Hey Cronk....kind of depends of which lake you are on Travel is somewhat easy on pokegama and the north end of prarie. The other lakes on the other hand it's nearly impossible to drive without getting stuck, there are very few trails. As for me I went out yesterday and they bit the best between 11:30 and 2, after that I marked alot of fish but they became very finnicky ended up with 16 gills 3 crappies. Tonight was a different story, didn't mark much until 4:30 and then the bite was on. I kept 18 gills and 4 crappies. I caught alot more but just kept nicer ones tonight. Gills were some of the biggest I've gotten since early ice. Everything came on a chartruse moon glow tipped with waxies.

The fishing is pretty much the same either on Pokegama or the north end of Prairie. The fish are scattered about and you get schools coming through periodically. The size seems to be running smaller this year than in the past but occasionally you get some large gills. The biggest problem right now is access because of the deep snow. There are main travel routes onto the lakes but it's tough going if you get off the main trails.

I am chaperoning a HS team to the Chetek Chain this Saturday for a tournament hosted by Prairie Farm HS. General information...species to target, ice depth, etc. is all we're looking for. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Edit: We will be accessing the lake near the Chetek "airport"

I have a 23' pontoon and have been through the channel between Mud Lake and Prairie Lake many times. Going under the 24th street bridge is no problem. I trim the motor up so just enough prop in the water to steer and provide propulsion. You wont make it under the bridge on 9 3/4 ave unless you have a very small boat (no idea how deep the water is there).

Was out yesterday morning from about 7-11am fished in 16 FOW with tip-ups in shallower.We caught about 15 or so, all small. Did not have one flag before we packed up and headed to a different lake. I would have stayed, but there was a group of two anglers who decided it was a fun idea to jig next to our tip ups. They came out about an hour or so after we did, and proceeded to drill holes 5 feet from our tip ups and jig. They then drilled holes on a plowed road to a permanent, as well as next to it, within 10 feet. The guy then leaned his ice auger on the shack. Although im certain it did not hurt the shack in any way, but it just rubbed me the wrong way. Sorry for the rant ...Good luck and tight lines

P.S. This was on Pokegama

i have a 16ft 75in wide boat that will pass under the bridge on 24th street between prairie and mud lakes. about a foot and a half on each side. pontoons wont pass thru. i have never been through the channel or bridge on 9 3/4 avenue since it is shallow and weed choked with algae. use the channel to the east which passes under county road M by sunset view golf course. large pontoons easily pass through that bridge Cool

I'll be going up there in the summer and am looking at the maps now. I had a question about navigating some of the back channels. Can you get a boat under the bridge in the narrows(24th street) and the bridge that is 9 3/4 ave that goes by Pike Slough?

Thanks

Was out for 4 hrs . this afternoon on prairie lake. Panfish were located but not biting very well. Tip-up action was decent with a 29" and 28" northern and a 14" largemouth. A lot of anglers out with the nice weather.

Kept 4 fish all day on pokegama today. Fished all day. 2 gills 1 perch and a crappie. Caught a bunch of smaller fish too. But they don't seem real eager to bite.

Was out on Pokegama and Prairie on 1-08-14 and kept 10 while sifting through many more. Lots of really small crappies. You can fish anywhere out by the center island and catch fish. On Prairie just look for the crowd on the north end and you will find fish. Again the size isn't very good this year.
