Thorsten-i found an article from last years' Chetek Alert newspaper; last years Chetek firemans fishing contest was held on January 21, 2013. my guess would be it would be held close to the same weekend. i would say nothing works better than making a phone call Cool

Hey guys, a friend of mine lost a blue bag with a couple jig rods yesterday on Mud Lake. If anyone found it please message me. I'm sure he'll pay a reward for it.

Thanks Dan

Hey guys i plan on headin up to chetek and try out front of Gilligans. I heard they get the occasional walleye and some crappies. my question was about ice conditions. How did the ice fair over the last few days. warm weather and rain. Did she hold her own? still good to walk?

Has anyone heard if / when the Firemans ice fishing contest is this winter? Can't seem to find any mention of it on the interweb.

Decided to change it up a bit today. Wanted to go and see if there was any type of mid day bite going on and I'm glad I did. Went out on the south end of prairie and drilled two holes and those were all I needed. As soon as I put the vexilar in the water I was showing fish about 2 ft from the bottom. Caught a limit of nice gills 8-9 inch fish with a 3 crappies mixed in. Also got 1 jumbo perch measured 11 3/4. Everything was caught on a pink flirty girty with waxie. No part of the hook could be showing, if it was they would come and look and swim away. I've found over the last 7-8 years fish on prairie seem to bite all day until the first big snowfall and it seems to be holding true again this year. 10 fow.

Ice Depth: 10" Conditions: Foggy Air Temp: 41° - 45° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Just a heads up. I forgot to mention when i was on ojaski saturday they were driving out. There were maybe half dozen vehicles. All the way up to full size crew cabs. I didnt measure the ice but i honestly did NOT think there was over 10 inches.

Lots of ATVs as well. Talked to an older fella that lives on the lake and he was floored that they were driving out. You could see water surge up all the holes when someone drove within 50-75 yards. Stay safe out there guys!

As for ice by Gilligans, there is 8-10 inches in places. There have been vehicles on the ice with those people using tip-ups. Fishing has been slow with 7-8 inch crappie typical. I've seen some pike and a couple near 20 inch eyes near the old supper club landing.

Fished Ojaski out from the landing. 9-11 feet of water. Caught alot of fish but were running to the small side. Did get about 5-6 really nice blue gills. By far the best lure today was a gold tungsten with either a By Baits pearl super minnow or white mayfly. Last hour of light the fish were on a tear.

For the tip up fisherman out there i did see several really nice northern caught as well as lorgemouth. Northern were around 30-34 inches id guess.
