Do you want me to bait your hook too?

On a differnt note. The chain is a great place to fish for many differnt spiecies of fish. Stop at one of the local bait shops spend a little cash and they will get you pointed in the right direction. Becarefull on the ice out there the Chains ice thickness can vary widly in a few yards. wink.gif

we were out yesterday...out from 22....there were several full-sized trucks out...BUT I WOULDN"T TRUST IT. We drilled about 20 holes...some were 20" some were closer to 11" the current is very unpredictable, but the fishing was good...14 cats (one monster 9+lbs) and a few smallish 'eyes......rock bass to boot!

I was out on Long this morning till 2:00 folks were driving over in front of old browns resort. I didn't still not sure. I found the ice to be 13 - 15 inches around the bible camp area. Fished in 20 FOW managed 5 cats and to crappies. Cats suspended in at 15 feet and crappies on the bottom go figger. No eyes though. Nice relaxing time watching the snow fall.

I have a cabin on Horseshoe but have never fished through the ice there (bought it last spring). I ice fish alot in the Minneapolis area. Any advise for crappies on the chain? My cabin is right by the two little islands on the west side so I am hoping to try close to home. Thanks for any help.

I know that the crappies were biting on cedar island lake on the west side of crane island. Also I beleive they were getting some out on the rock pile. If you know where they drive onto horseshoe in the winter the rock pile on cedar island is right across the road straight out. I'm sure there are houses out there.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
