Catching some nice gills drifting deeper water basins in both Chetek and Prairie. Pokey not so much. Fish are scattered but if you fish slow and smart you will catch some pig gills. Small spoons and jigs working for me. Tip with either larva or Powerbait/Gulp type stuff. Tube out fishing hair jigs for me...
Heading up Thursday. First time on this lake and I only have 3.5 days to fish with my wife and another couple. Can anyone point me in the right direction. PM if needed. Appreciate any information you would be willing to pass on.
Yesterday proved better fishing. Took some nice gills across from echo bay on blk/wht and purple/wht flu flus. Caught around 20 with 6 keepers.
Picked up some crappie in pokegema in a bay just before you enter the ojaski nobwake zone - black glitter ratso.
You have to work got it but at least they are starting to bite. Hope it holds. Unfortunately we are heading home tomorrow..so good luck all!
Been up here since August 19th. Fishing hasn't been good. What panfish bite are small. We are marking tons, but nothing seems to be working well... chicken feathers, ratso, flu-flu, mighty mites, all tipped with waxies, red worms, fishing minnows with bobbers. Sister island produced a few nice crappies... pulled a 2lb bass near echo bay. My kid lost a 28 - 30 inch northern below the dam. That's been about it. I figure there haven't been many posts because it is slow. Always seems to have a year like this every few years. Well this us that year. To sum it up, we've kept 8 fish.

I am heading up to Chetek next week. I have not seen many reports about fishing.We usually drift around Sister island-Elkrin Bay-Burmhas island. Can anybody tell if they are biting in these areas. What are you catching them on? We came up this spring and had very little luck hoping to do better this time.

Anyone doing any fishing on the Chain lately? Very quiet and no reports. Looking to get back up there the end of Sept. It is always nice to hear from you folks that are up fishing and doing what I wish I was doing along with you.
