Anyone been out recently? Heading to the chain over Memorial Day weekend. I'll be fishing walleye, crappie, bass, musky and maybe some pan fish. Two years ago absolutely crushed the bass and crappie, last year not so much. Any advice would be appreciated!

I fished the Chain on Tuesday.  Had to hunt to find walleyes.  They weren't in the normal spots that I fish...shallow wood.  Tons of small pike were, and they were thick and annoying.  Went to find some weeds, weren't a lot of them coming up yet.  But, when you found some with a little green on them, that was where I found the walleyes.

Water was 51 degrees at the surface, 48 degrees 2 feet down.  She's still really cold.

Best fishing is about a week away, I'd imagine.

Anyone been out fishing on the chain or close by the area? Plan on doing some fishing next week and was wondering if anything is picking up yet?

The ice was out by April 10th. No fishing report yet. Last weekend there was a couple inches of snow but it melted by the end of the weekend.

I just booked a trip to the Cisco chain for the 2nd week in May. I've fished the chain a couple of times but later in the year for Musky. Any tips on which lakes would be best for smallies or walleye??

We were up 3 weeks ago and the fishing was spotty. Conditions were amazingly good, 12-13" of ice. We spent a few days on Big Lake, took a bit to find eyes, but we did find a few and all of them came in saddles and narrows in about 20 fow.

I'm heading back up next wed for a long weekend.
