Started at the point on the WI side just south of 94 where there is a big "private beach" sign and a little tiki bar looking thing. Caught 1 decent walleye on cranks here. Then fished the humps out in front of beach on the WI side between 94 and catfish bar. Pulled in 1 keeper eye and a few drum using bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses in 20-25' water.

Made it down past the kini to the flats in front of the state park launch around 11ish. Pulled in 4 saugers, a bunch of spotted catfish(? is that what they are called??), and a few more drum on the same rig in about 22-24' water. Also managed to get 4 decent bluegills that we kept.

Anyone else have any luck?

I hit the river early as usual and I was off by 9, started infront of the buffs park picked up two eaters before sun up and added one more around 7ish, caught a mix bag also heavy on the cat side, worked my way back down towards steamboat caught one really nice smallie but couldn't seem to find any eyes after 8 but there's always tomorrow, I'm planning on being on the water early again in the morning

Fog so thick you can cut it with a knife, thank God for gps else it would've been tough to go any place. It was so so did manage to get one dandy eye which I released (24 1/2) and a few smallies no sheeps today, left the river by 9:30 red lund

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
