thanks chubbs , ya with this goofy weather this year maybe it will be July before the ice goes out. last yr was the first time in our 29 yrs that there was ice on opening. sat out is sleet, rain and snow one year but the ice was out. in 1989 I got a 24 inch large mouth up by kreki kingdom and 2006 my brother in law hooked a 47 inch northern, took a pic and threw him back so he is still there maybe for the pickin

Yes the ice is thicker... As far as as how it will be on may 10th or when it will be off depends on weather,and nobody can predict that.

Hey guys made it out last night and this morning. Last night the gills were biting from 3:00 til bout 5:30. To my suprise I only caught one crappie and also managed so very nice perch. This morning they were a bit more finicky but did managed some nice gills and a few really nice perch. Everything went back down the hole. To the guys wondering where I am....I am actually on the south end of prarie and haven't seen mnay people fishing near me because of the travel conditions. I know a guy here in town that lets me walk through his yard to get to the lake. Fishing in 12 ft of water with a chartruse moon glow and orange moon glow. Good Luck and tight lines.

Last year was by far the latest I've seen in 13 years while living in Chetek. The ice officially went out a few days after the opener. I heard there was ice on the opener back in 1993 or 94. My auger is going to need an extension if I fish the chain this weekend or my chisel.

The landing by Wolfs Den, Veterans Park and Brions Landing are safe bets for upper Prairie Lake, especially this time of year. The one landing on the south shore of Ojaski can be good, as well as the landing on Pokegama by Gilligans. Hope this helps

Hey gillpill if ya don't mind me asking where did you go on the ice? Im not familiar with the chetek chain at all. Once upon a time I fished it a lot with my pops but that was when I was a little guy and those memories have since faded sadly.

Id like to get on the chain somewhere but I don't have a 4x4 so im limited to plowed ice roads or short walks. If you wouldn't mind helpin me out that would be greatly appreciated. You or any of the guys can post to thread or PM me.

Thanks for any help you might provide.

Cronk

Be safe and Good fishin!!!

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.
