The state park is one good shore fishing spot. Not sure if ice is taking over.

Does anyone think there will be safe ice by Sunday afternoon in back channels?

Was up on Catherine and Channel today to scout ice. Minimal. Only ice was in sheltered coves. Too much wind. Thin ice extended maybe 50 yards from shore at most. Too much wind for ice to form

This is our last soft water report for the season.  The Northwood fished Lake Marie Saturday morning and Sunday late morning to early afternoon.  We noticed that the previous week live bait wasn't the choice of the stripers, sheep, etc.  So after searching for fish on Saturday, we changed our presentation to artificial bait.  Drifting from 6 - 25 fow we caught and released perch, yellow stripers, many white stripers, many walleyes, a northern, many sheephead, three catfish, many crappies; almost the complete buffet.  No muskies landed for us this weekend.  Plenty of boats were catching plenty of fish.  What a fantastic sight.  The Chain fishery is alive and well.  Thanks for reading as we look forward to some ice fishing.  Expecting grandchild #1; my guide Lars and his wife Megs any day now.  We are very blessed.  Merry Christmas !   Tight lines !   IC

Went out yesterday and had skim ice on Marie in a bunch of places.  Started off deep throwing a new style bait and did well with a lot of whites.  Bite tapered off a bit.  Drifted from 25'-4' and only sporadic action at best.  We ended with two eyes that were both put back for next year.  Quite a few boats out, I counted 11 at one point.  Fish were all over locator but bite died for us around 11.  Not a hit on crawlers only a few on minnows most came on the new bait.  Beautiful day for 12-3-17.  I was telling my friend we should have went out Firday, and luck had it someone said they slammed the eyes on you guessed it....Friday.

Good day on the Chain. Trolled a little and then fished the main basin on Marie. Marked a lot of fish and missed a few on jigging raps. Then headed to the weeds on Channel and caught some nice crappie in 3-5 FOW with a small jig with plastic, and waxie under a bobber. Water level is very low. I will be waiting for the ice now.

Went out fishing again w one of the boys, 10:30am to 3pm.

Got almost a bucket full of panfish...some nice crappies but also bluegills. Some yellow bass & several largies.

Like Chris said, the Chain is healthy...let’s maintain it so we can enjoy it for years to come.

Mostlikely this was the last time we took the boat out this year...but u never know.

Anyway, go out & enjoy God's creation!

Due to ice up later this week, today was probably my last day on the chain for 2017. We had an amazing year and a great past 2 weeks with just under 30 muskies in the past week and a half. This chain is alive and well thanks to great stocking efforts and great catch and release. I will be heading out to the big pond for the reminder of the year and I look forward to seeing everyone at the shows this year. Happy holidays and be safe!!
