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.

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

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
