bass on the H chain and other observations


Recommended Posts

Several things

first thanks guys I was on the chain(1st time ever- I love love love this place - even though the weather s&*%*23) last weekend chasing kittys caught two 4-5 lb range in 4 ft of water. Also saw alot of wally's caught near the hwy 22 bridege and highway 71 bridge(I thinks its hwy 71). Don't know what they were using.

Now for the bass I am headed up to chase some bass and kittys for a club tourney(bass) and for (kitty for fun with my dad) in a couple of weeks( its not the heart of chain tourney). What I understand so far for bass is it focus on the following areas: schnider lake, becker, and cedar island. Am I correct in my thiking??? What part of becker should I focus on? the shallow flats or the deep hole? What part of cedar island should I focus on??

I will be up on the chain for the next three weekends. I will be in a 16.5 alumicraft classic delux with a 50 hp merc. with a chevy silver silverado. Say hi if you recoginze me. I am puttin in at hwy 22 ramp.

thanks everyone.

For those who live on the chain I envy you big time. This place reminds me of home with fishing with my dad.

Those lakes would be good choices. I'd also add the river sections to your list. Little out of the current areas will hold bass right now. Actually, I've caught my best bass in the river sections on the chain. The river bass location is much more predictable than those in the lakes.

I love the H chain also. I've been going there every spring for the last 9 years. We had our best luck last weekend. 8 guys. We had 34 walleyes, 1 northern, & 6 cats. 2 walleyes were over 25 inches.

Walley-eye, don't you want to tell us who it was that caught the two walleyes over 25"? More importantly who caught 5 out of the 6 channel cats?

BigDave2 that would be me catching the 2 walleyes over 25" plus 1 catfish. I'll take that over 5 catfish anyday.

I don't know. Those cats were pretty fun to catch and even better to eat!

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?

      All of us who couldn't be there for opener would love to hear how the fishing was....😉

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
