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!

Windy

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

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
