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!

Fished late morning. First water temps were around 60 degrees and not much happening. Started moving, found some 65 degree water and the gills. Ended up with around 30. Biggest were around 8 1/2". Fish ran from 7" to 8 1/2". Did not see any beds. Most of the fish were males just heading into shallows. Heavy storms in the afternoon probably will really mix the water and temps will be a mess for a day or two.

Guided out on Namakagon on Friday, cold and nasty weather wise most of the day. We managed to do good on the crappies in the morning, as the afternoon got later the bite seemed to slow.  The crappies were  pretty   good average size, about 10 & 11 mostly. We also caught a few bass and pike too. Water temps were 54-56.

Good luck and good fishing,

Hi anyone who might read this as this thread looks about dead unless its the middle of summer or middle of winter lol Yawn but in any case it won't hurt to put this out there as I take any help I can get! I'm just looking for some water up dates and any info on fish size in this lake. I have fished it a couple of times before and have got crappie, bluegill, walleye and of corse a million snake northern Dull but was just wondering what the upper size classes of those fish are in this lake? That is if anyone knows? I am looking to come up and fish it around the end of May and would love any tips or ideas on where to start looking for those upper class fish.... That is if there in the I just want to do some good ol trophy hunting and don't plan on keeping but a few for some meals well I'm in town. So trust in the fact that I know better then to plunder a resource. If you would like to PM me to keep this all under the radar I don't blame you. Other wise if nobody has any info they would like to share its understandable Wink Lips Sealed Wink Lips Sealed

thanks in advance

and in case your wondering if I speak the truth here is my "word" in video form ;)
