Was on the Chain all last week. Walleyes were not real interested in my jigs with leeches. Caught a few on rapalas drug behind the boat, all in the evening. Had better luck with Northern, caught 5 in the 3 to 4 pound class. Caught a few snakes of course as well. Caught the northern in 12-18 ft. with jigs and worms, or jigs and leeches. Caught one on a chartreuse rapala. Weather was nice. Caught northerns in the morning before noon and walleye between 7 and 10PM. Dagget Lake produced a couple of Northern, as did Cross Lake. Whitefish produced a couple of walleye. Little Pine produced one decent Northern, around 4 lbs. Reluctantly didn't make it into Trout this year. Most of the fish marked were stacked vertically along major drop-offs.
the Walleye should start biting a little later in the season That chain has always been tough for them this time of the year. try the deep side of the weeds were the current comes into Crosslake that has allways been a great spot.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
