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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
