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.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
