Fully Kraeusened posted a topic in Crane Lake Kabetogama-Namakan Fishing Reports - HuntingWondering if any of you ever fish the inland lakes throughout Voyageurs and if so which ones? I have fished the Locator chain, Ek and Net lakes. My favorite of those three is definitely Locator. Seems to have a lot of northern and I also caught a good sized largemouth. Had a rough day on Ek. Was fishing with light tackle because I’ve been told it’s a good crappie lake and was broken off once otherwise nothing. One small pike on Net. This is a picture of the bass from Locator.
Kab Kid posted a topic in Crane Lake Kabetogama-Namakan Fishing Reports - HuntingGood opening weekend...great weather for opener and more boats than normal I would say. Fishing was good, not great. I'm sure others have differing opinions, but for us we found larger walleyes in 6-12 feet when pitching jigs. You had to put up with the large number of small northern that must have been hungry! Most of our walleyes came by way of a jig and minnow, in 30-35 ft of water...most of these 9-13" and went back, but every 4-5 fish was keepable and a fair number of sauger's were in the mix. Problem was you could catch 3-5 fish in a spot and then you needed to move. So, lots of boats running all day Saturday. Saturday night/evening the bite improved and keeper fish were coming from 22-28' of water, again with a jig and minnow for us. Sunday sunny and beautiful day to be on the water! Similar patterns with the evening bite producing most of our keepers that day. As far as scenery, you simply can't beat this area. Kabetogama, Namakan, Ash River, and Crane lake is truly beautiful and the fishing is just bonus. Listening to other fisherman, it seems the slot is frustrating some people...again lots of small fish (future fish) and many 20-22" walleyes but not many trophy's and eaters were tough to find. All and all, great opener again on Kabetogama, hope everyone else had fun and a safe opening weekend. Happy to talk fishing on Kabetogama, enjoy the season... Kab Kid http://www.kabkid.com
