Western WI Get Together
« on: Dec 13, 2016, 11:43 AM »
I know we did this a few years back but was kinda limited due to warm Temps. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in going out and giving it a try again. Thinking early January for a date. Not sure on lakes but I've liked the chetek chain last few years. Really open on suggestions to figure something out.

I am up for it.  Chetek chain, or any other lake sounds good.

Long lake in Washburn county just east of Sarona. I heard it was always good crappie fishing, and I guess walleye are starting to make a come back. I guess the lake totally iced over last Friday. Anyway I always wanted to try ice fishing out there. They say there is good crappie fishing by the narrows? That would be the boat landing on the north end off B.

Chetak Chain is way better than Long. Long needs another 2-3 years.

I would be interested in meeting up on Chetek chain. I am there most weekends. I'm can't really travel anywhere else for fishing, so if you end up in Chetek, I'll try to be there.

Chetek chain sounds good then? Anyone have a preference on weekend? I free every weekend except the weekend of the 14th and 15th.

 I  believe that every weekend in January is open, so I have been waiting to see what works for everyone else.

I would suggest NOT on Jan. 21st. They have the big fireman's fund ice fishing tournament that Saturday and the lakes are packed.

Saturday the 7th chetek chain sound good to everyone? I've fished it a few times and have had decent success but if anyone has some spots they wouldn't mind sharing that would be good too.

I think I will be around on the 7th. If people want easy access, there is a public landing on Lake Chetek right by the airport. People fish out there a fair amount. I have only fished those spots a few times catching a mixed bag of perch, gills and crappies...

Well since it's going to be pretty chilly on Saturday anyone down to change this to say a weekend in late February? Usually a little warmeet and be able to access most of the lake by vehicle. Just a suggestion. As much as I love ice fishing I'm not the type to sit in a shack while it's freezing out.
