JBOUT thank you very much! That is the information I was looking for and more. I really appreciate it. Have a good one!
Basshogin, The Phillips chain is a shallow stained flowage. Variety of species to catch on all lakes. Weeds and wood will be the most structure. Mostly muck bottom. Resorts might have and city beach have swimming and a sand bar on long. Duroy and Wilson have the most weeds to fish, Long has plenty of cribs and will have the most skiers and pleasure boaters. The dam for the chain is on Long. You want to know where you are going on plane when on Duroy and Wilson. Also when going through the elk river going from Elk to Long stay to the north side of the buoy by the hwy 13 bridge it marks an old roller dam on the south side of the river. Stop in to Ross' sport shop and Elk river rods when in town. They will get you in the right direction.
Thinking about bringing the family up in the summer. I have two young children. Does this lake have decent panfish? Also wondering if there are good numbers of bass and pike present. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
We were in the phillips area today. Not a fishing report, but a ice report. The chain is free of ice. Went over to Solberg, probably 1/2 to 2/3 ice free. A good northwest wind tomorrow night should take care of the rest. Didn't get to Soo with W closed.
They both exist throughout the chain, but more largemoiths in Wilson and smallmouth in Long
Will be up in vacation here soon. Never fished here before and wanting to give it a try. Just curious on bass population? Largemouth or smallmouth?
All Lakes on the Chain are Ice Free!
Looking for a little help as my parents recently moved to Phillips and I am bringing up the kids in two weeks. Any direction on places to try for northern action on tip-ups with some panfish would be much appreciated.
Drove past the lake on W today and saw a few people out. How is the ice fishing on this chain?
