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.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
