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'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
