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 ;)

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!!!
