Pine Point lodge, Resort & Motel talked to their long time guest Gene aka Geno. He said on Sunday, he and his group had a really, really good day of bass fishing. Several in the 16" to 19+ range which were all released. "They were under cover in about 3-4' and we used pumpkin colored wacky worms; several smaller bass in the 16" range were caught using a leech and slip bobber. We caught a 21" walleye in 10' of water. It hit a black and white rapala on the way up." Terry, from Oklahoma, using a purple and brown net zero, pretty much like a Senko, fished in 4-5' and caught an 18 7/8" small mouth bass on Saturday evening. Out doing himself, on Sunday, he hooked up on a huge 19" small mouth. Pam Rainwater took bragging rights with her 35” northern pike. Nice fish!
Bruce Beste, owner of Cabins on Crane, reported that fishing has been good with jigs tipped with either minnows or leeches. Steve and Grace, guests at Cabins on Crane, who are from Web Lake, WI, caught several fish including one 21” and two 23” walleyes in 18’ of water. They also hooked up on a 4 pound smallmouth bass casting alongside a sand beach. They enjoyed a terrific shore lunch.
Other guests, 12 year old, Brock, his cousins Jack and Carter, and Uncle Tom, from Wichita Kansas, reported catching (and releasing) 10 Walleyes during his first fishing trip to Namakan Lake. Plus, he said, Russ is a better cook than his mom (but don’t tell mom). Brock’s party had a shore lunch fish fry on My Island.
