The ice by the boat landing may be gone today on Taylor. Ice had lots of columns yesterday. a few spots on the lake had weak ice, a chisel could of done the job. Fishing slow.

Heading down to Taylor Lake this Friday/Saturday. Anybody have any current ice conditions? Safe to drive on? Also, if anyone cares to help, would be nice to get some info on what they're hitting on. I don't want your sweet spot, just some tips on minnow type, size, lures, or jigs, weedy locations, or whatever. Can trade info for Shawano Lake if interested. PM's are welcome too.

Thanks! -Jason

Ice Depth: 18"
I think the winning northern was 31, bluegill was around 8, perch was around 9 or 10 and the sunfish was only 4 inches. Im not sure on the bass. As far as I know no trout were registered. I fished rainbow and I caught one 16 inch northern and had a large trout on and lost it at the hole Crying overall very slow day

FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 16° - 20° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Hit one of the shallower lakes on the chain after a failed morning poygan trip. We got on the ice around 1130 and fished till 515. We drove out onto ice without problem. Saw several other trucks out on ice. The ice I measured was over 17 inches as the handle on my ice scoop is 17 inches and the ice was thicker then my scoop. We fished 10-20 feet looking for weeds but couldn't dibd much. We had a ton of largemouth and pike action, probably around 15 largemouths and 7 pike. All bass small 10-14 inches, all pike middle to upper teens except on 24.5 incher. We attempted to panfish but could not locate and willing panfish. Had several marks but no takers. Bass n pike hit a mix of Rosie reds, large fatheads, and small to medium shiners. We attempted panfish with waxies and plastics.

Went out a couple weeks ago on the chain during the free fishing weekend. Lots of folks out on the chain. I had one flag fly, but was a hit and run. These kids next to me had 3 flags while I was standing there! The ice was about 14" a couple weeks ago.

Anyone have any current ice reports they can share?

Thanks

Hi All-

Does anyone have any recent ice depths for Dake? Also, from anyone's experience, is the potential slight warm up over the next few days and mainly Saturday concerning for ice safety? I wanted to wait to ask later in the week, but couldn't wait any longer!!

I'm coming up this weekend and wanted to see if anyone has info.

Any bite reports for Dake or Chain?

Thanks in advance.

AP

BullGill, there is a lot of truth to what one of the previous posters wrote. You will be able to find panfish almost anywhere on the chain. Most are small, and every once in a while you get a nice one mixed in. Basically, be prepared to go there with little expectations of slamming a bunch of big ones. My advice would be to do some scouting around on the lakes that you can access. Sometimes they are in weeds, sometimes they aren't and are suspended in 30 ft or deeper. Keep moving until you find'em.

Thanks Stue, I am familiar with that area. I've never gone off of that landing, so just wanted to make sure there was room for parking.

Columbia parking lot is behind the wheelhouse if your familiar with the bar. Right next to scoopers ice cream shop. It has room for 8-10 trucks.

Question to the local people or people that fish these lakes often. I know of the landings on the chain, but which ones are open to walking off of for ice fishing? Which ones have parking?

Here are the ones I'm aware of... Taylor Lake (near Otter creek)(I've used this one) Dake (used it in past, limited parking) Miner (limited parking) Upper Chain (parking) Becker Marine (if it's still called that, and if Bruce still owns it) Columbia (where the Crystal River trips launch from)(this one I'm curious about)

I am always on foot, so my traveling is somewhat limited. Just looking to try new lakes on the chain without getting ticketed, towed, or yelled at. Thanks in advance to anyone that can share any info!
