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.

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
