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?

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing 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.
