kab trip on labor day

Recommended Posts

smoker62

i have the first week of sept. booked at carlsons and was getting excited already. usually have 10-12 in the group that have been going to canada past years. this year we decided to keep our money in the states and try kab. only three of us on this trip though. one in the group fell off a ladder last week at his cabin in northern wi and busted all his ribs on his right side and shattered his pelvis.layed for 18 hours before his neighbor came to check on him. he is in north chicago now at the va hospital. be there for a month or so then in a wheel chair for a while . wont be bouncing in a boat at kab in sept for sure. problem is we cant find a third for the trip to share the cabin and boat rental and may have to rebook or cancel. i dont mind picking up half of his share but the third buddy cant afford anymore than his share. he was strapped with just his share of the trip. its just killing me to have to cancel or even rebook. i e-mailed jerilyn for our options and havent heard from her yet. should i pick up all his share just to go or rebook if i can in the spring? dont know if she will let me do that though. only can get a refund if they can book the dates , which is unlikely late in the year i would imagine. anyone want to join two guys to share a cabin and boat?this is really killing me. his third was about 500 with lodge and boat.plus gas to get there,food,bait,beer,you get the pic. what would you do? i cant really afford his whole share either.half yes but an extra 500 + confused.gif

we are going up sat through sat and as of right now there are two of us.have been emailing the resort with not much response as to our options. we tried to downgrade to a one bedroom which would save a couple hundred but none available. right now we still have a two bedroom and 18 foot boat reserved for two. hope to hear soon whether we can rebook or what. i know jerilyn is busy but we need to know our options if any to plan.let me know what you may be interested in if anything. thanks for the reply.

Definately call to see what options you have and report back, my bail finger says do it, but I may have a conflict.

got an email from tonya, looks like we are going as planned. she said we could rebook earlier or later for a 1 bedroom but that doesnt work for us . she will give us the cabin we have had reserved at the i bedroom price if there is only 2 of us coming. neither of us wanted to cancel altogether so we will just go with the two of us and if we get another it will ease the cost. we have a couple maybes right now for the third guy.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
