I we'll be staying on Dam Lake this coming week with the family.  I will be primarily fishing Muskies and maybe a few walleyes or crappies. Was wondering if there is recent reports or couple pointers to get us started. Thanks in advance.

A lot of boat traffic last evening but none the less worth the trip.  I have been using some 2.5" crank baits in 7 to 9 feet of water.  I have been catching less crappie however switching to the larger bait, crappie maxx, the size is consistently 10" and above.  That is fine with me. Dark colors with a white or orange belly seems the best.  Also boated a 20" smallmouth that was in the weeds feeding.  I put one on its nose and had a strike.  About five casts later it hit again and this time I boated it.  Measured it snapped a couple of pics and back it went.  What a blast.

If you like crappie then the Sugar Camp Chain is the place to be.  Seven to nine feet of water casting to the weed beds and weed points with Beetle spins and small crank baits.  Thirty to forty in an hour and a half with many in the ten to twelve inch range.  We have some in the fridge so it was catch and release with my thirteen year old son.  Good fishing my friends!

Lots of wind and rain this week. Rained 7 1/2 inches of rain on Sunday. Fish are finnicky. Gills are good size. Crappie are smallish. Both are found in shallow grass and weeds of 2 to 6 feet. Little action on cribs but again slow.

Nice mixed bag today on the Chain. The fish are still scattered on the rocks,cribs and weeds. Slip bobber's tipped with a leech worked best. We caught them in 7-19' if water.

Coming up this weekend for a week long trip staying on Chain lake, first time on this chain. Curious how wide the channel is from Sand lake to Dam lake. Have a 17' Alumacraft Voyageur with 86" beam. Gonna fit?

I agree with that Opinion. One year people are bragging about their limits and the next year they claim fishing sucks. I know it is their right to keep fish. Have lived on the Chain for 13 years and have never taken one fish. There are hardly any Walleyes too.
