Anyone have a feel for the ice-out date on Kab? Will it be considered early or late & willit have any effect on the Walleye fishin the first week after opener? May 19th to the 23rd.

Thanks for any opinions

Obpguy, It looks to me that the ice out is a course for a normal time frame. That means sometime late April to the first couple of days of May. The earliest that is has been out is April 15 and the latest on May 22. We should be right about in the middle of that. I'll post when it's gone. Fishkab

rich4eyes, Here's the update. The ice is off the shorelines now. Some of the bays have quite a bit of open water. It looks like we should be out before the 1st of May. It is changing fast now, and once it starts moving around it is gone fast. I have open water from my house over to the Visitor Center. Lots of ducks are back and it is starting to look good. Open water that is!!!!!! Fishkab

What is the update on the ice at Kab? Has it started to break away from the shores yet? I am planning on coming up this weekend and get the cabin ready for the opener. any info would be great. Thanks

Thanks for the update on the ice. Do you think we will be able to launch a boat this weekend and move it to the dock? How is the water level? We have launched at the visitor center and then have to go just through Peterson Bay. Thanks

Rich4walleyes, I don't think that you will be able to boat from the visitor center to Peterson bay this weekend. You will be able to back a boat in at the visitor center to run the motors and make sure they run. The ice is changing fast, but I don't think it will be open that much by the weekend. Another week and things should be pretty good for something like that. Fishkab

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?!
