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.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
