SATCHMO was right on!

9 posts in this topic

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!

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.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
