Came up from Chicago to enjoy a fantastic weekend with the family and it did not disappoint. Although the fishing was a little slow I did manage some nice catches. Not the greatest lake but definitely not the worst.

Fished Prairie Lake this morning and did not find fish. Did manage 3 bluegill. 1 drifting around Sister Island and 2 just north of Echo bay. Beautiful day out though. Also tried trolling for walleye early on with no takers.

Tough time finding fish this past week end. Saturday only managed a few  small perch and crappies (nothing keeper size). Sunday morning got on some decent size perch put nine in the live well, three of the nine over 10"s. Sunday afternoon it got tough again to find fish.

Went out for a couple hours this evening, nothing happening.

Heading to Chetek for my annual week-long trip with the guys this coming Saturday. I am hoping the gills are getting ready to bite. I usually fish for multi-species. But I'd really like to find a good walleye spot. I've caught a few over the last 3 years but not any numbers...except for Crappie. We usually find the crappie.

I have been fishing mostly on Chetek and some on Ten Mile and Moose Ear.

Crappies are starting in there fall pattern, suspending 5-8' over 12-15' of water. Find schooling fish on the electronics and vertical jig with a 1/16 oz. jig tipped with minnow or plastic. Perch are still producing well in shallow water 3-5'. find a weed edge and work parallel until you find fish then anchor and fish with minnows and small jig or minnow under a bobber. Finding good numbers of fish in the 9-11" range. Not seeing much for bluegill bite currently.

No hot fishing anywhere fished the north end of Prairie with limited results small gills, med sized perch and a small eye shallow. Lost a jumbo perch a boatside was only quality fish caught. Oh ya numerous 8 to 12 bass all caught shallow nothing on rods over the side in deeper water. caught a few 8 to 9in crappies at dusk in top three feet of water. Water is clearing up already so should be getting better.

Decent bite all three days of the Labor Day week-end.

Perch were in shallow (3-5') of water, mud bottom along weed edges. Jig and minnow or minnow under a bobber working best. Also got a few on small tube jigs.

I haven't been out since last week-end which is typically the only time I get to put in significant time on the lake. Past three week-ends I have had some success early in the day for perch which is what I prefer to target for panfish species. Finding them in shallow water 3'-4'  along weed edges. Best success on minnows but also getting some on worms or small tube jig. Finding plenty of decent size and enough for a family size fish fry. 

Good Luck, looks like nice weather for the long week-end!
