Walleye update?

Recommended Posts

Guest

I fished Namakan a week ago. The Walleye's were either real deep or real shallow in the weeds. Don't over look the lindy rig.The walleyes we did catch were on worm harness's. D.W. Hans

I will be coming up to Kab next Saturday the 27th. It is my first time. Does anyone have some info on the Walleye bite? Are they off the islands or on the reefs? Deep or shallow? I have a hot spots map to hopefully get me on the right track. Also what is the preferred bait this time of year? Thanks

Well D.W's report is still holding true. The bigger walleyes out of the weeds and the smaller eyes out of the reef structures.

I suggest a jig and minnow, or a lindy rig and minnow, if you need a worm harness or a stinger hook setup remains to be seen, the bite might be on by then and the extra hook not necessary. Read over the hot spots map, noting the traditional fall fishing locations, that info is on the back side and is pretty darn accurate. Normally the deep water walleyes turn on, 30-40' when the water temp drops. Good luck guts <{{{{{><

Just returned sunday from 3 days fishing at kab-nam. 1 walleye in about 25 hours of fishing. The weather was nasty, rain and wind. Fished Kab and Nam about equal amount depending how strong the wind was. We marked alot of fish on the graph, but couldn't find any takers. I got the Aqua-view out and there were walleye and sauger at most every spot I looked but most all were buried in the bottom. Needless to say they weren't very active. We didn't feel so bad cuz it seemed like everybody had similar stories. I do have to give out a thank you to the park service or whoever runs/maintains the campsites on the lakes. Excellant sites and the people that live up in that country are blessed with a beautiful area. I'm sure fishing will pick up. We are already looking forward to next years trip, even with the luck we had on this trip. Just a question, is this normally a good time for fishing on the lakes or did that front really shut her down. Joe

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
