Namakan fishing report

Recommended Posts

Guest

Just got back from spending a week at Namakan. Fishing was extremely slow up to Friday. We caught Smallies and Pike all week on wind swept shorelines with lindy rig but no size to them. Friday we decided to try some shallow weedy bays with the lindy rig and started catching small Walleyes. We caught them right in the weeds. The bays were 10ft or less. Silver,orange,and Chart. blades worked the best. It was tough fishing in the weeds but I found out that a rubber worm instead of the real thing worked a lot better for me because it would go through the weeds with out hanging up so much and you didn't have to keep putting a new worm on. I was using half of a rubber worm on a 2 hook worm harness. By doing this the 2nd hook was at the back preventing the short bite. If anybody is looking for some big pike action I had several large ones (10lbs+)follow my lures to the boat in Moose Bay. It was tough to do the fig. 8 in weeds. I seen one walleye caught all week jigging and that guy was in 40ft of water. D.W. Hans

Thanks for the report, yours sounds pretty typical. These lakes just don't want to give up walleyes easily. Hope the oncoming normal weather temps improve the bite.
Thanks, guts <{{{{{><

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      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.
