Can someone please give me a report on the crappie fishing on Chetek as of today. Good, bad, so-so ? Is the spawn completely over? Thanks

Yes, Hurricane, I read them all. And, I check for new rules every time I come up. It's kind of rude that you made an assumption without the facts. It was the bait shops that need to brush up on the rules. 2 of them were adamant that what I had learned from the DNR website was wrong. Turns out that I had the limits right in the first place.

Crappies can be found in anywhere from 3 foot to 11 feet in different stages of spawning to post spawning. Gills are just moving to the first break prior to spawning on Prairie.

Hello all - How are the crappie and/or bluegill biting right now? Assuming crappie have moved to the beds? We're coming up next week, can't wait to get there!

"Apparently" you don't read the regulations or realize you are fishing in the Ceded Territory.

The walleye limit is always set first when the indians chose the lakes they have on the list given the DNR (along with fish to be taken from each body of water). After spearing, the limits are adjusted up or down depending on the numbers taken. Thanks to Federal Judge Barbara Crabb in the 80's, it's indians first, the rest of Ameticans last.

It is a fact of life up here, live with it, because there isn't a damn thing you can do about it. It's Federal Law.

Besides, the spearing damage pales when compared to the decimation of the walleye population in the Chain caused by the over-population of large mouth bass. Ever since the rise in this "green carp" population the great walleye fishing we once knew is no more. The same thing is happening on several lakes I could name. If people are going to fish the damn things, keep them, take 'em home and fry 'em.

Apparently, they can't make up their mind on the walleye limit. I checked with the DNR before we came up. When I got there, I was told a different limit. Now it seems, it changed again the day we left. Ha! Oh well.

If you would go to the DNR site, you would see that the revised limits went into effect on the 25th. Try a google search for wi dnr ceded territory. Everything you want to know is there.

Basically, Prairie limit is 2, Chetek and Pokegema are 5

I read the new limits on the 24th to confirm what I had heard earlier in the week thru the papers and tv casts. Could be they changed while you were here I suspect.

We were up there last week. The guys at the bait shops told me 1 walleye limit on ALL of the lakes, except "10 Mile", which is still a 5 walleye limit. So what gives? Did they change the limits since we left Saturday, 5-25-13 ???

just looked at the list also. it appears Prairie is 2 with the rest of the chain at 5. Stupid limit as all the lakes are connected but that's their decision.

Remember do not have 3 eyes in the boat and stop to fish Prairie, you will get a ticket if warden checks you.

Hey all, I just read the revised walleye limits, but I want to make sure I have this correct. The only lake on the chetek chain that is listed on the ceded terriorty list is Prarie and that now has a 2 walleye limit. None of the other lakes are listed on this report. Which, in theory, would mean they have gone to a 5 fish limit.

Do I have this correct, or is there another special regulations list that I am not aware of?
