On Friday I was on the top of the point for a while but it was windy. Went up to Prarie Lake didn't catch but 1 bluegill and 1 bass. We pulled out of Chetek around 8am in Saturday. I saw the black Lund on a trailer in town. So I think they must have left also.
Been up here for the week fishing. I like to try different things. So, we were trolling for walleye in Pokegama Lake. We start making our fist pass and pass a boater and his buddy in their fancy expensive looking black Lund boat. He asks me if I catch fish fishing THAT way? I politely say it's out first pass. We will see. As we leave his area and can see him talking to his buddy and kinda laughing. We didn't catch any walleye there but we did catch a bunch of crappie. The next day we head back there and are moving around jigging for crappie. I see this same guy and his buddy slowly pass us by going across Pokegama lake. As he gets closer he looks at us the whole way by shaking his head and laughing. What an a$$. Maybe he didn't like the vinyl "Crappie Slayer" wrap the previous owner put on my boat. We watched him go across the lake and tie his boat up at the Morningside Resort. What is it about people that think they are better than others? I love my 2006 Alumacraft Navigator 165 CS. And you know what? We caught lots of fish this week. Crappie, Pike, Walleye, Dogfish, Bluegill, LM Bass. So take your "better than you" attitude elsewhere. I just had to spout off because it really ticked me off.

I had another excellent fall trip in the chain from 9/8 thru 9/14. Fishing was red hot at the start of the trip and slowed a little when the weather heated up on Tuesday. We were still able to catch fish each day but not at the rate of Sunday and Monday.when just about anything you hung in the water caught fish. As usual 1/64 oz jigs tipped with waxies or gulp minnows fished above structure filled the livewell. Orange was the best color this trip although other colors also worked at times. Fishing should really pick up in the next few weeks as the weather and water cools.
Had a good couple of days, mostly on Chetek Lake near the big bar. Panfish active drifting with bait about a foot off the bottom in 13 feet or less. Used minnow, white plastics and wax worms. All worked. Perch seemed to prefer wax worms on or very near the bottom. Good luck to all.
