Crane, Sand, Nam, Kab Lake Maps?


Recommended Posts

I am going up tomorrow evening and do not have any maps. Where would I get these maps? Also, looks like rain. Does anyone feel that this will help or hurt the fishing?

I think the best maps come from the Minnesota State Library. Although they are paper and not as durable as others. As I recall the Sand Point map on the water resistant paper does not have water depths and the Namakan map on the same paper does not shown clear to the Namakan Narrows on the east end. As far as I know you will have to go to the library since there is no time to mail them to you.

You can probably get the water resistant versions at many locations but Andersons Sporting Goods in Orr had them earlier in the year. Andersons is before the traffic light for the road to Crane. It is on the west side of US53 but there is a ton of parking on the east side.

If your putting in up by Kabetogama or Ash River...Gateway Store on the Corner of Hwy 53 and the turn to Kabetogama has the best prices for maps...

Hope that helps...

I am a Rainy Laker that has found life after Rainy. Last summer I went from Crane to Kettle and i can't get it off my mind. I would never navigate without maps on these lakes. I respect the rocks to much. I am a little bumbed that there is T-storms in the forcast, I feel that will hurt the fishing. Any thoughts?

I have fished crane, sandpoint and namagan for the last 6 years real heavy and the best map I have found that helped me were the sportsman book like area or county's it cost around $15-16 and have alot of lakes in them and what I do I scan the pages I want and laminate them and they also have countours and dept plus GPS# it really helped me and it also have markins of the rockpiles and thats a plus believe me

I am a local to the area and have fished rainy, kab, and nam all of my life. I worked on the ash river for three years. The crappies that call that area home in the winter time are combined schools from sullivans, lost lake, and rudder bay areas. The crappies at the mouth haven't just moved...they have been hit hard, and the population has crashed in that area. You do the math, sixty houses on the ice and one hundred people there on both saturday and sundays all winter=lots of fish harvested=decreased quality of the fishery for several years to follow. That was the situation three years ago and we have seen the results. It was and still can be a good area, but with the overharvesting of crappies, it may take many years to rebound. If you know where to find them, their there...see you all on the ice!
