I would try a leach or crankbait. Fish usually don't go after the bobbers real well this time of the year unless I have been using the wrong color bobber. grin.gif

find some good rocks . Tie a 1/8 oz. jig with twister tail and leech with a slip bobber. Cast it in the rocky areas until you start hittin them. works pretty good and sometimes you get a wally.

Thanks Fishroger, any other tips for Kab would be a great help. Like I said will be up there the last two weeks in July. I know this isn't the best fishing time but thats when the wifey likes to go. We are staying at a resort Idlewild great resort stayed there last year and caught a few walleyes but not alot. Just want to catch fish any species really. Thanks for your tip.

My wife and I just got back from Kab/Nam this past Monday. We had awesome smallmouth action! We used Berkley Power Tubes during the day and in the evening switched to Rapala Skitter Props. The top water action was a blast! Lots of fish in the 16-18 inch range. We found most of the smallies on rock piles/island that had access to deep water near by... which is almost every island! smile.gif Good Luck!

Hey Steve. Sounds like your first trip to the area was successful. What did you think of the area? Will you go back there again? I find it's pretty tough to shake off the Voyageur's bug once you're bitten. Our group is already planning for next year.

JD-

We had a great time. Thanks for asking. This first trip with my wife was really a scouting trip for later this fall when I head up with my group of college buddies. We like to take a trip once a year and are getting a little tired of the drive to Canada. The park is about half the distance, if not closer, and so far the fishing has been good. We're planning to head up the weekend after Labor Day.

So to answer your question, yes, I will definitely be going back! grin.gif Thanks for your advice on previous posts!

Maybe we'll see you up there sometime.

Steve

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
