Finished our week up on Lake Namakgon today. Never got on to a Muskie, had about a 30-35 incher on at the boat and came off. Caught some more nice keeper crappie to end the week. No more walleyes either. Wasn't the best week, but also wasn't the worst. Can't wait to be back again for our yearly trip!

Been up on Namkagon since Saturday and leave Sunday. Caught a lot of keeper crappies on jigs. Walleyes have been short with one keeper while trolling flicker shads. Haven't even seen a Muskie yet while throwing bulldawgs, showgirls and pacemakers. If anyone has any tips or spots feel free to PM me! Would love to catch a big one before we head out for the year.

Was on Lake Namakagon (or is it Namekagon... I'm not sure) from Sunday July 23rd to Sunday July 30th.  I rented pontoon boat, but it didn't have a fish finder.  I fished all around the lake where I saw weeds further out from shore looking to catch pike.  I ended up catching four total, but nothing big.  The largest might have been 24 inches.  I don't really have any large lures for pike or musky, so I was chucking an old sunfish lure.  I did catch a nice largemouth towards the end of the lake where the Namakagon River starts.

Went fishing for some crappies on 7-2 & 7-3 before sunset, looked for down timber along shoreline with weeds nearby  first couple of spots only a largemouth bass and some blue gills, then we hit the crappies, caught approx. 20 ...largest 11" my 8 yr old landed this one on 7-2.  Went back out same spot on 7-3 caught another dozen largest 11 3/4" put them all back.  Also my 8 yr caught a 18 3/4" northern.  Game Warden came by and said we were the only ones catching anything out their (this was Monday Night).  Fished for Musky along the shoreline for approx. 30 minutes had either a nice northern or Musky strike fished hit the spinner, flashed and swam away, all in all for not spending a lot of time fishing...we had a lot of action.

Sort of figured there would be no replies. Pretty tight lipped up there I guess.

Coming up on Saturday for our annual family vacation. Not a lot of traffic on this thread so I'll ask: how's the fishing been and are the mayflys done or is the hatch still coming?
