How's the fishing?

Recommended Posts

wallyfisher

The boys are I are going to be up on Wed, wondering how the fishing has been on Kab/Namakan. Just wondering if anyone is catching and if you'll pass on any trade secrets to us.

Thanks

wallyfisher, shallow bite on the West end of Kab, and a deep water bite, 40'+ on the East end of Kab and Nam.

Live bait seems best, shallow anglers pitching jigs, deep water anglers using jig and minnow and some action on slip sinker rigs. Leeches and crawlers just catchin on.

Weater outlook looks cool and wet, dress accordinly.

good luck, guts

Guts is right on with the info. Some fish shallow, pitching jigs and slips for us. Should be getting better every day it blows steady for shallow water. Some smaller ones down deep on jigs and minnows. Then we had a few in between depths.

Good luck

Pretty rocky weather, 1"+ of rain last night. The last I heard the shiners were in but that was a few days ago, I question if they are still running. Guys still nailing all spieces of fish in shallow water though. guts

I will be back up friday night for the weekend. I am thinking about trying some places like the bays behind killian island. I have heard that they are still in as little as 4 foot as of wednesday maybe a slip bobber in shallow? Also did some drop shot fishing at a lake down here on tuesday night with some sucess. Perhaps I will try that over by the sisters...

Just got back today. Bad storm on Thurs was not good for the bite. Seemed like they were ready to start hitting again last night. Had some luck by Wolf Is. on Wed, but all to big to keep. Really nice fish.

Thanks for your help fellas.

Wallyfisher: About what time on Thursday did the storms come through? We left Thursday morning after hearing the forecast for all day thunderstorms, wind, hail etc. and we were leaving Friday morning anyhow. By the time we got to Virginia the sky was clearing and we thought we made a wrong decision. We got our 2 person limit, but worked long hours over two days to do it. Rainbows worked best, crawlers were getting some also.

We were camping up there from wed-sun. On thursday the storms did not really start until about 7pm. We had rain showers here and there all day but the rain, windand hail did not start till late and lasted all night long. Friday and Saturday were both beautiful days to fish.

Also found a new spot that we really enjoyed. The experienced fishers will probaly know it already but here it goes. Hammer Bay south in the cove to the portage for O'Leary lake, because we had a couple of preteen boys with us we hit the weeds for Northern Pike and struck Gold I think in a 2 hour span we caught close to 15 fish 5 over 30". For a Missouri boy it was heaven.

We were on Kab, storm hit early afternoon. Thunder, lightening, didn't see any hail. At the resort on Ash River they said they had 3-4 inches of rain.

Just returned well last Sunday, I have not had any time to sit and type or read anything up. We were there from Sunday the 8th to the 17th and fishing was good but size was hard to keep consistent. We were on the East end of Namakan for the most part. Walleyes were not hard to catch with spinners and a crawler in the morning and evening, couldn’t hardly find them in the mid day. So we would cast the islands and bays and had no problem catching smallies and northern. Spinner baits, twitch baits, DT-10’s it really didn’t matter you could catch fish all day. The walleyes were small but the good keepers were in with them if you kept at it. Last Sat. the eye’s really seem to be coming on and better size 14-16 ½ inchers consistant and had to throw back 20-21 inchers. Water temps are coming up beginning of the week high 50’s Sunday high 60’s low 70’s. The water levels are to me normal it came up 12-14 inches the week before and about 3” last week. I think that really messed with the fishing, and where the fish are. We could catch fish in 1 to 32 feet of water. I know that doesn’t narrow much down but was the truth. Leach bite was not there, crawlers and crank baits worked for us.

Hope this helps anyone going up soon. I plan to be back later this week for a few more days.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
