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.

If I get there early enough (6am) on sat morning should I be able to find a parking spot at wooden frog without a problem???

Ive never fished kab on opener.

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.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
