Namakan fishing report Needed

Recommended Posts

Guest

Will be fishing Namakan Sept. 8th-13th. Would like any fishing reports leading up to these dates. Lures, live bait, species, depth, when and where is all helpful. We had a lot of luck around Namakan Island last year. Was wondering if it is still producing? Thanks for the Help!! Hans

If you go to the Gateway store website, it pretty much matches what we saw last weekend. Hopefully it won't be close to 100 degrees when you're there!

Hans,
Well we had cool weather for awhile but the hot stuff came back today, close to 90 degrees. It is surpose to cool down again though. Fishing has been better on the Namakan basin as of late. Namakan Island is a good area right now. In the same vicinity is Twin Aligators and on up the way is Tar Point. These can be good late season pre fall areas. Fishing is slow, but a big difference between now and spring is, in the spring they caught lots of over slot fish and now the most prevalent eye is at slot or a shade under. The DNR says, contrary to recent fishing results, that the Kab/Nam basins are a great fishery and are walleye population is impressive and one of the best in the state. The slow bite situation is blamed on many factors and combinations
thereof. Things are looking better, hopefully by the time you get here. Good luck, guts <{{{{{>< Gateways website that cobra mentioned is www.gatewaygeneral.com

Hopefully we'll be camping on Namakan Island if it's open. There will be 4 of us up there. Look for 2 16ft v-hulls from Iowa. I'll be the big boy in the front of one of the boats.

Will be looking for you. We have a houseboat and try to dock at Big Sky Island or Blind Indian Narrows. Fished up there in June, had some luck with wallies in Koeller Bay and Dutch Bay. Nothing big all slot fish.

Good Luck

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
