Early Summer on Kab

5 posts in this topic

I have a few questions? I go up to Kab every year, the first week of June and camp out with the guys. (Except last year due to a broken leg.) So as we were talk about our trip, in the shanty. The new regulations came up. What is the new regs. We always due really good on the eyes most of which are over the slot. We only keep enough for one shrore lunch during the week. Which ends up being about 4 eyes. But I always hear about the crappies as well. Never even tried for them. Just looking for a couple spots, for that time of year. Thanks

The slot is now the same as Rainy: 17"-28" must be thrown back and the possession limit is 4.

Actually, it is now for all the lakes on that chain.

The DNR site has the new 2007 fishing regulations up and running if you have any other reg. ?'s about Kab.

Someone else will have to give you some spots to try. I've only been on Crane and Rainy.

Bronco is correct but you can have 6 fish. Not more than 4 of them can be walleye. So 4 walleye, 2 sauger is fine. No slot limit on saugers. That's the way I understand it anyhow.

Thanks for the update on the regs. Now all I need is a crappie spot.

It's hit and miss, but I would try Sullivan bay along the shores in about 10 to 12 feet of water. Throw a bobber tipped with a jig and minnow (use a small hook); if that doesn't work, try a crawler. Keep moving until you find one- then get ready for some action. My group has fished Kab for the last 9 years in May, and we've caught some huge crappie and perch when the Eye's slowed down. Hope this helps.

      We were up north of DL 15 miles this weekend and a ton of water on the ice but it's from melting snow.  All the holes we drilled the ice was still 1-2" above water level.  It was pretty hard getting around especially at accesses due to the snow melting.  Was very soft but I was able to get around with my Rav 4, barely made it up the accesses huge hill because traction control turned off but made it though!  We had 18-19" of ice 12-14" of it was clear ice.

      1/23/17    Night crappie bite is on. Hit Waconia Saturday evening. Got a good sunfish bite half hour before sunset until dark. Crappies bit well from six to eight pm. Larger Tungsten Tubby in glow tipped with a wax worm and a small VMC spoon in glow pink fire UV tipped with a waxie were the best baits. Sunfish were near the bottom over a deep basin area adjacent to a shallower weedy area, and crappies moved through spread out over the bottom eight feet or so of the water column. Sunfish still biting during the day on Prior, but they are moving around a lot so you need to hole hop for a consistent bite. Numbers and size. Tiny Tungsten Tubby or Gill Pill with one or two red Eurolarvae were working well. An inline reel is a big help as it reduces line twist and keeps you jig from spinning and spooking finicky sunfish. Still sixteen to eighteen inches of ice on Waconia, and fifteen to sixteen on Prior. Water and slush on top, but more seasonal temps this week should firm things up. Good luck, be safe, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Sure wish that it would freeze up before the snow in the forecast comes

      I did get out on the ice, but unfortunately it was the ice on my driveway.  Spent a lot of time spreading salt and sand!  No time for fishing this weekend.

      Speaking of towers, does anyone know what the tower is for on 24 north of the VDL?
