Right now is the best time of year for crappies other than the spawn in may/june.   Off Namakagon island in 30 feet of water 18-24 " off bottom or wherever thye are suspended.  Another spot is along HWYD about 300-400 yards past the bridge by Anderson lake.  you will also get some walleye mixed in.  My uncle goes every year this time of year and he gets alot of fish  Good Luck.

Hey folks,

Wondering if anybody has been fishing Namekagon at all lately. Heading up this weekend looking to chase some fish around. Looking mostly for pike/walleye/panfish suggestions. Much appreciated!

Thanks Mic2 I will keep that in mind for next springs trip!!! And better late then never with the reply ???? but really thanks to anyone that can be of any help Namekagon is a big lake with I think trophies to be found and photographed and next spring I will for sure bring some Musky gear because this spring I was in for a big surprise when walleye fishing in the rain and set the hook on what I instantly new was a big Ski after a long drown out fight chasing her down with the trolling motor I managed to get my first Musky in the boat and for anyone that's curius I got a short clip to make the memory relieveable

Didn't find crappie this past week but had a good school of perch going nonstop in the morning. Also here are some pics of a smallmouth and northern we caught.

late reply to Dfisher,  I have fished this body water many years ago, frankly stopped fishing it and plan Canadian trips now.  However when we fished this we have caught some nice northerns and many small one's biggest being 40.5" this had a 10.5" crappie in it.  We have not fished this for Musky but we have a 38" from here. Many smaller walleyes a couple in the 24 to 25" range.  And many nice size crappies pushing 14 to 15". Its a tough lake as the action is slow for walleyes.  Pete Mania's dad caught a 29.5" walleye out of Janes bay a few years ago.  They are in here just not a lot of action.  We have caught tons of Crappies in here when you can locate them.  Lately I hear more stories of Smallmouth and Largemouths.

Fished for a couple of hours before dark last night.  Caught a couple of nice smallmouth in 6-10 ft. on the edge of a weed bed on leeches.  Also located a few crappie.  Any information on where the walleye are hiding would be greatly appreciated. Please message me with any information you would be willing to share.

After the last two days of fronts and cold nights water temps were definitely down again. 63-64 degrees when we started at 10:30 this morning. Fishing was real slow until we found some 66 degree pockets in afternoon. Then we proceeded to wail the snot out of the gills! At one point it was a fish every cast for an hour and a half. Fish ran from 7 1/2 to 8 1/2. All fat and full of eggs. Probably caught 50-60 fish and didn't keep one. This lake has enough double baggers! A bonus was the 15" largemouth my wife caught!
