Nothing happening on the chain Saturday. A bunch of 3-4" perch and bluegill off the bottom, nothing suspended was interested. Moved on to a different lake by 10am.

Hopefully you kept everything you caught.  Fishing that deep, the mortality rate from Barotrauma is 60-70%. Even if the fish were suspended 10' off the bottom at that depth.

Went out to the Chain this past week, had 13 inches of ice, 1 smaller car and 2 trucks out that we could see, we walked out, easy going with no snow on ice. 

Found Crappie out in 35-40 FOW, had to hole hop to stay on the schools, fish were active from 9-12ish, slowed down after that. Kept 8, all 10.5-12.5 inches, pretty good morning overall. Feel free to check out the video below!

Fished a couple hours each day Saturday and Sunday this past weekend. Had one flag late afternoon along weed edge in about 8 feet of water, caught only one 15-1/4 inch walleye, released of course. Used tip downs in about 15-16 feet of water after marking a few on the bottom, but no takers. Following day, tried to search for deeper water and suspended crappies. Found 30-35 foot depth and marking fish about 6 feet off the bottom, only caught two 11 inch crappies in that period of time, but they're there. We were jigging for them using crappie minnows as well as tip downs.

Ice thickness is 7-8 inches where I was, but I would be very careful as the ice doesn't freeze equally throughout the whole lake.  I felt safe driving my side by side UTV on the ice. There were scattered snowmobiles. Many guys still walking on the ice which is the safest of course.

Good Luck!

About 6 inches of ice where we were fishing...

Tip downs and Jigging crappie minnows in 15 -16 feet of water were successful for many perch, but most were small.

Buddy caught one nice northern pike in about 8 feet of water on a tip up with a large shiner.  Took out over a hundred feet of line in just a few seconds!!

Other buddy caught a tiny walleye...

Some snowmobiles and 4-wheelers out and about on the lake, but I wouldn't feel totally comfortable til we get another cold spell to thicken the ice a little more. 

Looks like a few scattered "dark" spots on the ice that should probably be avoided even on foot.

Be safe!

Anyone been out yet? I'm hoping to get out this weekend, and I am wondering how deep the ice is so far.

Thank you!

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
