Give it 2 weeks.

You'll want almost all of the snow melted before they turn on.

Little story I thought I would share about Tullibees. Up until a few years back, we used to net Tullibees on the north end during the 2 weeks of deer season. On an average year, we would net anywhere from 300-500 tullibees sometimes up near 8-900! My Dad and his buddies really enjoyed it but after a couple of his buddies passed away, they stopped doing it because lack of help. Now, we spend the majority of the time in the woods chasing deer. Someday I would like to get back into it though as they are so tasty in the smoker!!

JuddH, some of my dads friends also did that back in the 80's on the North end of the lake. Who are you??? The Trails End area???

Out in those 25-4- foot hole the tullies come through around 12-17 fow.

I use a small brown hair jig or maribou and when I see them on the flasher I lift it up to and then past them.

The really go after it like a pike almost.

Hey crappie guy. Thanks for the info on another subject. My sons in re-hab as we speak. Going after the tullies on Tues the coming week Maybe we will see out there chasing the slabs. Are they talking about hole by Horeshore bay access. How small of jig are talking fly fishing size or larger. Good Luck see ya on the ice, look for the red F-150 with loadmaster on the rearwindow>>>>later the load

I knew where Cliff lived so I know where you are on trails end. We are west of you, if you go down to where the black top ends, you take a left on the dirt road and next left on Hanks road and we are in that cluster of houses.

The fish have been biting for some time now, 3 weeks or so. Pink, silver, or yellow seem to be my colors of choice. The fish seem to be about everywhere, catch many of them while fishing crappies in the deeper water. Though no matter the depth I find most fish caught 10-12 feet down. When I take the kids, I "zone in" on the tullies in 20-24 ft of water and have been catching between 60-100 in a outing. anyone else have any tips?

Those are some nice tullies. I was able to pick up 6 on my outing with a few more lost at the hole. Is anyone hitting the Bill Horn bay area or is all the activaty up on the north east and west ends?

I fished both the northeast and west pockets with about the same luck this past weekend. Mostly in 25-30'water. Looking to get my dad to come out with me this coming weekend. The three-wheeler is down and with the northest landing getting broke up like it was I think truck traffic is out of the question. Any suggestions for the walking man?

you don't have to walk too far from the NW side, It seems like the fish are about everywhere. At times for something new I'll set up in a area away from anyone, give it 10-15 minutes if you don't get one move a little. It's amazing how many people driving by will see what you got and pull right next to you like you are on "the spot" once they show up I'll usually move on to another spot, because they are all good. I'ts just funny to watch people hone right in on you like you're in the magic hole...

      Nope...   320er...   Thanks for the info..

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.
