Recommended Posts

will be on kab june 28-july 5. will be primarily northern fishing. does anybody speed troll big safety pin spinner baits with any success?i have tried it on sandpoint and namakan on the canadian side and done really well.usually rip them right along in the top foot or so of water right along the weed bed edge. was wondering if some one had some ideas as to bays that have good weed beds that are close to deep water. i will be at pineaire but am willing to run as far east as hammer bay. every body i talk to at resorts up there says that most people fish walleye on kab and very few fish northern.i have fished kab a few times over the past 15 years so i know it reasonably well, but have always fished walleye. thanks in advance for any info

lucky enough

Anywhere I have ever gone in Canada and Northern Minnesota, I have always done the same thing for Northern Pike. Contstantly moving using my trolling motor, I cast towards the shoreline and retrieve over and over using Mepps Scycolps. Any color works, but the more the sun is out, the more those lures reflect and the more fish we catch. We fish every island, shoreline, whatever the whole time we are there. We stay at Deer Horn resort and we go the very first week in June. There are 4 of us in the boat and we limit out on Northerns every day. Never a problem. That early in the year there is not much in the way of green weeds. Everything is pretty much still brown. When we do find green weeds, we catch more Northerns in those areas. We eventually limit out on Walleye, but the problem is more about the size than anything. We caught some great 24-26" Walleye last year, but they all had to go back. Should be some major league tropheys coming in a few more years.

I have noticed the Northerns are a smaller in Kab. Biggest one we ever caught was 37" and we generally catch 26-30". They are good eaters, but I would like to see bigger.

I don't know if you have a radio in your boat, but another thing is that we always listen to music. If we are in an area where there are other people fishing, we will turn it down as not everyone likes it. Bob Marley and Jimmy Buffett have never hurt our fishing. And we are in the boat from sunup to sundown, so we like to be entertained.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
