griz,
I've not heard much about Namakan, as fishing did quiet down some with the advent of mayflies and hot weather. A few anglers I know have been hittin the Tar Point area, East end on Namakan Is. and somewhere over by Twin Aligators and had preety good success. For some reason the better sauger fishing has been on Kab and not Nam.
This time of year I would expect Smallies to start banging lures pretty good on Namakan.

If I hear any more or do any better myself, I'll post up a message again. Good luck, guts <}}}}}><

guts--- here is the plan, bottom bouncers around reefs with crawlers trolling quickly. Biggest question now is depth, 2 weeks ago the walleyes were in 8-10 feet, next week it will have changed im sure as the water temp has gone up. And as you said toward evening top water with dr. devilshorse for the smallies. Your advice is greatly appreciated. Griz.

Griz, I fished Namakan last week. Most of the fish were still shallow, nothing on the reefs. The Smallies were hammering top water early mornings. We had some luck trolling crank baits over the deep water around Namakan Island in the evening. Let me know if you find anything on the reefs. I am looking at going back in a couple of weeks.
Thanks and good luck.
Dusty

Griz, we fished and Namaken Saturday from 4:30 to 8:00 PM mostly Squirrel Narrows and Strawberry area. We had a tremendous south wind and fishing was great. Caught a 4.5 lb smallie and lots of over-slot eyes. We did keep 3 in the slot. We caught em on floating jigs with nitro crawlers but when I cleaned em, they were full of minnows !(the smallie puked crayfish when I took him off the hook- he was 18"long and fat) They were in 6-8'in rocks of course. (I need some dive gear to retrieve all the gear I've lost lately).

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
