First Trip to Kab this weekend

5 posts in this topic

Heading up there this weekend for the first time ever. We are staying at Idlewild resort. Any helpful information about the fishing for any species right now would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Try topwater for pike, if they are hitting yet. They get active about this time through the fall.

You picked a good resort. We just got home from there. Pick Tim, Jerry or Ron's brain when you get there. They'll have some good walleye advice. It wouldn't hurt to have Tim or his dad guide you early in the week. You might glean some info that could help you for the rest of the week. Also cast rocky shorelines and windblown points for smallies and northerns. Watch for rocks tho. They have a way of sneaking up on your boat by shore. We caught a couple walleyes too doing that the last 2 weeks. Have a good trip. My family and I love it there.

Ya, it's me. I heard you did ok after we left. Shoot, Junior even caught a sauger the other night before he came home. That Wallye fishing is usually too boring for him. We hope to get back up there this fall. We'll see.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
