Namakan Kabetogama Fiahing Reports


Recommended Posts

Wind set the pace for anglers this past week. Some thought it was too much of a good thing.

Windblown shorelines were good to anglers that could manage boat control and stay in the 10-15’ depth. Baitfish get directed into those shorelines which usually leads to good fishing.

If the wind dies down at anytime, or the following day, concentrate your efforts accordingly for great results.

A suggested method of fishing while the winds are blowing, is troll artificial lures at depths between 12-16’, or use lead line and troll deeper waters. All fish species relate well to this, and boat control isn’t as critical.

The walleye bite remains very scattered, reports of anglers catching fish on all baits, shallow and deep, the only common denominator is, only a few fish from each location. It’s safe to say walleyes aren’t schooled up as would be expected.

Live bait rigs, a slip sinker or bottom bouncer, with a 3’-5’ snell, plain hook or spinner and beads using a crawler or leech is the preferred methods these days.

Pike taking artificial crank baits by casting or trolling deep weed edges is attracting pike of all sizes.

Casting stick baits, spoons or buck tails up to weed edges or clearing is working well for pike and smallies.

No favored areas of the lake to fish with them being so scattered, however best reports coming from say Sugarbush Island down to the Ash River entrance into Kab.

Some deeper water success on Namakan using jig and minnow in the 30’ plus depth range.

Biting flies still a nuisance as are evening mosquitoes - be prepared. I might add, lots of UV rays so lotion up and enjoy your time in Beautiful Voyageurs National Park.

BINGO continues on Kabetogama at the New Community Hall on Tuesday and Thursday Nights at 8:00pm.

Great Time for Planning a Trip,

See you Soon,

Crabby Phil & Ellen Hart
