Heading to Kab on 19th

Recommended Posts

Duke96

Will be on Kab from the 19th - 26th with my Dad, Uncle and Brother, staying at Sandy Point Lodge. We've fished Crane/Sand Point for the last six years and had a great time every year, but we decided it was time for a change in scenery. Any tips or a couple good starting points would be very much appreciated. Can't wait to get up there, this next week of work is going to last forever. tongue.gif

I have fishing Kab and Namakan for 30yrs. One year we decided to change and try Crane and Sandpoint. I was a little disappointed. To much aircraft noise and too many cabins. I can't help you much on places to fish on that end of Kab I just fish the east end and Namakan. I am going up the 19th also. Good luck, I am sure you will be a convert.

There are a lot of places to fish on that end of the lake. The Grassies, Cemetery Island, and Tom Cod bay are all at your fingertips. The owner of Sandy point and his family always know what the bite is like on any given day and can always steer you in the right direction.

Also, Sandy Point has the best bacon cheeseburgers I've ever tasted. Great place to eat and drink.

I'll be up there that week as well. If you see a black & tan crestiliner with a grey 200HP yamaha and a grey kicker, give a wave. Can always swap fish stories about the "big one."

Good luck and welcome to the lake.

Dusty: I am also going up on the 19th, except, my trip is a little shorter than yours. Are you saying at Sunset?

DLR, No, we are staying at Frontier this trip. I prefer Sunset but it comes down to a matter of $. I have three Grandkids along and a dog. I save a couple hundred staying at frontier cause they don't charge for extra people over two and the dog.

Dusty: We usually eat our breakfast at the Frontier each morning, or at least, most mornings. Hope to run into you there. I run a 1992 1775 Pro-V with the 196th LIB patch pasted on each of the wave wackers.

DlR, ok I will look for your boat. Where are you planning on starting out. I think I will try kabby first, maybe Nebraska bay or Knox Is. depending on the weather. I run a Crestliner Sportfish green/tan with a 115 Yamaha. Maybe see you on the water. Good luck

Dan: Sounds good. I'll sure look for you. Depending on what the wind direction is, Lost Bay, kohler Bay, even Sullivan Bay. I guess we will have to wait and see what we will face as far as conditions are concerned. Good Luck yourself!!!!

Mizzouraider,

Thanks for the report. Not what I wanted to hear however. Thought sure the Walleyes would pick up with the warmer weather. Were they still deep?

from what we heard, the slots were holding at 30-35 ft. and coming in shallower in the evening. Don't be bummed, you might hit it just right. p.s. we did'nt see any bait fish shallow. that will be the key to shallow bite. good luck.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft

      Landowners can generate revenue by allowing public hunting on their private land in 46 Minnesota counties through the Department of Natural Resources Walk-In Access Program. Sign-ups are Monday, Jan. 22, to Friday, April 27.  “This program is a win-win for landowners and hunters,” said Scott Roemhildt, DNR Walk-In Access coordinator. “And what’s more, by signing up for three years, landowners can qualify for habitat enhancement on their Walk-In Access acres.” For Walk-In Access, eligible parcels must be at least 40 acres and covered by high quality natural vegetation. Landowners are paid by the acre to allow hunting access from Sept. 1 to May 31. Bonuses are paid on parcels that enroll in a three-year contract, are more than 140 acres and are located near a state wildlife management area or federal waterfowl production area. “This may be an opportune time for landowners to sign up for this program because there is some uncertainty about how it will be funded in the 2018 Farm Bill,” Roemhildt said. In a change this year, landowners who enroll in a three-year contract also may qualify for up to $20,000 in habitat enhancements on their land for prescribed burning, removing invasive trees and brush, or planting native species. Walk-In Access parcels are for public hunting only and no motorized vehicles are allowed on conservation land. Bright yellow-green signs identify area boundaries and parking is along roads or in designated parking areas. Recreational use laws provide extra liability protection for acres enrolled in Walk-In Access. Walk-In Access began in 2011 and has grown to more than 26,700 acres in 2017. The program is currently funded through 2018 with a three-year grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under number 69-3A75-16-509. Other funding comes through a surcharge on nonresident hunting licenses, a one-time appropriation from the Minnesota Legislature in 2012 and donations from hunters. Landowners should contact their local soil and water conservation district office for enrollment information. Details can be found at mndnr.gov/walkin. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Yea, the guys having issues with the k-drill/fuel combo are not claring out their ice shavings enough. I have had 0 issues with binding or overheating.  Have been drilling through ice that comes up to the foam the last three days.

      Possibly coming up in the next upcoming weekends. Is there any good areas this year that’s producing a decent bit I’ve heard it’s been pretty slow so far? I know last year there was a good crappie bite in halverston bay but ended up sticking close to the resort and got a few gills. Looking for eyes and crappies if no real good bite thinking of heading to the southwest and trying the gull area. Thanks

      I took those pictures probably seven or eight years ago. If I remember correctly I was heading up north solo, and decided like many others that I'd never fully read the spectacle and would capture it for posterity. I've never met or seen the guy, but I'm sure it would be an interesting time if you drank a few cold ones together. Speaking of Cotton, does anyone have a report on the El Toro lounge? I've always meant to stop in there but have yet to do so.

      Losing Sue is a great loss to the lake community and all of those that had a chance to interact with her. My young daughter has had to deal with a few close losses in our family this year/winter already, so she will be really sad to find out next spring that her favorite "ice cream lady' is no longer with us as well. Sue and Ron were always part of the experience of coming up north. Like many others I'm sure, my wife got corner by Sue last summer about how we needed to buy Moosebirds! I'll miss seeing Sue's smile each time we walk in the door to pick up some random forgotten item, for ice cream, or to find something "Moosebirds" to take home and support a good friend.

      Not sure how everyone else is drilling their holes with the k drill, but I have the 8" on a clam drill plate with the M18 fuel drill and don't have any problems with the drill overheating or the bit not cutting.  In 20" of ice, I clear the shavings 2 or 3 times during the cutting process and the drill cuts like a hot knife through butter.  Instructions on the k drill float are pretty clear that you should clear the shavings to prevent the drill from binding when cutting in thick ice.  Love my k drill!
