Thanks pbitschura, I think I understand you.  It is just directly south of Northland Resort, a little peninsula?  Thanks again for taking the time to answer.

Fished on Praire yesterday, caught a bunch of nice sized fish on shallow and deep structure. Talked with a bunch of people that fished prairie and they said nothing was biting? Wrong bait? Minnows are all I had cause I forgot the leeches, gulp, and waxies. The bass are in deeper water/Structure. Along with walleye, and drifting out in front of the swimming island towards the middle of prairie always does good for walleye and panfish.

Good fishing

Flyn's Point is on the east shore of Chetek Lake where it juts to the east on the south end of the lake. Was that clear?

Left there yesterday and the algae bloom was pretty bad all over the chain. Didn't slow us down and the fish didn't mind. But it was like fishing pea soup most of the time. Had to jump in water once to unwrap a rope that got around the prop......ended up with swimmers itch and was scratching my self silly until I made the run into town to get cream for it. Lady at the drug store said she would never swim in chetek when I asked what do the locals use for the condition........enough said

When i was up there it wasnt terrible. Keep in mind it was really windy though so it may have been churned up some.

No one is going to confuse chetek for being clear water...... but i have seen it much worse. With this heat who knows. can always call a local bait shop to get the straight dope.

Perfect!  That's all I am worried about is a little action for them for a couple hours a day! Appreciate the report, Can't wait to get up there!  Is the algea bloom pretty bad yet with the hot weather?

Late report from monday. We fished chetek in the nasty wind and didnt do a whole lot until we started drifting the flat out front of the marina. Then we got into fish pretty steady. Got one walleye that was 19 inches a bunch of gills and crappie. only 1 perch. all fish came on crawler chunks or a gulp minnow on a 1/16oz jig. color didnt matter.

As for finding panfish for the kiddies i would still fish the islands mid way up prairie. thats pretty easy picking and seems to always produce fish summer or winter. No guarantees on size but the numbers are good.

Stay safe and good fishin!!

Heading up on Sat. with our family. Last time up 1/16th oz. road runners and 1/32 oz slurpies small fry tubes worked well.  Anyone tried these n the Chain, or do the smaller jigs with the waxies work best?  

Have two four year old daughters that are really getting into fishing. Anywhere on the chain that would be good to take them for some gills, not asking for exact loc. but just a general way/area that is good for kids to fish!  We are staying at Oak Grove and was also wondering if the kids can swim there or if the algae bloom is coming on strong?  

Thanks!!!!
