looking for recommendations

Recommended Posts

We're having a "men and boys" camping trip starting August 4. We're planning to go to Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan, Sand Point, or Crane Lake. Any recommendations on fishing, or camping areas? We were thinking of camping around the Namakan Narrows, but would like to hear your recommendations.

How does the fishing compare at the different lakes?
Thanks for any help!

Fishing Preacher,
Your choice of Namakan narrows should work out fine. There are many good fishing spots around Blind Pig, My Is.,Pat Smith and Pike Islands. Look for the deep water reefs for your best walleye action. You should find fish in the 20'to 35' range.
Pick up a VP map showing the camp sites and pick a site that has a bear box to secure your food.
I was on Namakan the week of 7-15 and fished as far east as Pike Is. area. We caught plenty of fish altho it was a little slower than earlier in June and May.
Good luck.

MacKenzie has maps showing the location and details of each campsite (sandy or rocky shore; bear pole or box, houseboat...).

Thanks for the info.
Any other tips, anyone?
How deep should I expect the smallies to be? Do you recommend deep-water reefs for them, like the 'eyes?
How's the crappie fishing in Namakan?
How about the northerns?
