Ed - I cant help with the fishing questions as I dont fish much unless the water is frozen. The chain is pretty well known for panfish but I know people catch bass, northern and a few walleyes.

As far as night life, Gilligans and Reds are the two most popular places on the water but there are lots of small resorts that are fun. I hear they are re-opening The Pokegama Inn this spring. I hope they improve the atmosphere there, it is a really nice place but has always been kind of boring. Walking to nightlife really depends on where you are staying. I dont think there is a taxi in town anymore.

Good Morning Everyone, I will be coming up for a trip May 31st for a few days. It will be my first time up on the chain and we will be targeting all fish that bite the hook. Am wondering if there are any general pointers that can be helpful? Certain baits or lures have a tendency to work better than others? Any lakes to stay away from?

Also what's the nightlife like? We usually like to park the vehicles once we get there and walk or take taxi's anywhere we go. Is there a recommended taxi company that services the area or any other form of public trans? Thanks,

FISHING REPORT

Ice Depth: 32" Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 41° - 45° F
Fishing has been really slow lately on Prairie and Pokegama. Managed to keep four only four nice gills on Prairie one day in about four hours. Tried Pokegama the next day and never saw a fish on the camera for three hours. The little bite that there is is very late within the last hour before dark. The ice is getting very soft on top and you have to be careful not to step in any holes that have widened out from the water running in them. Definitely wouldn't be driving out there anymore even though there is still over 30" of ice.

FISHING REPORT

Ice Depth: 36" Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 41° - 45° F
Went on Chetek last Saturday at the airport landing and drilled holes here and there out to Silver Birch, fishing as we went. From noon until 6:00, only marked fish if we jigged them up. The bite was slow, only caught a half a dozen fish. There was over 3 feet of ice out there, with about 12 inches of frozen slush and then the rest solid ice. If the sun melts the slush it will be hard walking, but I only had between 1 to 4 inches left when drilling holes on the auger. It will be a while until we have open water.

Hey guys, im hoping to get on the ice a couple more times this year but things are getting awful squishy south of eau Claire so my only option is north. Are they still going out of veterans on the north end of prairie? Anyone have any thoughts on a decent spot to go out that's still solid?

Im not lookin for a bite, I just want to stay dry. I cant swim for crap in the summer and I don't think winter would be any better.

Thanks guys

I'm trying to take a group of boy scouts out this coming weekend. Trying to decide where they will have the best luck. Does anyone have a recent report here or any other lakes for that matter.

thanks chubbs , ya with this goofy weather this year maybe it will be July before the ice goes out. last yr was the first time in our 29 yrs that there was ice on opening. sat out is sleet, rain and snow one year but the ice was out. in 1989 I got a 24 inch large mouth up by kreki kingdom and 2006 my brother in law hooked a 47 inch northern, took a pic and threw him back so he is still there maybe for the pickin

Yes the ice is thicker... As far as as how it will be on may 10th or when it will be off depends on weather,and nobody can predict that.
