to travel at higher speeds, just use common sense in narrow areas and near the bridges.

Sorry if I took your message the wrong way Coleman. Didn't mean and don't want to get into an arguement on here. My bad.

I guess where I thought the sarcasm came from, and again, someone please correct me if I am wrong on this, but, if you are going at a medium speed, you are kicking out more of a wake than if you are going wide open. Help me out.

Sounds like a plan Coleman. Any news on the chain? I have Sundays off from work, and am hoping to get some fall fishing in yet this year. Would like to get into some nice sunnies and crappies, wouldn't mind some bass action either.

Chris

P.S. Above being even Minnesotans, in light of what is being predicted, we are all Americans. Hope bin Laden is found in the 50' hole of Horsehoe!!!!!!!!!!!

If you want to catch sunnies. Go to Becker and fish the south shore of the lake, with worms. Just use really light tackle this time of the year. I'mnot sure on the bass fishing this time of year. I dont get into that it much in the fall. Also, I heard Mud lake is giving out a good amount of sunnies, try the west shore there. Good Luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck
    • Hoey
      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
