Kitchi

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any info on Kitchi Lake on the Cass Lake Chain? We will be staying at a resort on the lake next weekend. Should we be looking at bordering lakes for some action? I will have my son with me, so any type of action would be good, walleye action would be awesome.

TK,

I fished it once about 10 years ago, trolling for walleye on the right side as you come past the bridge by the Pike Hole restaurant. Fun fact, I caught about a 14-15 inch walleye that I was reeling in and my son (who was about 12 at the time and loved netting the fish) stood waiting with the net. About half way back to the boat I see a boil start circling my walleye and then I see a fin and boom a muskie hits my poor walleye. I start reeling like crazy trying to land both fish and my son's eyes nearly pop out of his head as he saw the 40+ beast. He started shaking as the thing got closer but about 3 feet from the boat the muskie lets go of my walleye and my son nets a chewed up 15" walleye. It still cooked up pretty good as it was already "tenderized" LOL

My best recommendation to fish Kitchi would be to give Brian Jones a call at First Choice Guide Service, he has been fishing the Cass chain for 16 years and really knows his stuff. Book him for a half day or full day early in your trip and he will show you how to fish the lake and put you on fish. Mention to him that Windy sent you and he will give you a discount off his already low prices. He is a great young family man who will share his knowledge of the lake with you. Have a great trip!

Thanks for the heads up on the post, good info. Hopefully I can put the son on some nice fish.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
