Did anyone hear about the fisherman stranded on Taylor lake about 100 feet from shore yesterday? I guess I won't be heading out again.

It's official. I herby declare Sunset Lake will now be referred to as Wildcat Lake going forward. The Chain Board will likely be reprinting the maps and changing the signs at the boat landings accordingly.

Going forward, fisherman can only use the official lure when fishing these waters. See attached.

I'm inquiring about the ice conditions. I'd like to get out one last time before I put the ice fishing equipment away for the year. So if anyone can give me a report if they have been out or what they heard from others, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Uk, You are funny! You don't need gps points to fish the chain, but maybe you did follow me around. Too bad you were not there when I lived on it. It would have been nice to compare notes. I moved off in the early 2000's, and only return a couple of times a year. Maybe we could still meet. Tr

I've given up fishing the Chain this year. That's the best advice you'll get from anyone. If you wish to try anyway, find weeds in 20 FOW on any lake and you'll find as many 3" gills as you can catch. Move, move, move until you find them. If you are not familiar with the lakes, fish where you see others have been fishing. They're usually there for a reason.

I learned how to fish the Chain over the past 15 years just by reading Tomr's posts with GPS coordinates of all his hot spots. I'm surprised he didn't offer to help you with any advice with all his experience fishing the Chain.

Knowing Miggle, he'd probably guide you on Dake lake, show you all his spots, and bring the beer. But, beware that the spots aren't that good, and he drinks really cheap beer!

Blue, Do not expect much of a reply! I have been asking for info for 2-3 years and they won't reply! When I lived there, I gave out info, but these guys don't seem to want to share info. Tr

My guide caught all the big fish in the Chain last year. Now, the only thing left are 3" bluegill and a few cans of beer.

Went out and fished our normal hot spots and only found the 2"-4" blugill that seem to be overtaking the Chain this year. To make matters worse, we couldn't even catch them, as they weren't very interested.

Strange year on the Chain with the swarms of little fish. On the positive side, in about 5 years we'll have plenty of good size panfish!

Also tried three lakes on the upper chain and barely marked a fish, with little interest as well.

It might not be springs opening up the ice. I have been told by the old timers that schools of ciscoes can do that. Regardless, it will still swallow a truck.

All these lakes have had open springs all winter. Some even in 50 foot of water. Never seen it this bad before. Drive careful.
