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,

yeah my uncle uses it a lot. its seal skin and he loves it. im not sure where he got it from ill have to ask him. One of the best things is you dont have to change bait every catch.

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.

    • In October 2017, Saudi Arabia presented an ambitious project to construct a smart and environmentally safe city called Neom on the Red Sea coast. The project creators expect the city to cover its energy needs with renewable sources entirely, and that the transportation system, and all the essential services, be 100% sustainable. The mega-project — estimated at $500bn — currently exists on paper only, but it stands as a strong indication of the general focus on environmental compatibility and energy efficiency in the segment. This is a part of an article https://tranio.com/articles/building-green-trendy-and-economical/   What do you think about such projects? Is it worth investments in 21 century? Would you build such house?  
    • tracked down some quick numbers; supposedly the heater draw at 7 amps, and that would be the main appliance to be ran at night +-1.5 hour total run time during a 8 hour sleep period; i should have plenty of power on the battery!
       
    • This got me curious, so I checked my profile and sure enough, I'm coming up on 10 years myself on 12/30.  However, over those 10 years I've posted WAY less topless selfies than Leech has!
    • ikr, Duff started some noise a while back but never happened? 😒
    • awesome thanks guys; found out my battery has 88 amp hours; I'll look into my heater, and radio, not sure what the LED lights are, i'll try to look there too;   how long do your guys usually last before in need of a genny?
    • You might be right.  The only common denominator between all of the kickers that have encountered major issues while with the Vikings is Priefer.  He has built the Special Teams unit into a Special Needs unit.  How they can under preform every year and break down at the most critical times and it not come back on Priefer is really mind boggling.  
    • Congrats whippersnapper.   When are you going to get your wings and throw a get together?👈👈☝️👍😁❤😁
    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html
