northern fishing end of june

2 posts in this topic

will be on kab june 28-july 5. will be primarily northern fishing. does anybody speed troll big safety pin spinner baits with any success?i have tried it on sandpoint and namakan on the canadian side and done really well.usually rip them right along in the top foot or so of water right along the weed bed edge. was wondering if some one had some ideas as to bays that have good weed beds that are close to deep water. i will be at pineaire but am willing to run as far east as hammer bay. every body i talk to at resorts up there says that most people fish walleye on kab and very few fish northern.i have fished kab a few times over the past 15 years so i know it reasonably well, but have always fished walleye. thanks in advance for any info

Anywhere I have ever gone in Canada and Northern Minnesota, I have always done the same thing for Northern Pike. Contstantly moving using my trolling motor, I cast towards the shoreline and retrieve over and over using Mepps Scycolps. Any color works, but the more the sun is out, the more those lures reflect and the more fish we catch. We fish every island, shoreline, whatever the whole time we are there. We stay at Deer Horn resort and we go the very first week in June. There are 4 of us in the boat and we limit out on Northerns every day. Never a problem. That early in the year there is not much in the way of green weeds. Everything is pretty much still brown. When we do find green weeds, we catch more Northerns in those areas. We eventually limit out on Walleye, but the problem is more about the size than anything. We caught some great 24-26" Walleye last year, but they all had to go back. Should be some major league tropheys coming in a few more years.

I have noticed the Northerns are a smaller in Kab. Biggest one we ever caught was 37" and we generally catch 26-30". They are good eaters, but I would like to see bigger.

I don't know if you have a radio in your boat, but another thing is that we always listen to music. If we are in an area where there are other people fishing, we will turn it down as not everyone likes it. Bob Marley and Jimmy Buffett have never hurt our fishing. And we are in the boat from sunup to sundown, so we like to be entertained.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
