wale what part of the country do you plan to stay? ive seen big chetek, chetek chain, and turtle flambeau. These are all fine places to camp and fish. However you might get better info if people thought you were actually going to stay where your inquiring.

Just a though. I myself would stay on the north end of TFF. great camp sites and awesome fishing in the fall.

Well the day on the chain went really well. Lake Country Marina Set us up with the Pontoon and i was really happy with the whole rig. We started out on chetek off flynns. Got a couple crappie and then it pooped out. Went up to prairie just north of madonna island. we did ok there getting crappie gills and a couple perch. after messin around on prairie for a couple hours we zipped down to pokegama. on pokegama we fished between the island and shore in that little saddle area where we got a handful of crappie.

To end the day we went back to chetek and moved about 300 yards east of flynns right along the shore. we set up in about 8 feet of water and got onto the fish pretty good. got lots of LM bass crappie and gills with a couple really nice perch too.

Crappie ran pretty short for the most part. Maybe a couple around 10 inches. The gills ran pretty nice on chetek and prairie. My wife got one bull just shy of 10 inches. really really nice gill.

I was pretty happy with the size of the large mouth we caught as well. we got several around 16-18 inches.

Stay safe and Good fishin!!

Lake Hallie - Also..... Try casting a Heddon's Moss Boss (Imitation frog - I prefer Black) on any of the lily padded bays. Just crawl it across the pads going through the holes, stopping intermittantly. Watch the explosion on the pause. Wait a second or two for the hawg to inhale it..... Then SET! Use some heavier line though because of the soupy conditions. My son's and I have had great success and wild action there on the chain. What a blast!!!!!

P.S. Sharpen the hook out of the package - every little bit helps!

Have a camper on prairie and I'm trying to get my son into bass fishing. Someone said to try underwater bogs on the very north end of prairie. Does anyone know where these are? By wolfs den?

Hey guys im going to do something i swore id never do.... im renting a pontoon and going to float my entire broad for the day. 14 19 and 20. plus the wife and myself. If this is my last post you will know why. I means i did a full anchor drop on myself OR i swam to shore and hitch hiked north on 53 until i reach canada.

Having said that, has anyone been finding fish on any of the popular haunts? Im going to try off flynns. and out front of Shorewood.

If that isnt poppin for us i thought i try pokegama of the island. there seems to be an crib cluster there.

My last spot looks to be off cartwright point. there seems to be a nice concentration of cribs from multiple years there as well.

Any general info on depths to look for or even what lakes in the chain seem to be producing a little more over the others id love the info.

Thanks in advance for any info you provide. Ill be providing a full report minus the obligatory cursing of course.

Thanks Cronk

We fished friday night, saturday night and all day sunday. Did extremely well on bass, pretty good on northern, and OK on crappies. First weekend in awhile with no walleye, but we primarily fished in less than 8' of water, and I think they moved deeper now. Bass were caught on jig and leeches, spinners and crankbaits. Northern all on spinners. Crappies were not of size, but had good numbers and we used cubby jigs.

Looking for any fishing advice for fishing panfish on the chain. (areas to fish, bait to use, depths...basically anything would be awesome) I will be staying in Chetek in a rental cabin on Pogegama the 11th and 12th of this month. Any advice would be appreciated by both me and my wife. Thanks!
