Kab report 5/24-5/27

Recommended Posts

Farley

Water levels are about 3 feet down on Kab\Nam, 6 foot down on Rainy. We caught probably 30 walleyes, biggest being 24", most came off windblown points, using minnows on lindy rigs, red hook and green bead, 10-20 fow. Sunday we caught fish all afternoon, but other days we seemed to catch the end of a morning bite around noon-1:00 (we rarely got out before noon). Lots of wind, so if you can stay on the points, jigging should work, otherwise what we did was set up upwind, throw out the driftsock and use the trolling motor to keep us at a certian depth, drifting at .5 mph. Also caught a few saugers up shallow closer to night. Green seemed to be the triggering color for us. Friday we had to come off the lake because it was so hot, Saturday night it snowed.

Kab report and Water levels, Glad you caught fish and had a good time. However, the lake level comment isn't quite right. Rainy is down only about 2 feet and here at Kab, we are about 3 feet from the top of the rule curve. We aren't at the top very often. Thus we are also about 2 feet from what is the "normal level" Check out lakes.bc.com and you can see the up to date data. Fishkab

So what you're sayin is not everything I hear at Red Pine is true? grin.gif Heard that info from a few locals.

Farley,, that is probably true, and it depends on how much of the fire water was consumed... Fishkab

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
