Anyone know how thick the ice is? I was hoping to maybe get out this weekend.

Are there any walleye guides for this chain?

You used to be able to get on at that bar on the south side.  I believe it's called Sugarbush.  They always had a boat landing there.

Hmm thanks for the responses. I was worried about bad ice in that narrow area from McCann too. Guess not. Good tho know. Im surprised there isn't any type of access on Chain.

Hey Charipar Bros that landing on McCann requires a 4wd most of the winter doesnt it? Ive driven by a few times but from the road it looks like quite a steep grade. Thats the only thing thats kept my from fishing McCann. Bad bad back from having too much fun as a young fella.

Drive on from McCann Lake landing. Do not drive thru any channels from Island or Clear Lake-likely unsafe even late winter

Fished Chain today for the first time. Landed a bunch of bass, mostly small. Biggest largemouth was 16" and a real nice 17" smallmouth. Lots of bluegills but on the small side. Water was back down in the mid 60s. Not many people out on the lake which was nice. 

I'd like to try it in the winter. Since there is not a boat landing on Chain where can you access and can you drive on there? Hawks Bar?

Been out on the chain the past few days, crappie bite has been slow but good sized fish when they do bite. Perch bite has been super hot for numbers with a few nicer ones but alot of sorting. Overall been pretty decent fishing so far. Ice is 4-6 inches in the places I have drilled. Many areas on the chain still look pretty sketchy though so be careful for sure.

Tough weekend on the chain for numbers but the size of the crappies I did catch made up for it. Didnt try my usual spot on the chain as ice still looked a little sketchy that way. Here are my two biggest from the weekend.

Was on McCann most of the day Saturday, ice was anywhere from 2 - 4+ inches. We were extremely cautious and stayed close to Backwoods Resort but noticed others venturing out much farther without too much concern. Had a good day, we were targeting Crappies and for the most part they were only curious in our presentations but we caught enough to stick around... I would continue to use caution anywhere on the chain if you decide to head out. Good fishin to ya and stay safe!
