Targeted Species: Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike

The boat traffic has been pretty heavy on the Chain Of Lakes, but that doesnt seem to stop the fish from biting. The few trips have actually started to produce some bigger size smallmouth and largemouth bass. We managed to have several double headers and one point made 4 cast and caught 4 smallies in a row. Also managed to find a few bonus Nothern Pike and caught another WARMOUTH this week.

Baits: So Finesse is the name of the game right now. Anything slow moving like the Zman Ned Rigs, Small 2" Tubes, Wacky Worms have been producing some good catches. The fish are feeding heavily on Crawfish, so anything that looks like a crawfish is a great choice bait.

Depths: There really wasnt any consistent depth zone. Anywhere from 2' to 12' is where most fish where being caught. Bigger fish where coming from the deeper drop offs.

We caught 32 Bass, 2 Northern Pike a few Largemouth and Warmouth.. The Fishing should start to pick up even more in the coming weeks with the night time air temps dropping just a little bit.

So fishing the Waupaca Chain of Lakes always produces some consistent action. Lots of Smallmouth Bass, Largemout Bass and a few Northern Pike.

Best choice of baits have been things like Zman Ned Rigs, Smaller size tubes. If your good at skipping baits, targeting certain docks have some bigger largemouth bass.

Finding deeper weed edges have been producing bigger size bass.

The last trip I had 2 kids with and they had a blast, we kept track and caught 36 bass in about 4 hours and even caught a rare Warmouth. Thats the 3rd one that I caught on the Waupaca Chain of Lakes.

FYI, the Wally World fisharee is on for Saturday, but per the organizer, he will not be plowing roads this year. He has been finding 11” of ice consistently, but still some soft areas over springs. One large area is on Sunset lake where a truck and shack went thru last Sunday and SUNK has said there is not yet enough ice to retrieve it. STAY AWAY from the area if you see it as there was still water seeping up all around it due to aerators and the sunken island. In general there is a lot of slush under the snow so travel with only good four wheel drive is a must.

Fished on McCrossen on the west side, where depth is 65ft, from about 11am to 2pm, then a little from 530pm to 645pm. It was snowing steadily all day and didn’t have much luck. Tip ups with fat heads, jigged with red spikes and wax. 

Going to try mid, and east side tomorrow if I can stay warm long enough on the walk out.

Was thinking about doing some fishing on either Dake or Miner lake, was wondering if there is any bad spots of ice i should be careful of as ive never fished the chain before Ive always have been told the ice is to sketchy to fish it. And is one lake better than the otherfor pike and panfish? Feel free to p.m me as any imfo would be appreciated.i have been reading the DNR maps but there really not up to date. thanks!

Doc, they stopped regular stocking of muskies in the late 70s I believe. The last one I caught was somewhere around 1992. Occasionally you hear things about a big muskie being caught or seen. I inquired with a biologist at the Fish Hatchery in Wild Rose and was told they occasionally dump some of their large brood stock fish in the Chain because it is so close. Mostly musky and brown trout. I would not consider it a fishable population by any means though.

I went bass fishing a few months back on the south side of the chain and had consistent action. However, I had two muskie follows (both fish around 40 inches). Is there a decent population of fish out here, or was it just a fluke? I haven't really heard much about the muskie population. I was just curious. Thanks!
