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.

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
