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.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
