Beaches?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi Fellas!
I'm heading up to Kabe from the 9-16 of Aug, and does anyone know of any beaches on Kabe that I could take a little guy to go swimming. I was thinking that it would be fun to boat to a private one and have a shore lunch. What do you think?

Thanks!

Boy, beaches are kind of hardc to come by on this lake if I remember correctly there is one on the far southwest corner of the main basin, not sure if it is private beach for a resort or not but i knkow it is there. As far as a secluded one, I think there is a small, very small one on the east side of Potato island. THere is a little campsite or picnic table there too. I hope I am right about it being Potato. I dont have a map in front of me right know but I know it is on a smaller island on the east end of the main basin. If you ahve a good map, it should show the picnic site.

There are at least 4 or 5 very nice natural beaches on Kab, as well as the public beach at woodenfrog campgrounds. Wait and see if Fishkab posts, he will know the island names for the beach locations. If he does not post in the next day or so I will find out and post same later. guts <{{{{{><

Go Fish, There is day use site on the northeast side of Moxie Island. It is a great spot. As a day use site, no one can camp there. It has a fire ring, tables, and is set up for just what you want to do. It has a great beach and goes out a long ways as shallow water. It shows up on the park maps. Easy to find and not that far from any of the resorts. Have fun!!!!!! Fishkab

Go-Fish, I'm not much into beaches but if you ever get in the area of Namakan Island make a run down to Junction Bay. On the west side of the bay a small waterfall enters the lake. Its a very cool spot to anchor in the little cove between the 2 chutes and jump in the lake for a swim.

Don, the owner of Driftwood should be helpful to you for beach locations as well, he is also aguide and he does know the lake well, Hopefully fishing will pick up its pace by the time of your arrival. Good luck, guts <{{{{{><

      Ahh yes, the Cool Cats!  I remember the first one!  Glad to hear this is still going on. I spend a lot of time on the Horseshoe Chain, but unfortunately I won't be able to make this event.  However, I would like to donate some items on behalf of Clam Outdoors.  Shoot me an email on where I can send them and I'll get some items sent out... mjohnson at iceteam.com. Thanks and have fun out there!!

      Tom Heinrich, who most recently was the large lake specialist covering Lake of the Woods for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, will now supervise Mille Lacs Lake fisheries management. “We’re pleased that Tom Heinrich has accepted this new role. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from other large walleye lakes in Minnesota and elsewhere, strong scientific skills and an open ability to communicate with and relate to various groups in the public,” said Brad Parsons, central region fisheries manager. Heinrich begins as Mille Lacs Lake fisheries supervisor on Wednesday, Jan. 24, at the office in Garrison. He will oversee the extensive field operations that happen throughout the course of the year to assess fish populations and harvests; work with fisheries research and other partners to study walleye productivity; study the potential impacts of big fish on young walleye survival; review goals for spawning stock biomass; and coordinate other work needed to answer complex questions about the lake. “This is an important position because Mille Lacs always has been a vital and popular fishery and there is still a lot to learn about the lake and the changes we are seeing. Adding Tom to the team to perform the detailed, complex work needed will benefit the resource, the DNR and groups with an interest in the lake,” Parsons said. Heinrich begins his new role as the DNR continues efforts to understand and improve a walleye population in Mille Lacs Lake that has undergone a decline over the past two decades that has coincided with significant aquatic system changes including increased water clarity and decreased walleye productivity; the introduction of zebra mussels, Eurasian watermilfoil and spiny water fleas; a changing zooplankton community that may be altering the aquatic food web; and declines in certain forage species, including tullibee. Heinrich began his natural resources career in New York as a fisheries technician on eastern Lake Erie and worked in that role from 1984 until 1990, when he accepted a position in Baudette for the Minnesota DNR. In 1991, he became the large lake specialist for Lake of the Woods and has been in that position since. More information about Mille Lacs Lake can be found on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/millelacslake. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I didn't get there either.  Planned on it, but found a good crappie bite in Wisconsin that I couldn't pass up.

      The opener was a zoo as usual.  There is 15" of ice in some spots, less as you get closer to the center.  It looked like there was quite a few folks out over the weekend when I drove past the south end. I fished mid afternoon on the opener and had one miss in 5-8' of water.  I had planned to go out last weekend as well but went west to fish with my son in law over by Melrose.  The reports I heard about opener was that it was slow all around but some fish were caught.

      If you're targeting pike you can do 2-3 holes overlapped with your 6".  You wouldn't have an issue with any beast then.

      Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!
