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

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
