I'll be fishing Kab and Namakan this coming week. I'll let you know how I do and anything I hear that might be of use for you.

Just got back from a week on a houseboat. Fishing was day to day different. Fished Namakan first five days and caught fish every day. Fished around Juniper Island and Wolf Pack area. Walleyes from 15-40 feet on leeches/crawlers on lindys or jigs. Smallies were active on topwater baits and x-raps on any shallow rock piles. Most walleyes were 10-18 inches with a few in the 20-24" range. Best day was Tuesday from 12-1 in the afternoon. Fished Kabetogama the last two days and hammered the walleyes. Switched to crawlers and spinners over humps the first day. Second day fished around Green Island and pulled crawlers and hammered all sizes of fish. Watched a guy pull in and bobber fish this flat and must have caught 50 fish in less than two hours with three guys. Most of his were small, but enough to keep for sure. He was using leeches under his floats. Hope this helps. Smallies were also active in shallow rock areas on topwater and x-raps.

Thanks, Gus. O.k. the 23rd is coming fast. How has fishing been the past few days. Sounds like its going to be hotter than blazes when we are up there next week. We will be lindy rigging with leaches for walleyes. Any info on this week's bite?

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
