fished prarie lake all last week. lots of crappies to catch, most on the small side, but did catch some very nice ones too. not to many bluegill caught, largest came in at 9.5" with most of the gills in the 7" size. drift jigged with mini mites and waxworm/leech combo. fishing around the cribs provided the best action. stayed at the Lakeview resort again this year and rebooked for next year too.

Hey Bigbluetruck,

CRIMON HUE RESORT for your next Chetek trip. We have been going to Chetek since 1972 and I agree with some other posts I read the people in town are friendly. If you decide to give it another try let me know and I would be happy to pass along some sight seeing things within a 30-40 minute drive and some fishing spots & techniques that have been successful for us.

Sorry you had a bum stay at Shorewood with the hippies. My cousins used to stay there but the kids weren't allowed to walk on the grass so that wasn't much of a vacation. They are an interesting couple to say the least!

The crappie fishing the last 2 weeks of June was great!

We did very well last week. Hard not to catch fish. Drifting in 12-16' of water on prairie lake north and south of Burnhams island. Use mini mite jigs or similar baits.

pfleuger, did you check with the inn? Lots of boats have based out of there for tournaments so i would think there are outlets. give them a call.

Headed to chetek in the middle of July, staying at the inn of chetek. Was wondering if anyone knows if they have electric hook up outside to charge boat battery or if anyone know as to were I would be able to do this. Or would offer e some electricity for a couple bucks or case of beer. Lol I'm afraid my electronics won't last 3 days.

Hey Bigbluetruck

I am getting ready to head to Chetek Saturday (from Chicago), so I checked this thread to see how fishing was going. When I saw your post, I was glad to see that the crappies are biting. When I saw that you stayed at the Shorewood, I KNEW that you had a horror story to tell. My extended family has been going to Chetek every year for the last twenty, and when we started out, we stayed at a couple of different resorts until we found one that had enough cabins for us, and we all liked. One of those years was "the Shorewood year". Whenever someone in our group brings it up, we laugh hysterically about how poorly that place is run, and how completely inhospitable the host and hostess are. We learned a painful lesson in our stay there, but we still get a good laugh about those wretched people.

I do find it hard to believe that you did not meet welcoming and friendly people in town, because that is one of the things that we all love about that place. Visiting the Chetek Bakery is a highlight by itself because the people are so nice, and the baked goods are fantastic. And we have been going long enough that we have figured out where to go and what to do in the area, so nobody ends up bored.

Don't give up on Chetek, the lakes are great, the people are nice and it is a truly great place for a family vacation. You just need to find a different resort, because the Shorewood is the pits.

I sure hope that the crappie bite is still happening when I get out on the water Sunday. I'd love to spend Sunday afternoon cleaning fish, but regardless, I know we will have a great time.
