How has the "chain" been producing?

Recommended Posts

Murdock

I have fished the chain several times this year with average to low average success.(To windy.Got blown off the lake several times).Mainly fished Carlos and Darling, on the weedlines and the humps or holes, using lindys, jigs, raps, and bigger spinners. I found quite a few smaller pike on the North end of Carlos, near the area where the river enters the lake. How have y'all been doing and what have you been using on each lake. One last item. I was having difficulty finding smaller sucker minnows for pike fishing. (2" to 2 1/2" long minnows). I finally located some, but the price was sky high. Any suggestions on where to go for decently priced bait?

Murdock....we've got some light pike sucker minnows...$2.75/doz. The chain has been best for bass this season. walleyes and pike have been a little more sparse. Should pick up nicely this fall. There was a 13 pound pike caught on LeHommeDieu two weeks ago...don't have the exact locale though. usually a good spot is the cabbage edges around wharf bay (bug-a-boo bay). A couple nice ones have come off Victoria too, which is now accessible through the Geneva channel.
Hope the bit picks up for you this fall....

good luck and good fishing....

Was there last week and found fish deep....very deep in some cases. Don't tell any of the bassers' of the chain this but most big fish were coming out of 25-35 feet of water on jigs and minnows. Go figure. Crappies are biting as well. Look for weedy breaklines.

Ghotierman,
Is you shop just north of Big Ole? If not, where do I turn if I am heading toward Big Ole and how far do I drive to get to your shop? I should be arriving late Friday morning for a couple days of let's hope multiple catch and releases.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Murdock...sorry for late reply...getting kids back to school.

To the shop from Big Ole...turn left and go to the next stop light...turn left again and head north on nokomis...the road split at a Y and curves to the east....a new McDonalds, and Little Dukes at the corner...We're one block up the frontage road from McDonalds.

Hope the weekend goes well...

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!
