Chena Bait?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what the word on Chena Bait is. I have heard a few obscure references to it. Where can you get it? I think a read that is seal skin, is that right? Do you use it like a microscopic version of a jig and pig combo. I read a post somewhere that its is dynamite for panfish. I'm just looking for info and availability.

Good Luck,

pbow,

let me know what you find out. Also, if you want to hit Big Butternut sometime let me know. I live throwing distance from the lake and fish it quite a bit. I saw some really nice perch and a few walleyes on my aqua-vu last night at sunset but the bluegills were the only one gullible enough to bite waxies confused.gif .

Good Luck!

pbow,

I'll be around this weekend. The perch and eyes were on the 12-15'break, west edge of the rock pile on the north end of the lake. I went to my shack at dark and picked up crappies between 6:15-7:00pm. Email me if you know when you're going to be up here.

Good Luck!

You can find that bait at Backwoods Resort on the Island Lake chain near New Auburn.

Have used it quite a bit. Ken the resort owner turned me onto it.

Gander MTN. in Appleton had one package of Chena bait in their bait fridge the last time I looked. I don't know how often they stock it.

Fish Toys,

Thanks for the tip, I already did that and found a spot down by Lake Holcombe. I also see from above posts that New Auburn is another spot. I guess it really is a rare find. I didn't want to have to drive an hour and a half to get it but it must be worth it.

Good Luck!

I found a guy in Plover WI who makes Ice Tails out of his garage.They are really small soft plastic tails that come in all colors.Tip them on a 100th oz jig with a spike and they are a killer for panfish. I think he also scents them.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
