Fished the chain Thursday 8-14-14 from 10am till about 3pm for bass and did pretty well considering it was midday on a sunny hot and humid day. Got around 20 largies nothing huge but a 17.5 and a 17 mixed in the with usual 12-15 inchers which us what we got. Biggest came on a frog, but all others were caught on finesse worms and plastics. Deeper weeds around 15-22 feet were the ticket for most of the fish. Boat traffic got pretty busy around noon but the chain was still fishable.

I would use your depth finder and move around off deep weeds to locate schools of fish. Bigger ones I have found in 12-20FOW. Can always catch the dinkers in the weeds, but I have found the larger ones out deeper in schools. If I'm not seeing fish on the finder I keep moving till I find schools. Good Luck, post report and let us know what you find. Bass have been very difficult for me to find lately. Big Smile

Fished the Chain all weekend long. Caught many larger size Gills in 8-12 FoW using crawlers. Also managed 4 smaller LMB off the ledges. If you could avoid the boat traffic, the fishing was decent.

Anyone been out lately on the chain? Will be heading up to fish over the weekend. No need for specifics, just wanted to see how everyone has been doing. Looking to find some gills if possible. Will post how I do. Thanks!

Hit the chain today 9am till 2pm. Wind was a factor earlier but towards the afternoon it died down. Boat traffic was not too bad considering it's the week of the 4th. Ended up with 22 largemouth 3 pike and a rock bass. Most fish came off the deeper weeds and weedline around 12-18 feet of water. Not much doing in the shallows, a few fish cruising but not what I expected. Fish were caught on a mixture of soft plastics, jigs, jerkbaits, and rattletraps. Nothing huge but most fish were in the 13-16 inch range. Pike were 16 inch dinks. Did see a few nice bass in the upper teens and the 3-4 lb range but they were spooked. No smallies caught, but did see a injured one around 16 or 17 inches swimming funky on the surface.

Found some nice crappies in pre spawn mode today. They were holding in weeds near 12 fow. I'm sad to say our early fishing is coming to a end fast with all the ski boats out.

Not an exact reading, but the water temps are COLD!

Stame might have figured it out this past weekend better than me, but I got SKUNKED! Fishing deep and slow may have been the ticket.

There were a good amount of boats out for the opener and I saw one guy catching some bass. The lakes seemed like the Dead Sea. I could spot some bass and gills in a hurry leaving the shallows, but not like they are when the temps are warmer. I usually see lots of life in the clear water, but not this time.

Can anyone offer any insight? Will things pickup when the temps rise? The concern of winter kill did cross my mind. But, not sure if I've experienced an opener like this after a long cold winter like we had this year.
