First trip to Kab

Recommended Posts

Guest

My wife and I are coming to fish Kab for the first time the week of 8/2. We will be staying at the Rocky Point Resort. Being our first trip I'm looking for any help on what may be working for walleye at that time. Might as well make my weekly trips to the tackle shop worth while and stock up on what works. I will also be making some solo outings for pike and smallies. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Phil,
Call the lodging facility that you have your reservations with he should be able to update you on a weekly basis with the activity out of that resort.

Lindy rigs or lead head jigs work well tipped with a crawler or leach. You will need 1/4 ounce up to 1 ounce weghts to cover the wind conditions and depth. On the lindy rigs you could start out with a plaine hook with a red bead or try adding a blade. Bring some Rapala shap raps and try some long line trolling. Sucker minows work well for pike. Good Luck

Phil,
Last year I made my first trip to Kab with my sister and My father. None of us had ever been there but with some help from our hosts at the resort we did fairly well. I can't remember what the name of the resort was but it was on the southwest corner of the lake. Out about 300 yards there was a small island and it stretched about a half mile out. We did alright there. Straight North of there there is also a rock pile that runs about 100 yards straight east and west. There are two bouys at each end that mark where it drops back off. Watch out though cause one of them is very hard to spot. In fact when we found the spot it was because we didnt see the bouy and dam near smoked the rock that was just inches under the water! Slowly troll down both sides of it or just drift depending on the wind. Use a 4-5 foot snell with a #6 or #8 red hook tipped with a minnow. The water is 15'-25' on each side. We slammed walleyes there. More towards evening though. Caught a few 25". Good luck to ya!

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
