Last day for this fall out on Namakagon. Managed to catch a 3rd Muskie in the past 2 days. Caught a 39 incher! Can't wait to be back up here next August! Good luck and post your reports on here!

I fished the lake once about five summers ago and haven't returned since. There was nice structure and enough water to avoid other boats, but we weren't catching a lot that day, it was really weed choked at the time, and we just got a bad first impression that lasted.

We caught a few decent bass and northerns, but no muskies. Probably not a good enough sample size, though.

I do believe the Hayward musky fest winner was from Namakagon a few years ago, I think a 48 incher?

I have a general question. Overall how would anyone rate the fishing on this lake for pike/bass/Muskie etc. I'm looking for a new lake to stay on for the family vacation next year. Can send pm if so inclined. Not looking for spots/secrets. Just an overall opinion? Thanks.

Up here on Namakagon the next 2 days trying to catch some muskies. Any recommendations for where to go to find them? We are casting bucktails and a sucker off the back of the boat. Any tips would be appreciated!

Crappies were hit and miss like I said. We just went from weed-bed to weed-bed throwing little crappie jigs. The dozen we caught, we spotted them feeding on minnows so if you can find find some minnows in the weed-beds you for sure should be able to find the crappies! Good Luck!

Went to Namakagon this past week. Fishing wasn't amazing but still got on fish. Caught quite a few small walleyes and one 19 incher...crappie were hit and miss, caught a dozen one afternoon....pike can be found in the weeds, biggest was 26 inches...also while trolling for walleyes we caught on to quite a few smallies during the week, biggest was a 17 incher. Overall a pretty good week fishing!

Hello all. We will be taking our annual trip to Namakagon in about 3 weeks. We've had mixed success over the years (been coming up for almost 18 years now) with panfish but always looking for tips on what to use/where to go. What I am really looking for is info on Walleye fishing this lake. I've heard they are there to catch, but other than a couple of random hookups in the past, I've NEVER been able to catch them when actually targeting them. Is the walleye fishing still any good? What are the recommended tactics and areas? My daughter just turned 4 and my son is 7 so I'm looking for something else to fish with them besides panfish (neither have the patience to come with me on Musky trips Wink ) Any advice would be much appreciated!!!

Well the panfish are still hitting great most trips out the past few days plastics and live bait are the norm right now and a popper on a fly rod is always a hoot too! No walleye trips the past few days or nights most have wanted panfish and for good reason they taste great and they are about action to just like the guys fishing for them! Colors of plastics or jig heads will make a big difference some days you will just have to play around to find out which colors work best for you on a given day. try shallow and deep the fish are hanging at all depths right now from super shallow to 10 plus feet. If your coming to the area please give us a call on our inland trips its A NO FISH NO PAY POLICY so if we can't get you fish you don't pay it's that easy. give us a call today 715-413-0336

Hey Kid, We came back on 6/6. Yes, the walleye limit is 3, and size limit is 15" to 20", but you may have 1 fish over 24". I'm not sure about the trolling yet. We caught crappies on minnows and 1" gulp emerald shiners. They were right in the pencil weeds. If they've moved out, and the gills in, you should be able to get them with minnows or twister tails over the cabbage. We caught our walleyes on the windblown weed edges (cabbage was only about 8 ft deep), with leech/slip bobber and jig/minnow combinations. Hope this helps. Have fun, and good luck.

Hey griz! did some really nice damage on pike chain. Milicent was money last weekend for crappie.

Nelson was treating us good as well. that deep hole off the landing gave up some nice crappie and a couple eyes.

Good luck guys
