There are cribs on the east side of Island and south of the boat landing in about 18 fow water. Also cribs on the southern shore of McCann and on Chain along the shoreline that backwoods is on those are to the west of Backwoods. This is probably just me but on that body of water I only catch small bluegill on cribs, maybe just my bad luck

There are a few marked on the Navionics map, other than that there isn't a map specifically showing cribs that I know of. The ones on Navionics aren't entirely accurate either.

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone knows where a guy could pick up a crib map for the chain. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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?
