wanted: tips for August

1 post in this topic

My buddies and I will be on our 13th straight extended weekend Houseboat trip during the weekend of August 11. This will be our third year in a row (4th overall) at Kabetogama/Namakan.

The very first year at K/N we got lucky and stumbled upon a bunch of walleyes. That was the most fish we've caught in all of our houseboat trips. We're not picky and the type of fish doesn't even matter. I'd like to go after walleyes but prefer just catching fish to keep the other guys interested.

Based on our limited setup (not to mention fishing ability smile.gif) of rowboats with 15hp engines, short rope anchors and 1-2 depth finders, can anyone provide some advice starting with which lake we should concentrate on, Kab or Nam?

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
