Big Chetac to birch yes and Balsam to Red Cedar yes so you can get through between Birch and Big Chetac but be careful in doing so.

Crappies on Big Chetac will be done by the time you come up and will be out in deeper water as will blue gills by then also. Try the weed line breaks in 8-12 fow for the gills . Eyes will be deep then as well I have been doing pretty good on eyes in 16-19 fow water on the flats north of the islands and they should still be there then I would think but you'll have to search for them. late evening and before first light being the best time.

My parents have a cottage on Birch. We were there last weekend and caught a ton of Largemouth/Smallmouth/Crappie & Bluegills on Chetac. The Crappie were still in the shallows & the Bluegill were coming in as well. I picked up a 13 1/2" Crappie in about 3ft. of water and some gills in the 9" range. Had a great fish fry with the family!!

Thanks for the info Badger. How big is the chanel between Birch and Chetac? This will be my first time there, I have a 17' deep V boat with a 40 hp motor. Will I have any trouble?

You won't have a problem....we take our pontoon thru it all the time. Lots of big boats go thru there (it's a no wake though). Great burgers at Birch Lake Resort! They also put on a fantastic Fireworks display. Hope you have a fun time!

Sawman, If you're looking for some good food, stop at Back to the Woodlands supper club/bar on 'F' just north of 48 a couple miles. Great food and Scotty @ Sue are really good people. I have a place near Birchwood and will be up hitting some lakes this weekend. Probably Chetac & Balsam for starters. I'll post a report when I get back.

Had a great weekend on the water. Checked out a couple spots for some big gills and after a lot of searching, we found some. fishingtripjune08004.jpgfishingtripjune08008.jpg

My son and I had an absolute blast on Friday after we found some of these bulls. Saturday, it took us a while to find them again as they had moved to the opposite side of the lake. Friday an ant jig (especially black)tipped with a power grub was the hot presentation. Saturday they wanted flu-flu jigs tipped with a waxie or spike. Got out for a few hours on Sunday on a diff. lake and had trouble finding them and when we did they weren't very aggressive. Also didn't see many beds and I think that they are just getting ready to spawn. We threw back a number of females that were still full of spawn. next weekend should be good.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
