Lake Namakagon, Bayfield County
MOON PHASE (81%)
Just got back yesterday from fishing there for three days. We were part of a tournament of 64 guys (Wormsoakers Club out of Rockford, IL). I think 13-15 legal muskies were caught with a 40 something incher being the largest. Fishing conditions were bad. It was cold, the lake was high with all the rain and overall very few people caught anything. for more info PM me. We stayed at the Lakewood Resort and was very pleased with the accommodations.
Straight out from Lakewoods there’s a hump that comes to 10-11 feet out of 30 + feet. I was casting to the top of the hump right before dark as a storm was coming in. Daytime I would work the edges. You can see fish/bait fish marks if you use your depth finder.

46° - 50° F
61° - 65° F
Fall bite is starting. Caught my biggest smallmouth just under 22 inches off the hump in front of Lakewood’s using a shiver minnow ( same as a jigging Rapala). Thanks to Lakewood’s for a great stay and Tom at Lakewood’sfor his advice to try the humps for action. Caught walleye and smallmouth. Fall colors are starting to show.
Heading up to the lake next week. This will be a first time on the body of water. Any tips for crappies, locations, depth, ect? Also looking to do some Muskie fishing if anyone has some pointers on depth/lures?

The week is finally over at Namakagon. Muskie fishing was okay with landing one 38 inch tiger early in the week. A lot of other followers throughout the week...crappie were on and off but managed to bring some nice ones in...walleye was good, but must were short. Only 1 keeper and one 21.5 inch fish that was thrown back. Overall a good week up at the lake!
