Got out on Thursday for some bluegills and tip-ups for pike in 10-12'.  Measured an exact 6 1/2" of ice.  No action.

There was some walleye action in Junek's Bay last week.  Check out Four Seasons Resort's photos on F/B.

The wind has been crazy the last couple of days.  Next time out I plan to target some crappies in deeper water.  I also plan to put some cement blocks in my Fish Trap Pro so it won't blow over when I check tip-ups, etc.

Hey all,

Missed making up there last June. Especially you guys brave enough to ice fish, ugh! I’m an old guy who’s bones won’t agree with those temps. But boy do I love Lake Namakagon. Started going there in ‘72 when Rich & Alice Sedlak owned Richard’s Resort on Garden Lake. Last I knew it had become Telemark Point but then heard that Telemark (more towards Cable) went bust. Tell me more fish stories so I can live vicariously till June. Stop at Pla-Mors it’s the best place for a quick bite and great food. Drinks ain’t bad either! I hope to make it up there next June when the weather agrees with me more. Any word on whether or not Eric is ever going to rebuild and reopen the Namakagon Chief or not? Or anyone at Pla-Mors know anything about that?  I miss Eric’s Mom since she passed away. If you see Eric and he’s reopened tell him to keep stocking Myers Jamaican Rum. I’ll be by for my Rum & Cokes if he’s open. Otherwise Pla-Mors usually stocks it. I’m the old tall skinny guy with the Green Lund boat and Red Toyota P/U with the white camper top. Both places have a great view from their bars. Can’t recall the ID’s of the guys last Oct who posted those fish pix but that Smallie looked like 5+lbs! Maybe BIGGER! NICE! They do grow some healthy smallies there. It’s my home away from home at heart. Rock the boat guys! Just not on the ice. ?? John <><

From Minocqua, we were at 5.5" on the most frozen portions, haven't snuck out to deeper water to see what's there as I forgot my spud this a.m.  I suspect after watching a smaller dude spud his way out, that there is 3-4 out further in the lake, but am not sure just yet...

Anyone have an ice conditions report... like off of the Loon Saloon... out deep?  Good 6” of ice?

Thanks in advance

Just left Namakagon about an hour ago and have been there since Wednesday. Managed one 42 inch Muskie on Wednesday and missed one this morning, also saw one on Thursday. Also a nice bonus pike and Walleye while Muskie fishing this week. Always great to be up north no matter what the result is!

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.

GM, That's a hell of a nice smallie, congrats. How deep are the humps?

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.
