Arrived here on Saturday. Fished a few hours Saturday afternoon and then went out twice in Sunday. We are staying on Prairie lake. Fishing wasn't hot but four of us from our group caught a mixed bag of fish. The panfish were caught drifting 6mm tungsten  ice jigs tipped with Gulp Alive 1 inch minnows or on a single hook and Dancing Rascals worms. Caught the large mouth bass on a Rapala crawdad colored crank bait.

The action has really picked up over the past three weeks or so, and with the water temps on the decline it should only continue to improve. Finding plenty of good perch action in shallow any where from 4-6' of water and look for mud bottom. Use 1/16 oz. jig and minnow and fish vertical while drifting or slow troll.

Crappies are also active in 5-7' of water, fish early and late in the day with minnows. look for suspended fish with your electronics and work the area. Catches of 15 to 20 fish are common the the past couple of weeks.

Northern pike have also been biting, fish the shallow weed lines in bays. They are hitting pretty much anything that moves.

@ Cronk-  Head over to Pokegama and fish the short shoreline between black bass bay and the far channel (the Narrows).  Cast that shoreline W to E and when you get into the channel it drops off pretty good there so you'll be covering quite a bit of structure and different depths.  You're bound to hook up with something.

Yes, because thats the only spot in the entire chain that has 1-2 feet of water with pads in them that hold bass.  Now that I put that spot on lake link, for the 19 people that check this report, (because the chetek chain lake link seems soooooooo active) that spot will now be ruined.  My advice would be to avoid Hayes Bay, since before today it was undiscovered and now its all pressured out of fish.  Good luck finding other spots similar to that one without someone putting it on a fishing community page first.

if a SMART fisherman finds a good spot. they keep their mouth shut. blabbing about a good spot is a sure way to kill it! be responsible and c,p,r and the spot may be good for a long time!

Check out the map that is posted on Chetek.net to see the location of Moose ear.  Great topwater action down there for bass and Northern.  Bass fishing was very good when I was just up there, throwing jerk minnows, and large tube jigs in 6-8 feet of water around structure.  Focus on shoreline trees that are hanging in the water for open water bass.  For topwater, go to moose ear and check out Hayes Bay over in Pokegama.  There is a small island in the back of Hayes bay and its loaded with bass on both sides of it.  Gets pretty shallow (1-2ft) but if you fish those pads at the right time, you'll get quite a few hits.  Good luck
