Attendance declined slightly this year due to slushy ice conditions at the Chetek Fire Department’s 29th annual Adult and Kids Ice Fishing Tournament; however, several quality fish caught highlighted the day as anglers battled for the biggest fish on the Chetek Chain of Lakes Saturday, Jan. 14. Weather conditions started out with temperatures around 19 degrees and remained relatively mild throughout the day. Slush on top of the ice, which was also varying depths throughout the lakes, limited travel mostly to those on foot or people driving ATVs/UTVs or snowmobiles.    

The contest was held on all six lakes of the Chetek Chain, and once again, landed on Wisconsin’s annual Free Fishing Weekend.
