Kabetogama/Namakan Report

Guts is on vacation so this is a cut and paste!

Kabetogama/Namakan Fishing Report 9-24-07

As the weather changed continuously so did the fishing. Pain and wind limited the angling pressure, however, those who ventured out faired well.

As usual, some shallow water walleye action is providing anglers with walleye and occasional bass. Flipping lures, slip bobbering or slip sinker rigs with live bait all provide results.

Die hard walleye anglers are using minnows exclusively, first choice – jig and minnow, or secondly the slip sinker rig. Best depths average around 35’.

Kabetogama anglers may favor the Martin Islands, Blind Ash and the deeper pockets around Larkin and Green Islands.

Namakan folks have a wide variety of areas on the East End, Tar Point, Namakan Island, Twin Alligators and Gold Island.

Northern pike have woke up, deep weeds and weed tops providing action. Concentrate on the windswept bays. Sucker minnow, Husky Jerks and X-Raps doing well.

Smallmouth Bass flourishing in Namakan where the season remains open. Rock pile edges and gravel bottoms kickin’ out the bass.

Caution to anglers traveling between Kabetogama and Namakan, check regulations, as Kabetogama is closed for smallies and Northern Pike limits vary between the border lakes and Kab.

Grouse hunting favors the grouse die to rain and winds. As the weather clears grouse hunting will come on strong.

See You This Fall……

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
