Opening day crowds

4 posts in this topic

I have fished Kab and Nam for the past two years but have never fished up there on opener. One of the reasons I love those lakes is that it is not so over run with boats. I used to fish Vermilion on opener but in the past few years it has turned into "Lake Minnetonka North" so many people it drives me nuts! Can I expect the opener on Kab to be like any other weekend or is it packed as well?

I've spent the last two openers up there. There will be crowds around some of the spots like the Ash River enterance, Peterson Bay, Woodenfrog, etc... Last year we found a spot off the main trail that we sat and caught walleyes right under the boat in 8 FOW, probably had two boats in two days come within 300 yds of us.

The line to launch usually stretches for miles especially at 6 am. grin.gif Seriously though with the low water Woodenfrog is going to be more popular than normal as it is a deep launch. Another thing to consider is that there are going to be people coming up that normally would be "up the trail" except due to the fire are making last minute changes of plans.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
