      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 was right on!

Fished Kab both Saturday and Sunday, excellent results in 25 to 30 foot depths with jig and minnow. Some people fishing shallow picking up a few scattered fish. Surprisingly the lake was not busy with the good bite happening. I imagine the Canadian opener drew a few people away. Lots of Wisconsin boats on the water as usual. No problem finding enough slot fish. Good call Satchmo! Looking forward to my next trip.

Glad to hear about your successful weekend!! The opener was busier than usual this year, but there are plenty of spots to get away from the crowds. They seem to gather on the perrennial hot spots and leave the rest to the more adventurous. I'm bringing the whole family up to Kab. in July, til then I'll just be bouncing around. Good Luck the rest of the season. Talk to you soon.

Hey guys,
I know it's early, but I'm coming up there in the Fall(Second week in Sept). Any info about typical depths and strategies for walldogs would be greatly appreciated! Never fished her, but have heard many wonderful stories about the Beautiful Kabetogama!!

I am headed up to Kab this weekend. Haven't been able to make it the last couple of years. Any suggestions on where to start for walleyes?

Holaway, it's going to be cool this week in the north country so I would guess the fish won't move much from where they are now. Start fishing in 25 to 30 feet of water off an island point (Wolf, Knox, Chase, Martin) and you should find fish. Don't be afraid to go deeper. You should be able to see fish on your electronics. Check out the wind direction for the few days prior to your arrival and start on that side of the island. Check out the posts in the Opener Results. I won't be back at Kab for three weeks so keep us posted on your results! (big minnows are still the way to go)

Thanks for the update Holaway. Tough conditions with the week of lousy weather before the weekend. The person you saw fishing crawlers on a slip sinker rig was probably my brother-in-law. He is a die hard crawler fanatic. Although I know he was using minnows the first couple of weekends. Glad to hear you caught enough fish to keep it interesting. See you on the lake!

I am going to be up at Kabby camping in August with my 2 sons (age 7&6).I was wondering ia anyone could give me some info. about fishing for walleye and smallies.I've been up there for the past 3 years as we love the area but my fishing success hasn't been very good and my boys are wondering why their dad doesn't ever catch fish.Any help would be appreciated.

This past weekend was slow, caught enough to keep interesting. In the rain Friday NE side of Wolf was on in 15 to 20 feet. Caught them on both spinners and jig and minnow. As the weather got nicer the fishing slowed and the fish went deeper 30 to 35 feet.
Sat and Sun caught walleyes deep 35 to 45 on an island north of Knox near shore. Mostly using bottom bouncer and spinners. Mid morning they are still up at 20 to 25 feet. Did see one guy hitting a lot with a slip sinker and crawler. Also had some luck with just a plain sinker, hook, a couple of yellow beads, and minnow combo.
Water level is still rising lots of drift wood floating around.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
