My family and I have been fishing Chetek chain for years mainly for panfish. I would like to know if there are any hot spots to cast for Northerns in the chain.

Thanks for the info kingfish. My Wife and I usually limit out this time of year. But with the late ice out, I've been worried about the catch. Thanks again.

Thanks BillGun, I look forward to hearing how it goes. I agree, it's nice to be able to track how things are going before you get there.

You may hit the spawn LAS.??? We are going up the 18th of May... Usually the last week of May is fantastic for crappies. We will see. This year has been f'up as far as ice out goes. I'll let you know how we do. It's great to have an outlet to talk these things over.

Hello - I'm coming up to Chetek the week of June 8-15. Does anyone have a guess as to crappie spawn timing this year? I've been told that it's usually around that week, but will the recent weather push it back any? The only estimate I've seen of current water temperature is 48 degrees, is this pretty accurate?

Thanks!

Good Crappie bite yesterday afternoon-evening!!! 5-8 feet of water, small jigs with soft plastices fished 1-3 feet under a bobber. Caught all sizes. I am guessing the cold front will not help todays fishing, but it should be great fishing next week when it warms up...Good Luck!!

one eye on all but 10 mile and moose ear, 5 on there. But do not stop and fish those with a one fish limit. need to go straight to your dock and get rid of 5 if caught in those two lakes. stupid rule since the chain is all connected.. dnr site has updates

Does anybody have knowledge of what the actual Walleye bag limit is? Heard many things and have read 1, 2 and 5 fish limits. Thanks

Hey "scumfrogg", just go to Chetek Vacation Guide online. Hit "Dining". Both Gilligan's & Red's have webcams. Ice is gone.

Will be coming up to the chain on Monday and fish mostly on Prairie and Pekegema. Can anybody give me a status if these lakes are free of ice and fishable?
