kab/nam vs vermilion

3 posts in this topic

our group has gone to Lake Vermilion the last 2 years and are looking at alternatives for this summer..we mainly fish smallies, but walleye and northerns are certainly on the agenda. Is Kab/Nam a better fishing choice in early July than Vermilion?

Having fished both, but neither of them in July, I can tell you that Vermilion probably has better potential for a real trophy smallie. Both lakes are great walleye producers. IMO, Vermilion has lost its "remoteness". If that is important to you, like it is to me, then you will enjoy Kab/Nam.

Having fished Vermillion most all my life and caught many, many fish. I love Namakan and this year I went up there 6 trips from early summer to late fall and you can catch smallies almost any time and the walleyes that time of year were much larger than you will catch on Vermillion. I would say Kab or Namakan. Both those lakes are remote though. So all you see is good clean air and fresh water.

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
