Fishing Namakan Sept. 8th-14th. I would like some help with location and presentation for pike,walleye,perch,and crappie. Any advice would help considerably.

DW,
I would suggest possibly spending some time in the west end of Kab, the namakan bite has been somewhat tough lately(inlaws were up 4 days last weekend and did poorly in the Namakan Island area). Crappies try Lost Bay, suspended over 20-25'.
Dont overlook deep (35-45') water for walleye's, jig/rainbow minnow is standard but crawlers/spinners/lindy's may work. I was on Rainy 2 weeks ago and all our larger fish came from that depth range. For pike I love to troll large shadraps or similar plugs during the day along islands and reef areas, or deeper off weeds. Last year i was on namakan the second week of Sept and did well, but this year has been tougher overall on namakan from what i've seen. Enjoy, its realy nice and look for some awesome displays of the aurora borealis ("northern lights") at night, they can be unreal this time of year.

    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
    • World famous. Browned pork, Italian seasoning, onions, garlic. Then hash browns with cheese.
    • Season is young yet fellas, hopefully it stays dry for a while, we ran into lots of water and crops as well. The kid dropped the only rooster we saw on Saturday , lots of hens though. The neighbor out that away saw a small brood of chicks 2 weeks ago, real late hatch but hopefully they came out ok in the rain last week.
    • Spent a week grouse hunting around Grand Rapids. Left on Saturday Oct 13 because I tired of running into Ruffed Grouse Society yahoos using Minnesota birds to bring in $$$ so they can buy more white pickups with Ruffed Grouse Society painted on the side driven by PHD's that are clueless as to why there was such a disparity between the 2017 drumming count and the actual number of birds on the ground. Saw or heard a total of 12 grouse and 7 woodcock for the week. My experience was the same as knoppers.   
    • Saw nothing yesterday. Too many crops and too much water everywhere.
    • I thought that was what it was.   Thanks for the ID.
    • yea they eat up the acorns. I have soo many acorns, the tree rats cannot put a dent in them.
    • I have always liked the blue jays also. SO much food here they all get along pretty well. 
    • parise looks very slow out there, he was terrible in OT. hopefully the wild can turn this poor play around soon.
    • OK I am now a fan of blue jays. had a woodpecker, a larger one, not the downy on my house, it pecked a few times, I pounded on the wall it flew off into the tree, as I watched it through the window, it landed on the side of the garage ready to go to business, and a blue jay flew at it and chased it off, it happened two times, then the woodpecker flew off. I also had a blue jay chase off bees, they made a paper nest on my eaves in one day, I watched a blue jay land on it, and jump around, the bees would come out, the jay would fly off. then the jay repeated this numerous times until the nest fell off, bees left.
