report from East Namakan

3 posts in this topic

We just returned from the East end of Namakan and fished walleye in the mornings and evenings, and evenings were the best not much doing in the morning for us. Crawlers on spinners and bottom bouncers did it for us. The fish were coming from deep water to shallow bays to feed. Caught most in 14-to 22 feet. Last Friday we even caught a few on crank baits at noon. The mid day smallies and Northern were great fun. Lots of 17-19” smallies. Spinner baits and top waters, explosive action, nothing better than to watch them jump out of the water after your bait.

Lots of people camping, we looked all over Thursday for a site and only found one, not the best but we grew to like it. As always a great time.

Good luck fishing!!

Thanks for the post. We're coming up labor day week and hoping the fish will keep us busy and fed for a few days. Were there any specific colors that worked better or any specific types of topwaters that worked better than others? Any patterns? Calm vs. choppy water etc.? Just hoping to eliminate as much work as I can before I get up there wink.gif

We did have a breeze and I didn’t think the top water worked as well in the chop. I like the light colors white/chartreuse, blue/white/chartreuse, white, It didn’t really matter.I also like the three blad top water baits. Spinners It also didn’t really matter, we used orange, pink and white, white, chrome hologram, nothing really did better than the other. We trolled at about 1.5-1.8 mph , and cast anything rocks weeds next to shore and even deeper water the smallies will come. wink.gif

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
