kab trip on labor day

5 posts in this topic

i have the first week of sept. booked at carlsons and was getting excited already. usually have 10-12 in the group that have been going to canada past years. this year we decided to keep our money in the states and try kab. only three of us on this trip though. one in the group fell off a ladder last week at his cabin in northern wi and busted all his ribs on his right side and shattered his pelvis.layed for 18 hours before his neighbor came to check on him. he is in north chicago now at the va hospital. be there for a month or so then in a wheel chair for a while . wont be bouncing in a boat at kab in sept for sure. problem is we cant find a third for the trip to share the cabin and boat rental and may have to rebook or cancel. i dont mind picking up half of his share but the third buddy cant afford anymore than his share. he was strapped with just his share of the trip. its just killing me to have to cancel or even rebook. i e-mailed jerilyn for our options and havent heard from her yet. should i pick up all his share just to go or rebook if i can in the spring? dont know if she will let me do that though. only can get a refund if they can book the dates , which is unlikely late in the year i would imagine. anyone want to join two guys to share a cabin and boat?this is really killing me. his third was about 500 with lodge and boat.plus gas to get there,food,bait,beer,you get the pic. what would you do? i cant really afford his whole share either.half yes but an extra 500 + confused.gif

we are going up sat through sat and as of right now there are two of us.have been emailing the resort with not much response as to our options. we tried to downgrade to a one bedroom which would save a couple hundred but none available. right now we still have a two bedroom and 18 foot boat reserved for two. hope to hear soon whether we can rebook or what. i know jerilyn is busy but we need to know our options if any to plan.let me know what you may be interested in if anything. thanks for the reply.

Definately call to see what options you have and report back, my bail finger says do it, but I may have a conflict.

got an email from tonya, looks like we are going as planned. she said we could rebook earlier or later for a 1 bedroom but that doesnt work for us . she will give us the cabin we have had reserved at the i bedroom price if there is only 2 of us coming. neither of us wanted to cancel altogether so we will just go with the two of us and if we get another it will ease the cost. we have a couple maybes right now for the third guy.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
