Thanks Kingfisher,  we'll check with the bait shop, and will be fishing for panfish, pike & walleye. We fish out of an older brown  Crestliner and hope to meet you on the water!

We are staying at Shorewood Resort. 


Thanks King, We are anticipating fishing for crappies one day and hopefully if all goes well having a fish fry.  Also going to try for some bass and pike.  Hopefully with weather being upper 60's that will help.

Dave and css

There are several sportshop and bait stores as you get to town.

Keg and Kork just as you get off 53 and Rod and Gun downtown.

Things should be heating up with the fish.  Hope to get out tomorrow, Friday and the weekend to drift for some crappies and gills.  They have been running nice size this year.  Good luck

CCSPD,

 Where are you staying? I'm headed up for fishing this next week, and we are staying at Echo Bay Resort. Interested in learning Chetek lake too as I never fished it before. Hopefully there is a bait shop or sporting goods store in town to ask for some basic information. Good luck to you.

Heading up here this weekend.  Any tips or current trends?  First time fishing this body of water.  Any updates would be greatly appreciated.  Live bait for game-fish? Plastics? Any preference/colors?

We fished most of the day Saturday for panfish. We tried drifting out in deeper water, with minimal success. We had much better luck fishing the downed trees right up against shore. Caught 25 crappies, 15 were keeper size.

was out Thursday for a couple hours with the wife.  fished 12 to 15 ft in Chetek where we got the gills.  Perch and one crappie in Ten Mile.  Using black/yellow feather jigs tipped with crappie nibbles and shot about 10 inches up from the jig.  Drop to bottom and crank up 1 to two turns.

I catch a fair amount of 14-15 inch walleyes and one 3-4 pounder earlier this summer while fishing a crawler near bottom for pannies. Usually near points or other submerged structure. No real hot spot just catch them scattered all over. Always on Prairie.

Any walleye reports on the chain?  Be up this weekend after walleye.  Haven't fished chain in over a year and I know they work hard on rebuilding the walleye fishery. Tried to hire a guide for at least one day of the three but no responses from the two I tried so must be booked.  Got good electronics if I could just get a tip on a spot to start.  I will work the usual gravel bars and weed edges and will report successes ( and failures)
