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.

    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
    • Big Dave I'm thinking it's a mountain lion or maybe a catamount. 
    • Sorry guys didn't realize posting a video would cause such a controversy! 😆. Anyways, yes, isolated cover has been what has seemed to work great for me, especially on pressured lakes. As far as catching bass goes, it's what I target 90% of the time in summer simply because I love the fight! Spring and winter I mostly target walleye then.
    • Wow did Butler look good lastnight! Saw a lot of things (particularly in the 4th quarter) that show this team is NOT very good without Butler. Apparently the fans have no ill will towards him, as they MVP chant was getting pretty loud.
