A couple Hayward area lakes

5 posts in this topic

I was going to post this in the Hayward forum, but it looks like it gets about 10 posts per year. ;-)

I'm planning a trip with my Dad and brothers in early October. I have narrowed it down to two lakes and curious if anyone has fished for bass on those lakes and has any thoughts or feedback.

The two options are:

1. "Quiet Lakes" Chain of Lost Land, Teal and Ghost Lakes

2. Birchwood Lakes - Chetac, Red Cedar, Birch, Hemlock

Feel free to email me at shiltsy AT gmail DOT com if you don't want to reveal details. I'm just working to setup a fun trip where we have some decent action.

Thanks as always!

I was out on chetek and birch about 2 weeks ago. We fished the channel between the lakes with limited success. Once we were in chetek the pads were the hot ticket, many good sized bass in that lake. We had some fun fishing around the islands also. I would love to make it back out there for more than the afternoon we were out there. A lot of fishy waters in that area.

Lost Land and Teal are pretty good, fished them the past couple of summers, some good sizes in those two. They are connected so if you don't do to well on one, you can easily move to the other.

I think the first weekend in October there is the Hayward musky tournament on some of those lakes. It might get a little crowded.

We go on a vacation on Chetac in mid-September, and the bass are usually biting pretty good. The lily pads are usually producing pretty well, and there are plenty bass under the docks throughout the lake, and in fallen trees. Basically anwhere you can find some thick cover. We usually fish Jawbreaker spoons and frogs over the pads, and senkos/flukes under the docks and near timber.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
