Heading to the chain on the 4th. Been kind of quiet on this forum the last few days. Anyone know if the crappie spawn is over? How's the bite been. Thanks

for our first trip out this year it was not bad.  caught 6 eyes with two legal, 10 nice crappies and 7 nice gills.  Also caught two bass 13 and 15.  Most everything caught with leeches and slip bobber in 4 to 7 ft of water in one spot in Pokegama.  Understand gills are doing great in Ten Mile.

Crappie Killer - do you think the crappie are running the same size as last spring?  My memory of last years 2015 crappie family had them running considerably smaller than 2014.  Not that it matters in the overall scheme, just curious.  Hope everone enjoys a great summer in Chetek and the folks on wave runners are more considerate of those fishing.

Started at daylight Sunday trolling crawler harness' and raps for walleye with no luck. Switched to slip floating and caught some panfish in 3-5 fow on a bare gold hook tipped with minnow or a chunk of crawler. Took a few for a two person meal, the rest went back.
