Family Friendly Resort

Going to Kab in July with younger kids. 3,5 and 7. Any recommendations on resorts that we should look into? Appreciate any response.

shouldbe,

Pine Aire Resort has a nice beach and playground as does Tomahawk Resort. Moosehorn has lots of activities for kids and good dock fishing. Most resorts do have some kids play areas and water toys and things for them to do. The south shore resorts have good dock fishing also plus any resort can hook you up with a park program which are great for the kids. Check out the Kab web site and look into the resorts for yourself tho. http://www.kabetogama.com/resorts.htm

Good Luck - enjoy your time on Kab!

In my opinion it would be hard to beat Idlewild Resort for family friendly and just plain great resort owners.

Let It Snow,

You forgot to mention the added benefit that I stay at Pine Aire.

Will do, Dreamin'. Do the same for us to Katie, Chris and Molly!

When is your first trip? Looks like we could have a relatively early ice-out. Ash River went out 4/7 - Kab is usually 10 days to 2 weeks behind that. Have had some warm weather and pretty good winds. Ice is gone by the ranger station and the ducks, seagulls and herons are in the sky along w/ some eagles. Kab is just waiting to be fished!

We are coming up the first week of August. My cousins that used to come up with us in the 70's are coming up also and my brother is driving in from California and is bringing his boat, too. I can't imagine hauling a boat over two mountain ranges when you can rent one but I'm not him. I'm also trying to sneak in a September trip, but that will be up to "she who must be obeyed". I gotta figure a way to get up there for opening sometime. It would be quite a change to fish on opening instead of clean fish on opening. smirk.gif

Hello Kab Dreamin, Good to see you on the site. Stop by and say hello on one of your trips.. I know stories about you, I don't know if Pine Aire is lucky or not!!! Enough of that. While you are Dreamin, I will probably take a boat ride tomorrow. Take Care Fishkab

fishkab,

You wouldn't be a famous Kabetogama guide who I recently saw on a FM hot bite video and ex-resort owner, would you? If so, I know who you are and will definitely stop in and say hello in August.

Any stories you have about me are really old now and don't count anymore, so don't tell any of them to my kids. smirk.gif

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
