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?

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
