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.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
