Voyageur Park Lodge and Kabetogama Fishing

3 posts in this topic

Greetings!

Our group will be staying at VPL and fishing Kabetogama next week for the first time and I'm looking for any tips/information I can get on the Northern, Walleye, Smallmouth and Perch(?) fishing. What live bait has been working best?

It looks like the weather is going to heat up this week so it should be interesting to see what affect it has on the "bite". Thanks in advance for any information.

Hello Kong, Fishing has been pretty good. Guys in the area are doing well on Pike, Smallies and the eyes are picking up. Groups casting x raps, mepp's, spoons or anything else you can cast are catching great numbers of Pike and Smallies. Recently the walleye bite is picking up. Anglers are using jigs or lindy's with minnows, leeches, and crawlers. No one bait is really out shinning any other right now, but we are not far away from the lindy leech and crawler bite. Good luck and enjoy Voyageur's it's beutiful. Take care

Casey at VPL will everything he can to put you on the fish. He keeps pretty current on where fish are caught, and gets out himself when he can. I'll be there on the 23rd of June. Hope you do well.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
