is it true the talk is going down to a 10 panfish limit on chetek chain?
fished the chain last week and our group had the worst catch ever. the weather might have contributed to the poor numbers, and with the speeding boats and jet skies flying all over Prairie lake it was difficult to float through the schools. What we did catch were nice size crappies, but nothing at the 12" range reported. Most were still a respectable 10- 11" range. plastic tube jigs in chartreuse, or red head jigs with a blue and silver triple ripple worked better than anything. we couldn't get bites tipping jigs with waxies or crappie nibbles.
Good morning on the north end of Prairie. Fished 2 hours and kept a mixed bag of 14 fish. 5-6 inches of ice.
Just came back from a week stay on Chetek lake we had some sucsess with bass and we cought about 30 nice size crappies they were cought on black and green jigs and bass were cought on Texas rig worms it was hot
great fishing on the whole chain, water gets to be like pea soup by july
ITS BEEN 16 YEARS SINCE I VISITED THE LAKE. NOTHING HAS CHANGED STILL GREAT FISHING. GREAT LAKE FOR KIDS AND BEGINNERS. WOULD RECOMMED THIS LAKE TO ANYONE.
BACK TO CHETEK LAST YEAR, ITS BEEN 16 YEARS. THE WHOLE FAMILY HAD A GREAT VACATION. FISH WERE IN THE SAME PLACES. GREAT LAKE FOR KIDS AND NOVICE FISHERPEOPLE. IT SEEMS NOT TO MATTER WHAT TIME OF YEAR YOU GO UP.
I have been fishing this lake for over 25 years now, and I have never had better all around fishing anywhere in the country. From loads of crappies to turbo sunnies,plentiful largemouth and secret spots for killer smallies, just my dream vacation... oh yeah walleyes r real plentiful if you know hoe to get at em
Awesome week once again Great place for variety of fish
great lakes, abundance of different species. Friendly community.
My family and I vacation on lake chetek for the first time in 2005. After many years of fishing in minn I can not tell you how much we enjoyed, the town people the owners of lazy achers,and fishing on the chain
The lake has a good large mouth population. Produces big fish.
Fished the chain for 20 yrs now and there is a reason we keep coming back. Besides the good fishing the whole town is very friendly and helpful. Got a 23 inch 7.5 lb Bass on the wall I got in northern Pokegama in 1989
Highly recommended ! Our family vacation spot for +20 years. Outstanding for recreational fun (fishing, boating, water skiing).
Good Crappie population, Walleyes are plentiful but small.
Excellent For Largemouth! Just Gotta´ Know Where And How To Fish.
Green Soup In June And July, To Many Tournaments On It Too.
Some Panfish-But Poor Gamefish Populations. Very Weedy Conditions.
Great Panfish Lake As Well As Good Walley And Northerns. Great Family Vacation Spot.
