Hi, I am fairly new to ice fishing especially to the Chain of Lakes. I plan on heading out to the Chain this weekend and looking for some advice. I do not expect to be informed about someone's secret spots or techniques, just looking for some general tips and advice on which lakes and areas I should target. Any advice will be greatly appreciated, thank you. Please P.M. if necessary, thank you once again.

I went out on Thursday. I was fishing from shore by the small park near the train station. I spent about 2 hours fishing with minnows and a small rapala. Didn't get a single bite. I talked to a guy fishing for channel cat's and he had no luck either. I guess it's still a little to early to go fishing.

March 2 Mineola bay followed some guys out about 400 yds straight out from the hotel 8-9 FOW. Marked fish as soon as the Vex went in. Caught the end of a white bass school and then the drum moved in. 8 whites largest 11" and 10 drum largest 16" plus a dink crappie. Fished 8:30am to 1:00pm. Minnows and 1/16 swedish pimple tipped with a waxie tight to the bottom. All in all a good day. Tough walk with snow and slush but worth it.

Hey guys, wasn't able to get on fox lake. The launch at Mineola was shot. A heave pushed up onto the launch and there was broken ice/water 12 feet out. Ice also soft all the way along the seawall.
