I'll be fishing Kab on the opener, have only missed one in about 50 yrs. The one missed I was in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Need an ice breaker here yet, but starting to get excited. Fishkab

I'll be here and I think this will be the best opener Kab has seen in years for nice big releaseable fish and slot fish for the skillet. They sure didn't bite well last fall, and they had no pressure over the winter.

More good news is water levels look like they should be normal or slightly over. Unless weather really changes and rainfall is excessive things should be great.

Good luck, guts

Cant make it up for opener (will be on the relative quiet of Basswood) but will be up for 5 days over memorial day camping on the lake.
Guts, i think your right. Judging by the number of 12.5" fish I caught last year this should be a good year for slots. And i think that you are going to see a pretty good number of fish now over the 23" mark. I caught more 21-22.5" fish last year on kab and Namakan than ever before.
I've got 20 days planned up there this summer camping, cant wait for it to be here smile.gif

Our group of 10 will be starting our season there at Pine Aire Resort. Looking forward to it like it was my 1st year, not my 17th. A good time WILL be had by all, regardless of the fishing success. Things are looking good for slots and big fish, but Mother Nature always gets her say into the mix. Wish I had a week to spend, but 4 days will have to do. Then I'll come home and rest!! Good luck to all, and if you get a chance swing to the lodge at Pine Aire and look me up.

Can't miss Kab for opener! Although I live up here, Kabetogama had some of the best walleye fishing in the State...during the first 5 or 6 weeks of the past few seasons...

This year should be no exception...see you guys on the water!

      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!!

      nills 8 inch is 8 I think.  would be great for pike. less torque required.

      wow! talk about service. called marine general in duluth yesterday and its on my step this morning!  drill trigger is at chest level so should be dandy.

      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 reels often 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
