Thanks for the post. Just so I'm clear, the only 2 lakes that are not considered ceded are ten mile and moose ear. Thanks for the info!

Hey BigBlue, I have only been going up to chetek for the past 5 years but we have been going up the exact week you guys are. We normally fish the shoreline structure and weed edges. Waxies do good. As far as food, I dont live up there and I'm not sure of any Buffets, but we love Wednesdays all u can eat wings at Gilligans, pizza from the B&B, and I know a few places have all u can eat fish on Fridays. You guys are gonna have a Great time!

Ice update (somewhat)

Frankenburg Slough (on the way to Vet's Park) about 20-30' from shore, both sides, and turning blacker as the day goes on. Need a strong WNW wind once it opens between the two points by the entrance.

Main lake on the north end is just starting to blacken. "Should" be gone by opening. Barring a big temp. drop.

Not bad for a "crotchety old man", huh? Wink

It should be noted that standing ice is harder than hell to spear through. That's a GOOD thing.

Thanks a lot Kingfish. I love learning about the chain. Our group loves coming up to visit every year. Were due to be up there the 2nd and 3rd week of June, and are looking forward to having a great and relaxing time in Chetek catching panfish, bass, and northern. ..... Now if we could just figure out how to catch them darn walleye. ...lol

Earl, the ice out on the average is around April 18 give of take on a normal year. When I owned Kingfisher I could count on ice out on Ten Mile about 10 days from when the ice was gone from in front. Presently has ice in front but melting to almost the park's boat landing. Balance of the chain looks locked in. Gonna be a close year fro the opener again.

Ice out will as nature decides . Guess that all there is to it. That funny read the posts and no where did I see where hurricane stooped to name calling as fullafish did to him. Also looked back on the thread and fond it funny that I didnt see any productive reports fro him. Must be another thread surfing name caller.

I've been coming up to fish the Chetek chain for 38 years and enjoy the area a lot. Subscribe to the Chetek Alert and like to keep up on the news. Enjoy this site for the info and have a trip planned for May 17 with family and buddies. Thanks for you guys that live there for the helpful notes. Hope to see you on the water next month. First time on the site.

Question not a report. Sorry Hurricane. How is the Red Cedar River in this area? Is it fish able from a small boat if I float from A to B? Is there enough water to run a 7.5 hp motor on shallow? What can I expect? Pls pm me if this should be outside this thread. Thanks

Thanks for the article Hurricane, not sure that will stop all of my questions though. I love going up the the Chain, as well as learning all I can about the lakes. I understand the ice will be gone when mother nature allows it, I just didnt know if there was any normalcy or average. I do appreciate the info though. Big Smile
