Moving into/ fixing up my new place on Lake Chetek. Went out late afternoon to cast from shore. Got a Largemouth on a 4 inch Texas Rigged worm. North end, near Chetek bridge

Fished the chain from Saturday afternoon through Monday. We caught about 70+ bass, largest being about 4+ pounds. Average size of bass was about 1 1/2-2 lbs. Also caught 6 northerns, biggest being 10 pounds. All fish caught with plastics; grubs, swimbaits and kreature baits. Bass were very active and so were the northerns. We lost about 4 more northerns from break offs. We were not targeting them, but them seemed to be all around. Strange thing was we didnt catch no walleye.
Had guys at resort next to us who did ok with crappies, quantity wasn't there but quality was.
We have not been targeting them butave been catching them mostly casting jig and minnows with some on slip bob/jig the bigger ones have been coming from shoreline wood and suprising
shallow. We have been seeing crappies hitting the surface in 8feet but they seem to be smaller fish If you find the perch and walleyes are let me know ha ha.
sure is different fishing this year than the last few.
The pike were caught on the south side of the bridge between Prarie and Chetek. The walleye was a surprise and was caught on the shoreline across from Echo Bay Resort. The temps just dropped yesterday and it was a tough day to fish. We were looking for Crappie and bluegill but only got 2 bluegill.

Fishing was a bit slow. We were looking for Crappie and only caught some pike, walleye and largemouth Bass. Didn't have a tape measure for the pike. But I'm sure one was over the 26" minimum. Caught one a spinnerbait and the other on a jig and twister tail. Also picked up a 19" walleye on a spinnerbait.
