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.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
