Walleye migration from Kab to Nam?

2 posts in this topic

Has anyone any information on Walleyes migrating to Namakan from Kab in July and August? I have heard this a couple of times and am skeptical but interested. I have been told that Walleyes migrate to the clearer deeper waters of Namakan during the hot summer months. If anyone has any thoughts on this I would appreciate a response.

Thanks,

It don't happen. If you have seen a kab walleye vs. a Nam walleye I think you would have to agree. Kab fish are bright white on the belly and nam fish look as though they have been dipped in dirty old motor oil. How many dark fish have you seen come out of Kab or vise versa? If there was a migration it would be the other way as there is a lot more to eat in Kab vs. Nam. But it just doesn't happen. Kab fish stay in Kab and Nam fish stay in Nam. I don't even believe that the fish move from one end of the lake to the other. But only from shallow to deep. I am not a biologist. I am basing this on the fact that I have been catching fish in the sisters all year...every year.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
