Chetek Chain Of Lakes
Fishing Report
From Steve Sedani


August 1,  2012


anglers are enjoying some good fishing on the Chetek chain of lakes through
these last remaining days of July. Drifting in water depths of 8-12ft on the
main lakes of the chain are catching some nice size fish to bring to the dinner
table while on vacation. Crappie jigs fished vertically and tipped with a
crappie minnow or a waxie seem to work well to tantalize them to bite. You and
also use a bobber to suspend your jig to catch these suspending fish.


anglers are finding the big bluegills in 7-10 ft of water and tight to the
bottom in these areas. You may find dragging your worm and hook along the bottom
to work better than a bobber rig. Small junks of night crawlers work well can be
harder for them to steal your bait from the hook. 


Northern pike
anglers are finding the pike in 4-8 ft of water when throwing small spoon baits
and spinner baits in the morning hours. You find them busting small shad bait
fish in these areas on the water surface. Twitching a floating rapala on the
surface can work very well to imitate a wounded minnow also. Hold on tight to
your rod when working your as there a some big fish in feeding at these


Bass anglers
are finding many numbers of bass biting at their artificial baits. Pitching jigs
or rubber worms into the fallen trees along the shorelines work well for finding
some of the big fish hanging in the shaded waters. Working scum frogs along the
tops of weed pockets and duck weed in the bays will bring you some exciting
surface hits from the bass lurking below. 


anglers are finding some trolling and trigger some of the walleyes into biting
when trolling the channel areas and along the underwater points located around
the chain of lakes. Look for water depths from 7-12 ft for these suspending
walleyes. Trolling with shad raps, rapalas, cordell minnows and walleye divers
can work well for baits to entice the strikes.


Good luck
to all anglers and don't forget to buy your raffle tickets for the walleye
stocking program from local sport shops and retailers. The raffle is in one
