      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

SATCHMO,

Well, I have never fished Kab, but I figured that since you have given the time to write, I would ask you a thing or two.
First, have you ever icefished the Ash River?
Second, how is the walleye fishing on Kab and would it be accessable for someone with out a sled? Any and all info will help!!! Keep them rods a bendin'!!! Jim W

Never fished Kab before, but my wifer and I are headed up to Ebel's for our 25th in mid-June this year. I'm wondering about fishing on Namakan for eyes. Any suggestions on presentations and locations?

All of my fishing up there has been done on open water, but I have some freinds that live
up in the area that ice fish it. They spend
almost all of their time either in front of
the Ash River or at the mouth of Blind Ash
Bay. Apparently last winter they caught alot
of fish in both areas all winter long. They
take snowmobiles down there,and I'm not sure
if it's accessible any other way. I was going
to make a trip this winter but my buddy and
his honey decided to go south for the winter.
They sure picked a good one to go??? The open
water fishing was very good last year right
through the fall last year.Good numbers and
size distibution and I'm really looking
forward to opener in May!!!!!! SATCHMO

Good to see you on here again. I am already locked into either 3 or 4 long (4-5 day) weekends up on Namakan/Kab this year, cannot wait. I plan to do some more experimenting/searching. Will definitly let you know if I find any new promising spots.
Take care and Good Fishing. Xplorer

Xplorer,
Good to hear from you. I have a few trips lined up myself, including the opener and Memorial weekend. I sure hope the fishing continues to improve. If your not going up for the opener I'll send you a note on the how and where's.
Good fishing and keep in touch.
Dusty

Dusty,
I am hoping to be up there for memorial day weekend also, just waiting to see if my wife can get off that friday(would get up there Thurs evening). Will let you know for sure prior to then. Last memorial day we had some fun smallmouth action. I will probably just hit the St Louis river here in duluth for opener with my father-in-law. Always catch fish but the crowds aren't much fun.
Here's to open water!!!! Xplorer

      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!

      I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!

      Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years.  Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early   Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately.  Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.
