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.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
