First Shanty out on the North part of the chain! 12" of good ice. Gills we're biting!
Chain O' Lakes, Waupaca County
Columbia is most popular for Northern. Good crappie and bluegill on Taylor and Dake lake. Seems like most walleye (though they are rare) come from Round lake or McCrossen. Some perch have been caught on Rainbow, but they are rare too.
I will concur with Govener's report on the ice. Bumpy but solid ice at Taylor landing. Drive slow to preserve the ice when entering and leaving. I drove all around Sunset. Holes drilled showed solid 15" of ice. Fish below waved goodbye! :)
Wetpiece4, I drove on Sunset in a full size truck with no problems yesterday checking shack locations. Fished Columbia last weekend, and there was a solid 15". Both Taylor and Columbia landings are chewed up from truck traffic during the warm-up, but are solid again!!!!
