One Week at Kab, what a Joy. My two boys and brother and dad,and a good freind. We caught over 150 eyes, mainly in 7-10 ft.rainbows everyday but 2, leeches were the ticket Wed.pm & Thurs. It Was so windy!! we mainly stayed on the northeast end.Tom Cod, Bittersweet,Grasses,Cemetery. Pin Cherry in 25ft. We had fish for dinner 3 nights and brought home a meal.Wed. night a cold front came thru and figured thursday was going to be slow, was I wrong Thursday was our best day with 80 eyes caught 11 keepers. I was the best year in alot of years,I think the slot is helping. God Bless

We just got home Tuesday from Kab. The guys with me get bored fishing walleyes so we casted for Northerns and smallmouths and did pretty well. How do you fish for the walleyes? The little walleye fishing we did was jigging minnows. I think we would have done ok if we would have stayed at it. What depths did you fish? Maybe next time We can get started catching some walleyes and get my fishing partners excited about them.

Got back yesterday from fishing Kab over Memorial weekend. Got a couple limits of 14" to 16 1/2" eaters with quite a few bigger ones mixed in. There seems to be a nice variety of year classes out there right now. Our biggest was 24" but we had a few 17"ers, 19"ers & 21"ers also. We fished the West end around the Three Sisters primarily with the bigger ones in the 9'-12' depths & the keepers a little bit deeper. The wind changed daily but the fish didn't seem to have moved too far from where they were the day before. 1/8oz. fireball jig or lindy setup worked the best.

Definately one of the better weekends fishing on Kab in quite a few years.

Here's a picture of my 24"er

MN Wannabe, we mainly used lindy rigs with rainbow mninnows in 7 to 8 fow. About every 20 min or so walleye would come thur. We did move around about ever 3 hrs unless we were nailing them.

Dale, sounds like you had a great time up there. I'm taking the family up the last week of june and are staying at Northern Lights Resort on the west side,never been on the lake but I'm trying to get as much info from this site as possible. Say I worked with a Dale Bakken about 15 years ago on the Wash. Co. jail. I was an apprentice electrician at the time and worked with the block layers and a Dale Bakken was a foreman, just wondering if you might be him.

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
