Kab and Namakan both have great populations of Smallies. 8-15 ft weed edges. Play the wind to your advantage. X Raps or your standard lindy rig will work tipped with a leech. With the live bait rig you also have a good chance of catching walleyes also.

Lake Kabetogama, sunday.

Caught on spinner baits (slow retrieval) casting into windy sides of rock piles...and holy crap was it windy.

Nice smallies! I'll be heading to Crane in the third week of August, Saturday through Saturday. We'll be hitting Mukooda for largemouth for two days, but will be in Crane the rest of the time, as we're staying on Bear Island. So, I'd love some advice -- short of drawing me a map of your hot spot, of course -- on finding active smallmouth in late August. I know how to find the little guys hanging near the rocks and cover near shore, but after reading this forum all summer, I've gotten the impression that the big guys (and the numbers) are in the deep water, especially in the dog days. I've got a entry-level Garmin fish finder and new drop-shot gear, just need to know where to use them (i.e. how deep, and what kind of patterns should I look for on the screen, etc.?) I've been coming to the area since I was a kid (I'm 35) and it's so great to "meet" on this forum so many people who love the area like I do! My Grandpa and Grandma Huff used to live in the Narrows.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
