Kab or Namakan?

Recommended Posts

Ode

I posted questions earlier and got no response, so I will try again. We will be up for a week in Aug. 9-16. I was wondering if fishing would be best on Kab or Namakan? Will have a 16 foot boat with a 60 hp on it. Would be interested if fishing walleyes, bass or northerns. Any tips you could offer would be appreciated.
Thanks, Ode

Ode, I would bet on Namakan as your best bet.I will be on the Ash River Aug 4 to the 8th. I can post a report on the afternoon of the 8th.I fished Namakan the week of July 7th and found the fish in 23 to 28 ft. The owner of Frontier resort should be able to point out some spots to try. Crawlers and leeches will be your best bet for the walleyes. I don't fish for pike much, so can't help you there other Than try the shallow bays along the weed lines.
Good luck, Dan

Dusty, thanks for your input. I have vacationed on Kab before but it has been over at Park Point resort and have fished mostly that end of Kab. Fishing Namakan will be a new adventure and I look forward to it. I will keep looking for your post on the 8th.
Thank you very much, Ode

I love Park Point Resort. I stay there at least three times a year and fish walleyes and big pike out of Kab. The walleyes should be up on the reefs this time of year and they can be big. It is amazing how the slot has revived this lake in such a short time. August is also the time when the 40 plus inch pike seem to be cruising the deep weed lines on this lake. Throw bucktails or suicks at them and you could be rewarded with a trophy. I would target the Grassies, Nebraska, Stoltinksi, and Mud.

I would say Namakan would be the best bet, it seems to be better then kab later in the year, there is less algae bloom for one thing.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch teelsnoften so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.

      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.

      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
