FISHING REPORT
6/2/14 9:56 AM CST
Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 76° - 80º F Water Temp: 66° - 70° F
The old man and I must have boated over 150 fish on Saturday. All were shallow on hard bottom near some structure (weeds or wood). Lots of nice gills and crazy amounts of crappies. However, out of 100+ crappies caught only a hand full were 10"+.

Color and bait did not seem to matter much. Started with black flu-flu and crappie candy. When the crappie candy ran out I switched to 2" Gulp Minnows and they worked just as well.

Kept around 20 gills and a few crappies for dinner the rest are swimming.

found 10 to 11 inch crappies in the brush and a ton of hungry gills in less than a ft of water. Alot of fun but only kept 19 for a dinner. Crappies were even hitting dead minnows on small feather jigs. Problem with minnows, they did not last. Many dead within 2 hrs of purchase.

So will be heading up next week and staying at lakeshore resort. Really would like to get onto some northern, but I don't see many reports on them. Most reports seem to be about crappie. Any suggestions for the northern? Thanks, Ed

temps varied fro 58 to almost 64. seemed to be warmer away from the creek or feeder channels. you could tell where they are by watching the temps change due to the rain from Monday.

Was out on Sunday perfect day for fishing got into some nice crappies gills, and perch had to do a lot of sorting but went home with 20 total. Hey Kingfish it must have taken you all day to get those two eyes in at 86" lol just a typo but had to laugh. Looks like a great weekend coming up the bite should be real good with water temps coming up some. Any way tight lines everyone good luck and have a safe holiday weekend.

wife and I tried today but only kept 11 crappies. caught a ton of crappie but most under 8 inches and in 16 ft of water in Chetek. Tried the shallows and back bays but nothing active there. When we got the center of Chetek we marked alot of fish and they were active. the 2 inches of rain yesterday did not help matters. Also caught two 6 inch eyes in the deep water.

out this morning with Ma, only kept 4 fish...3 crappies one gill. Started out for eyes no luck, wathced the crappies on the screen under the Pokegama bridge, drifted Ten Mile. Temp of the water closer to 61 most places. Saw a limit of gill for two guys at the landing. Nice 8-9 inch gills. Said they fished in 2 ft or less. Other than that comment, they were they were tight lipped as to even which lake of the six.
