Drive from wilderness to bents--10 minutes. Watch out for deer.
Walleye in the woods with minnows and a weedless jig.
No real channel issues. Sand cut between west bay and Morley--just go slow and trim up your motor.
Don't drive too close to any point or island or you will hit a rock--pretty normal caution.
There is a very very good under water topo map of the chain that costs abt $9 and it is sold in the area. The tackle box in LOL will have it. Bents bait shop and wilderness might but wouldn't count on it. If you are going to the chain the first time getting that map is a MUST. Crazy not to get it if you are unfamiliar with the chain.
The tackle box also often has suckers for sale. Great bait for Fall Muskie on the chain.
Vacationland is great place to stay. Owners are the tops. Have stayed there 8 or 9 times.
Try fishing the humps in big lake.
Never caught a northern while Muskie fishing. While bass fishing, yes, though.
Another great place to eat is the bear trap inn on city B on the way to LOL. Loose Moose is also worth the trip--on Hwy 45 south of LOL. Black oak inn is a decent bar to eat at and watch a game, also on Cty B.
Hope this helps you..
I will be there the same weekend. Two guys In a black MirroCraft Dual Impact with 125 Merc. If ou see me wave a hat and if I see it I'll stop and say hello.
