Smallies

Recommended Posts

BleacherBum3

My friends and I will be up at Kab from the 19th-26th. Just wondering what we should expect from the smallies? Wondering what tackle to bring and what areas to circle on the map? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also we're looking to camp out somewhere one night instead of staying in the cabin....any suggestions? Thanks

Last year we were up about the same time. We did really well in Lost Bay around the small island just east of Lost Bay campsite. We initially caught a couple on spinnerbaits we were pitching for northerns and then switched to rapalas, grubs, cicadas, etc. and really hammered them. They were primarily out on the reef that runs NW to SE off of the east end of the island. A little ways west from Lost Bay, we caught a bunch off of the rock marker out in front of the Eagleview campsite and the rock markers on the west end of Cuculus Island. Find a rock pile and you'll find smallies. I would try the rock marker in front (south) of Knox Island and also the rock marker on the south shore between Nebraska Bay and Little Richie Island.

bb3...stayed at ash river up till june 12. we caught #,s of smallies in sullivan bay on our old missouri crappies favorite....small cork with #4 wally hook and nightcrawler or leech about 2-3 ft. deep. our biggest fish came from Nam. hoist and moose bays were also good. don't forget to throw some topwater at em, if they don't take it, I'll GARUNTEE they will take the cork! p.s. if it is sunny, afternoon seemed the best bite as the water warmed for us. good luck

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      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!
