Any advice?

3 posts in this topic

I’m heading up Friday AM to fish for 3 days. I plan on camping somewhere on the West end of Namakan. I would like to get into some large Northerns, Smallies, and Walleye. Does anyone have any suggestion as to where I should be looking? I have never been up there this late in the year so I’m not sure what the patterns are for fall. Should the Walleyes be on sharp breaks or points and reefs? What about Northerns? Are the big girls in the shallow bays yet or still in the deeper water? Thanks in advance for any help.

Read my Sand Point report, it won't be largely different.

I just got back. WOW are there spots in that area. Boats tend to congregate on weekends, and off the mouths of the bays in 20-35 feet of water. Jigs and minnows for eyes, and the occasional gator will hammer you if you're not careful. Saw many casting in the shallower bays with 1/2 their suitcase on the end of their line... assume they are looking for toothy gators. Good luck.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
