Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.
You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend. Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru. I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years. Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.

Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to almost Bust!
There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge!
We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish!
Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation.
Thanks guys! We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high. We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river. Is that a good stretch for smallies?
