Kabetogama - Namakan - Ash River Fishing Report
Kabetogama-Namakan Fishing Report 8-24-14
Guess fall season is close as school has or is starting throughout our state.
This means some of the year’s best fishing may be getting in gear. Days getting shorter & water cooling usually triggers game fish it’s time to fatten up for winter.
A look at the past week, water temp in low to mid 70s, water level normal for this time of year & water clarity above average with very little algae.
Anglers are working the reefs and drop off structured shorelines in the 25’ depth range for walleyes, also catching many jumbo perch in the 10” plus class.
Leeches and minnows have been the best bait choice, using a jig head or slip sinker rig. Slow movement of boat and your bait tends to be another common denominator for success.
Pike aggressively taking artificial baits, stick baits, and jerk baits tossed up near deep weed edges. Suckers presented with bobbers is a bait this species can’t resist.
Smallmouth season in full swing many in the 20” plus category caught. Best success has been artificial lures used on shorelines and edges of rock piles.
Still plenty of time left for great fishing and wildlife viewing is at its peak!!
