IS IT FOR ME?

Recommended Posts

Guest

I'm a guy who just likes to troll around for anything that bites. Will stop from time to time and cast for Pike , Bass , whatever. I'm more interested in the senery than catching fish. However I don't want a situation where I'm just wasting my time trolling and casting.
What ya think guys, Kab. Namakan or mybe some place else?

Dutchboy, If you want scenery and the trolling of shorelines Kabetogama and Namakan is exactly the right place. Plus you will catch fish. The scenery is wonderful and the shorlines are all uninhabited and wilderness. Very little civilization once you are out away from the resort areas. This would, I my opinion, be a great place to do what you enjoy. Fishkab

How much of the lakes are part of the national park? Any remote campsites?
Are there any local resorts that rent cabins by the weekend or just by the week.
So many questions, must be winter! LOL
Thanks for any help!

Dutch, Myself and a buddy camped at kab/nam last sept. In three days of hard fishing we caught 1 walleye. But i tell you what, that it some of the best looking country you can find in the states! We camped on one of the many remote sites up there. From what I read last fall, the fishing was slow and we found that out, but we'll be back next year! Joe

Dutchboy, thanks for the reply. All of the waters of Kabetogama and all of the Am. side of Namakan are in the park. there are many remote campsites, over 200, in the park. These sites are free but you do have to register. You can do that at all of the boat launches. You can also stay at campsites at several of the resorts and several of the resorts do offer shorter stays and their is also a small motel that has overnights. Also a outfitter has bunkhouses for overnight use. Check the www. kabetogama.com website and you will get lots of details. Fishing was a little slow of eyes last fall, but the pike fishing was very good. Fishkab

Thanks for all the help!
If you see a little Ranger trollin' around with a "smilie" face flag flying from my radio antenna this summer, you know I found my way up.
By the way.......... if that area isn't God's country I don't know what is.

Been doin the namakan thing for more than a decade now ( and the rainy and kab thing the decade before) and have found it to be superb in every way. plenty of really great campsites and lots of good fishing. some years we just camp and some years we houseboat AND camp (not me i like the warm dry bed). easy and scenic entry from crane lake (you get to experience crane and sandpoint on the way)as well. go to the sportaman show and ask alot of questions. most if not all of the vendors from that area are great to work with and will answer all your questions.

decided I had better get in on the action here on this site. Didn't make it up there the other weekend but I think we are headed up on the weekend of the 14th to ride and fish. Hopefully the riding is still good and the fish bite.

      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.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      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.
