Horseshoe chain of lakes

Postby deb4ducks » Wed Sep 05, 2012 6:42 pm

Hey I am probably posting this in the wrong spot but I was hoping to find someone who has hunted the chain of lakes. It will be my first in that area and was hoping for some helpful info, thanks.

be careful, lots of rocks and shallow spots that can ruin a prop.

Never hunted it but haing lived in Watkins for a couple years I can tell you that the landing is PACKED early in Cold Spring early on opener. I think they do well, but I would scout and mark spots, both for shallow water and for at least a dozen spots as you may end up using your " last resort". Unless you plan on camping...
Quoted from my wife while I am tapping on my iPad, "Are you talking about ducks again?"
Me, "Yep".

I have a camper at the resort "Cozy Corners" and the boat will be at the dock the night before so there will be no fighting to get it in.............

lots of traffic out there. can be good especially during dry years when the pot holes dry up... but you are dealing with tons of "cidiots"

I cant give you my really good spots cause I got people slowly moving in on them but if you like mud you can go to lake hennery, not far from there, always pull a couple ducks off there, I can give you one spot advice and keep in mind this was years ago but on long lake near cozy corners I believe? across the way there are 2 little ponds connected to the lake that on good years u can get their by boat, woodies like them spots and so do small groups of mallards teal too, If you ever see a green 95 Silverado down that way with the ugliest sum bitch you ever seen next to it, swing over and say hi.
