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.

    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
