Well, we ended up tenting it through a buncha storms, but the fishing was great. Came home with our limit of pike which we caught top water (always a blast) and a nice handful of walleyes and panfish. Even won $250 on pull-tabs and had a pretty festive night at the Loon Saloon! Wish I coulda stayed all week, but we sure had a blast.

Can't go wrong working cabbage. If they seem reluctant to cooperate, try a jig with plastic, this often helps me. Loon Saloon still has great pizza and Pla-Mor has excellent hot wings and blue cheese dressing. I should have mentioned, the skeeters are as bad as I can ever remember, so plan accordingly. Good luck.

Hey there BPW,

Thanks for posting the info on water temps. Coming up this weekend - hear its supposed to be a bit stormy but ah well. Haven't had a chance to fish up there in a few years - used to hit it every June with my grandpa until he passed a few years ago. Any advice on finding the pike? I usually just toss spinnerbaits/buzzbaits in 6-8 fow with cabbage weeds. Is the Loon Saloon still open? They always had awesome pizza - will probably be whettin' the whistle there Saturday after the sun goes down!

Hoping to find some walleyes too - just LOVE that lake!

I'll post next week with our results!

Thanks, Nate

Fished this past Saturday with my brother. Hard to believe that two weeks ago the water temp was 49 as this time it was in the low 70's. We targeted northern and caught 25. I thought we would do better as conditions seemed good. Weeds are slowly picking up.

Fished on Saturday. Water was 49-52 degrees. Little new weed growth. Caught some 12-13 inch crappie and some northerns. All taken on artificials. Had a nice visit on the water with a Bayfield county deputy out checking boats. Love the wings at Pla-Mor.

Spoke with the good folks at the Pla-Mor at noon today. Lots of ice. I believe last year the ice went out on Wednesday following the opener. Looks like a similar scenario this year. Rats.

We're finally to our family vacation in a week and I'm looking for some pointers. We usually end up working weed edges and such for Muskie, but I've heard this lake is great for walleye and panfish as well. Since my kids are finally at an age where they like going out in our little boat, I was looking for some advice on how/where/what to use for walleye and panfish since it would be a rewarding experience to have the little ones get to help fillet and eat what they catch (not to mention I'd wear the little buggers out on fishing in a hurry if they came out for Muskie with me ;p ) Anywho, we'll be up for the last 2 weeks of August and can't wait to be on such a beautiful body of water no matter what happens, but any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!!

Joe:

I would suspect that Nam is in the upper 50's to low 60's and certainly in any shallow bays perhaps a bit higher... I am judging that by our lake temps over here which are nearly the same. Nam is a bit darker so I am thinking just a bit warmer than our...

Coming up to Namekagon this weekend with the family and was wondering if anyone has any info as far as water temp, what is biting. Not looking for spots, just trying to figure on what what rods and baits to bring. Targeting smallies, and walleye. Thanks, Joe

Fished on Saturday. Friday night the lake received 2.5" of rain. Water level was very high with some piers partially submerged. Water temp was 49 degrees, warming to the 50's late in the day when the skies partly cleared, especially in wind blown areas. Green weeds very limited. The lake is about 3 weeks behind typical. Felt like fishing an early opening day. Did see a picture of a 29" walleye released that day.

Question to those that know:

I'm in the Delta area and have good success near my cabin. However, I was thinking of branching out and trying new areas for some adventure. I hear good things and bad things about this lake.

I'm not species specific but love walleye and musky over everything else. That's not to say a day on the lake with the kids or wife catching crappies isn't in my mind either.

So, is this system worth the 45 minutes of backroads? The size is a little inimidating.

Any honest advice would be appreciated via instanat messenger. I would be willing to trade secrets of Delta.

Thank you in advance.
