Namakan End Of September

Recommended Posts

Fishouttawater

Heading to namakan for a long last weekend of September. Never been to voyageurs but fished plenty of big water before. We’re camping on day marker 23 just east of kab narrows.Looks to be plenty of fishy spots in those islands and bays. I know it’s a bit early for current conditions but any help would be great. For example. Typical depth  range, water temps, and bait for that time of year. Primarily fishing for eyes but will definitely being spending a day chasing big PiKe too. Thanks in advance

Better Than Working!

I just got back from a week on Kab. Fishing was great! Was fishing with my wife and we hit the prime time each day(11:30 to 2:30 and 4:30 to 6:30)! We trolled 30-32 feet of water around reefs and humps with shad raps and lead core. Plenty of keepers and a lot of slot fish. Caught bass, pike and walleye in shallow water with jerk baits. This was our first trip to Kab and we will go back. Staying on Namakan I would recommend the trip to Kettle Falls. We went on our last day and felt it was well worth the time!  Good luck!

i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths

oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

Appreciate it barbel. Any info is good info this time of year. Head up in 4 days. I think all the fisherman are all haunting the woods instead of the water right now. Thanks again

Was up last weekend to Kab, and fishing is very good right now. We caught a lot of walleyes (lots of smalls) on jig & minnow, and got in to a lot of Crappies as well. Have fun! The bite is on.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them

      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
