Is Kabetogama a good Fall walleye lake? I'm aware of the slot and how long it has been implace. I also heard that Namakan is better in the fall? I want an honest answer, not an economically driven one! Thanks Jim W

Hi Jim,
I fish kab/Namakan lakes 5-6 times every year. My last trip is the first week in Sept. so I don't know if I'll be of much help. I mainly fish Namakan and the east end of Kab. I stay at a resort on the Ash River which is the closest access to Namakan. Around mid summer the Walleyes will move up on the many reefs on Namakan and provide some good action. My best fishing is usually in August so Iam sure late Sept/ Oct would be as good or better. By the way, the fishing has improved since the slot was Implimented. My personal best over the past two years on Namakan is 8#6oz which was released. Hope that helps you some.

Thanks Dusty!!
Is there anyone who fishes Kab a lot and has a good understanding of the Fall bite? DUsty, how far out of the Ash(how long) does it take to hit Kab and or Nam?
I'm trying to figure out if I want to hit Kab hard for a week or do a combination of Kab-Nam.
Any information about the Fall walldog bite on Kab and Nam-- average location and presentations would be of great service!! Thanks again! Keep them rods bendin'!!!

The Ash river has four resorts. The river it self is a no wake zone,so where you stay dictates how long it takes to hit the lake. Once out of the no wake area you enter Sullivan bay. Its about a 2mi boat ride to the main lake from there.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
