May not want to say you plan to hook a sturgeon on purpose since there is no open season on them on the chain.
Chain O' Lakes, Waupaca County
Went to ICC for dinner on Saturday and kayaked the upper Chain on Sunday afternoon. Still some ice hanging on in the bigger lakes, but it is going fast. Smaller lakes and connecting channels are all wide open. It was in the mid 60s yesterday and today with 60s and even 70 seen in the next week. I suspect everything will be ice free by the opener.
MOON PHASE (70%)
Ive fished the chain my entire life and all that time heard of the monster sturgeon. Never seen one myself but may have hooked into one on round with a jig and worm fishing for walleyes. This summer I'm intending to hook photograph and release one of these elusive giants. Would be a dream come true if it actually happened, waited my whole childhood to see one. Any information on where they hangout in the chain or sightings would be greatly appreciated. You can post it on here or if you prefer to keep it lowkey reach me at 847-312-6912. Thank you very much.
There has been a rash of shanty break ins on the Chain, and throughout Waupaca and Shawano Counties. They bring drills, crowbars, and hammers. Its not just your local idiot out joyriding. They planned this and They WILL get it. Don't make the mistake of leaving anything of value in your shanty. For under $40 there are a variety of battery powered hidden cameras that record onto SD cards. They are disguised from screw heads to smoke detectors. Install one. I for one know my shack will remain unlocked, and anyone caught messing around it will be posted on here and every Facebook page I know, so their faces will be seen. These guys aren't going anywhere in life. I didn't lose anything of real value, its just the idea of scum bags like this messing with our pasttime. We have more eyes than they know.
