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.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!
