Looking for pointers, no one looking at the kab/nam forum

5 posts in this topic

I am heading up Thursday night to the Ash River and I have left a few posts on the Kam/Nam/Crane Fourm and no one is out there. I am looking for a few pointers on depth, presentaion, luers and bait. I havn't been up since the 4th of July so this is a stiff learning curve for starters. Last year I fished around the same time and mid 20's on sand bottom did alright. Using buckshots and fat heads. Chartreuse and glow white. Other than that lots of staring at the empty holes. Any pointer much appreciated. Thnaks in advance...good luck on the ice!

Hey Buddy!

Sorry I can't help, but I haven't been fishing the Ash River. Hope you get some assistance from someone who has.

I haven't fished there since last summer and then it was electrofishing for the DNR at night. I haven't been angling on Kab since October of 1979.

However this was the report on the radio Friday morning for Kab. Pike are moving deeper to 18-25'. Walleyes around 30' on glow jigs and minnows. Long Point was one spot mentioned.

I was writing in the computer room while listening to Jerry's report from the kitchen but thought he mentioned Long Point in relation to Kab. That's what happens when you have one old fart listening to another old fart.

      I would suggest concentrating on panfish this spring from a boat or shore. Your chances of success vs trout would be astronomical! These are hard earned life experiences. Learn how to fly cast. period. Trying to learn fly fishing on  trout stream will be a lesson in frustration as you will be tangled in more trees than the stream. Fly fishing from a boat or shore allows you to figure out all of the nuances of the sport before moving on to a tree canopy!     Good luck on your journey!

      Wow that stinks. I see Springsteel put up a pic in fb of 27 lb pike caught out there yesterday somewhere. Are big suckers easy to find in town right now?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
