Howz the bite? Leaving Kab-Nam area tonight!

We have spent the past 4 days chasing eyes on Kab & Nam. Bite is unbelieveable! So slow you could nap between fish! We want to come to the East side. Understand the markers are already out. No specifics needed, just an update on the pace of fish (eyes). Your help is much appreciated.

Bite is REALLY fast from 6:00pm till after dark. I usually dont get out and fishing till after 4pm and have no problem getting a limit.

You'll run into a ton of places to buy bait.

You will get this too late for practical use this trip, but consider stopping at Elephant Lake on your way south if you leave Kab early again. Much smaller lake, you can fish the whole thing in a day. We were there the first two weeks of September and a party came in from Kab a few days to get away from foul weather and was pleased with the eyes they caught (they also picked up some nice crappie).

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
