I have gone to Kab for the last four years, around that same time, and will be going again this year, from the 12th to the 16th. Sugarbush has always been good, also around blind ash bay. As far as bobber fishing, we usually sit around shallow rocky bottoms near deep water. It seems the hotspots change year to year depending on water depth, last year I think was high water and just about any island produced that had wind hammering into it, and we had wind every day. The first year we did well throwing crankbaits into the tiny bays. I guess what I'm saying is try the main spots and find a pettern, unless a major weather system comes through the fish usually stick to a similar pattern for that short a period of time.

Over all leeches have been the best on a red hook. We have also had pretty decent luck with a black hook w/ blue and white beads above it(mostly on the cloudy days). Last year however night crawlers worked well. We have always brought minnows, but have never done real well with them. While slip bobber fishing chartreuse/orange jigs with a leech are deadly.

      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!!!

      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.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      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.
