    What I meant is groups with panoptix will start to spank lakes where fish suspend in basins. I never worry about other predators, but I do not like those Cormorants.

    so momma wanted to go to a sunday brunch that meant driving past the chain. the ice is turning dark. the summer access was empty and becker lake looked desserted.

    noone was out on horseshoe and the landing looks bad, however on the other side on cedar island there were 4 trucks out on the ice just out where it opens up into the lake. there were a few out from the landing on eden lake and long lake had 1 small car and a few wheelers out. browns lake had some wheelers out.

    Tim and Glenn, you guys are keeping this post alive! Anyone fished or taken a drive around the chain lately? Headed out there in the next week or 2, wondering what the conditions are like. Bringing a wheeler, but are there more trucks driving out now? How much snow did you get out that way this week?

    I may possibly have a update for you after tomorrow. We have plans to get out someplace tomorrow and the Chain was one of the places we are thinking about Heading. After looking at the weather forecast I’m not sure if we will brave it or not. If we do I’ll post a update.

    Got a update on the chain for you. We accessed the lake at cozy corners on long lake. Someone had plowed a single lane road a long ways down to almost the other end of long. We were able to get off the road and travel most anywhere in a suburban. My guess was 10-13” of snow cover with sold ice under it. No wet or slush spots that we found. The ice was a little less thick than I thought it would be. My guess is in the 12-14” range. There were big ice castles being pulled around so plenty of safe ice. As far as the fishing went, it was a rather tough bite. Managed a few keeper Crappies and sunfish and a decent amount of smaller fish. Lots of lookers. Really had to work to get them to bite. They would come rushing up,at the bait and hit the brakes and then drop back down. A few fish would just crush it but most just looked at the bait. I think lots of these were rather small crappies as we caught some real little ones. I hope this info. Helps you some
