Night fishing on Kab

Recommended Posts

toolgarage

Heading up to Kab next weekend for the first time. Can anyone tell me if it's worth staying on the lake after dark for night fishing?

I know on LOW it's not worth a hill of beans after dark, but I'd like to know about Kab.

Thanks

Timmer

TG,
I would say from my experience that fishing thru dusk for a half to hour past dark has been good. Try pulling some #7 raps along weed edges for eyes and pike. But, i have never spent much time into the night. I have thrown a slipbobber off the campsite on occasion, but find the nights better suited to a nice fire, cold beverage, decent cigar, and absorbing the sights and sounds of the lake from camp. This time of year you can get some unbelievable northern lights in the sky too.
About the only time that i have done some night fishing is around the bug hatch, when folks will go out and longline troll floating raps and the like over deep water.

Xplorer - When you're trolling raps along the weeds are you adding weight or bottom bouncing at all?

Doc,
Most times i try this along the weeds I am trolling with out weights. Some areas in Lost Bay and Moose bays can be OK. I only do this in the evenings.
The night trolling I've only tried a few times, over the deepwater areas SE of Namakan Island in July. Running out @150' of line with #11 raps.

We have had a lot of sucess night fishing on Kab over the years. just mark them before dark, light a lantern or 2 to be sure you get back to camp. Then using a lindy with a long snell and a glow floater, tip them with a couple different presentations to see what they like that night and throw em on the bottom. We have the best luck not far out from the rock we stay on

Utilityk,

Thanks for the tip. Would you mind sharing the location of the rock your referring to?

I've never been up on Kab before, and we're heading up for 4 days of fishing on Saturday. Fishing day and night - want to make the best of our quality time on the lake.

Thanks,

Tool.

Tool garage,
No problem, shoot me an email: utilityk@aol.com
Indicate something refering to Kab as I don't open mail from unknowns to dangerous these days.

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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!
