Farley, fishing has been pretty good between rains this past weekend. Of the baits you mention, I would stick with minnows, some success with crawlers in shallower towards evening otherwise jig/minnow or rig with minnow is the most consistent. Pike are lovin sucker minnows and spoons/spinners in or near the weedbeds, smallies hitting on small floating jointed rapalas next to the rock piles also using crayfish rattlin raps.

Expect to move around alot to catch a limit of slot size wallies, they are not tightly schooled up yet. Good luck <}}}}}><

Guts, do you live in the Kab. area? Or I guess I mean are you a resort owner? It sounds like youre always on top of all the action up there. If so which resort, we'll stop in and have a few beers this weekend. My family has had a cabin up there for 50 years I think.
Thanks for the info

Farley, Just got back and had a wonderful time at driftwood lodge. Don and Brenda were incredibly nice people. Like guts said, 75% of fish came on jig/minnow combo. Slot fish came from the edges and big fish came on top. Is that the norm for this lake? Joe

mjgrose,
This year it has been pretty consistent that the bigger or over slot size eyes have come out of the shallower water or say on the top of the feed bed shelves, slot size, saugers and perch hang on the edges of the reefs along with many under slot fish. For awhile lots of nice walleyes came out of the shallow weeds as they were in eatin perch minnows.

When you were here last week did you run into any crappies, they started kickin in last week? Hope those chipmunks didn't drive you nuts. <}}}}}><

Joe, Thanks for the post back, glad you had good fishing and good time. I guess the crappies just began hitting a little on Fri. Hope Don doesn't sell soon, he is a good resort operator. <}}}}}><

guts, no crappies but don said they should start anytime. The chipmonks were very friendly and kept the kids entertained all week. They should have a good winter! It was my first time on Kab, needless to say, be booked a week next year. Beautiful lake, good fishing and very good people in that area. Joe

      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!
