Fished the Fox Chain today. Bass bite is on fire. Poppers, frogs, senkos, swimjigs, and craws were all productive although the topwater bite completely died in the afternoon. No huge fish, but action was hot.Probably boated 50-60 fish.

You do have the chain dialed in. Was out yesterday for my first shake down run of the year. Everything seemed to work fine. Now to get out and catch some of those babies.

You need to get out more this year. The walleye guys have been doing a lot of trolling on the river just south of Pistakee.

Good idea. The only problem I had was my kicker was not idling down as it should. I could get it to 2mph, but at 1.5 it ran rough and wanted to die. Before I dive into it, I put fresh gas in it to see if that helps. The gas now is 2 years old. Keep your fingers crossed.

Hey old friend. I see you were out killing it on the chain, well done. I dabbled out there on the 3rd and bite was hot and cold. Lots of largemouth, hooked a giant pike, swing and a miss at the boat by a real nice walleye. They only wanted lipless cranks. Had trouble with plastics other than one I picked up on a rage craw.

2sac, anything interesting on the chain? Hoping to get out next Wed or Thur. Not sure if I will hit the chain or Geneva. What do you think?
Haven't been there since I posted this report. I'm heading out tomorrow, I'll let you know
