Musky in namakan?

3 posts in this topic

Dusty, sorry for the late reply. I did fish the week of 7-15 on the east end of Namakan. The walleye were biting very lightly. Used ultra-light equipment, it was a big help. Also, some people I talked to said there were some musky in Namakan and Sand Point while others said there were none. Any help anyone? Thanks.

I've heard wild stories about Muskie in the lakes, but talking with many of the ledgend fishing guides and old timers from this area, they know of no muskie caught for fact. There are huge sturgeon caught fairly frequently from Ash River into Namakan and the interior Shoepack Lakes located within the Kabetogama peninsula have a good population of Hybrid muskie that were stocked in there alot of years back. Some of the 25# plus northerns caught in Namakan might be fooling the amateurs.. I know I've followed the DNRS test netting results in Kab. Nam., Sand Pt. and Crane and they have yet to net a muskie. Anybody else?

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
