BIG ISLAND DUDE

Whats working now on Kab

4 posts in this topic

I will be coming up to kab in the middle of the week this week and I am wondering what is working now for walleyes, smallies, pike. this will be my first time up to kab, I am going with my buddy who fishes there in the spring, so we will know the lake pretty well, but I dont think he has ever been there in the fall.

What presentations are working best? what depths do fish seam to be at? Any tips or recent reports would be greatly appreciated. We'll be coming up after this warm air has moved out, Thurs/fri.

Bid Island,

The fall on Kab is just about as close to perfection as one can get. I will also be up there Thursday threw Sunday and staying at Alan's place, Moosehorn, near Echo Island. For me, Jigs tipped with minnows are the ticket right now but how you work the jig is up to the school of fish your on and how deep your fishing. As you can tell I target Eye's.. If you find yourself in a group of non-slot fish try the Martin's for some Sauger so you can atleast have a meal!

I run a Blue and White Ranger Reatta with a Opti on the back, there will be three of us on this trip, so if you see us on the water come on over and say hi. Because the CP isnt coming this go around , we'll be over at Scott and Julies place for Dinner, The Rocky Ledge. Good food and always a very tall tail of HUGE Winter Crappies wink.gif.

Let me know of the rig you guys are in and I'll keep an eye out.

Fishing-Around,

We will actually be staying at my place on big island lake south of bigfork, its a kinda of a long drive(2 hours), but we want to try something different then the usual bass/pike lakes that we have around here. And since my buddy knows kab we figure we'll give it a shot. Well be checking the forcast for either thursday or friday, whichever day is supposed to be nicer is the day we will come. We will be in a newer black lund with a newer 50hp merc (tiller). thanks for the info and maybe well see ya.

      Much appreciated JBMasterAngler! I saw a couple of your comments on another DevilsTrack lake post, but that was from 2007 so this updated information is AWESOME !! LOL! Thank you! I am looking forward to giving it a go.    I have a bunch of chartreuse  and fire tiger rapalas too. Got a couple that dive to 16 feet, and couple to around 7. Hopefully i can locate a couple eater walleye. thanks again man.

      Beanies is a privately held beach and company. There is no way they would become a free public launch site--unless they sold to the DNR. I know nothing of that happening. However, if you're patient, the DNR is building one under the new HWY 36 bridge with 35 trailer parking spots to be completed in late fall 2019/early spring 2020. Here's the article: http://stillwatergazette.com/2017/03/20/dnr-plans-boat-launch-next-to-st-croix-bridge/. As for fishing, right now with the hot weather and the recent mayfly hatch, it's been a tough bite. Fish drop-offs or channels and try everything.

      Those islands are a good starting point. The mouth of the junco creek  (which is right at the campground) is a popular spot also. Gold is the go to color. Lake is full of cigars, but you should be able to find a few big enough to eat. Shorefishing at the access at night can be productive with leeches, but it's always those pesky cigars again. You might want to take a day and go over to nearby Two Island Lake. Has a much better population of eaters in my opinion.

      Wondering if there are any free campsites in the Ely area, preferably off of fernberg trail or hwy 1 within reasonable distance of town. I know there are a thousand sites on islands or lake shores that are "boat to", but I'm looking for drive to sites. Being on or near a lake would be nice, but I'm not too picky. Just looking to make a trip a little more affordable, as well as getting a chance to explore the area a little better

      Somebody needs to find out where it happened and start throwing some big baits in that area.

      No problems today with Chrome, so it must be fixed.

      Without seeing the bottom of the foot, I have the same thoughts.   Sure could be a propeller hit though.

      Was up for the weekend with the family and got out a little bit. Fished for about 2 hours in the morning and evening each day started out great on Friday nailing a 24" first fish but but over all fishing was slow for me. Saturday I zeroed but switched to spinner rigs w crawlers  Sunday and got into some nicer walleyes all 16 to 22" fish 1 mph perch colored spinners with the hammered looked to them with orange and green beads on a sand to rock transition. Sure was marking a ton of bait fish on the screen it looks like the lake is loaded right now.  How did everyone else do?

      We usually go with 3/8 or 1/2 ounce jigs on the US side due to depth and current.  I do not know if these sizes help avoid snags.
