My wife and I are able to do a last minute vacation next week. We want to go to Kab for boating and fishing. We have never been there except on snowmobiles. Since it is late in the season it looks like most places have a cabin available.

We are looking at three resorts, Driftwood, Park Point and Voyageurs Park Lodge. We are not the kind of people that need super-nice accommodations, we do like a resort that is clean, well kept and with friendly operators. Does anybody have an opinion on these places or ideas of another?

Thanks in advance!

Voyageur Park Lodge nice place and operators. The cabins are the most private on the lake. 10 cabins on a 16 acre peninsula ,but availability can be limited. 800-331-5694. Enjoy your trip to Kab. Beutiful scenery!!

First of all, you're going to enjoy your stay on Kabetogama, wherever you stay, because hopefully, you'll be on the lake, not in a cabin. But there lies a potential problem. I've stayed on the West end of Kab every year since the mid '80's. And it seemed like every year there were at least a couple days out of the week, and sometimes more, where high winds made it almost impossible to get from the South side to the North unless you had a 19 foot fiberglass boat or a huge set of balls. West to East or East to West winds always made the trip a wet one. Once you get into the islands or bays it would be fine but............I loved going to Kab every year, it's a great lake, but last year I thought I'd try out Crane. There's not as many resort choices and only a couple "family" style resorts. Finding the fish was and still is a challenge, but I found that I wasn't really at the mercy of the wind as much as it was on Kab. Crane and Sand Point seemed to have more bays to hide in when the wind was howlin'. Or maybe it's simply because they are smaller lakes. I may just be blowing smoke since I've never really spent any time fishing the East side of Kab, but I know the West end can be a challenge with high winds. And I don't like sitting in a cabin when I'm on vacation.

Thanks very much for the replies, VERY helpful! I will add Northern Lights to my list. I know that this is not the best time of year for fishing but due to some family health issues it is the time that finally came available. We will fish hard and see what happens...

We have been going to Harmony Beach since 1980 and have found the resort to be very nicely run by the several different owners over the 28 years. Curret owners are very accomdating. Cabins are kept up and they have a safe boat harbor.

Just got back from Voyageur Park Lodge. Very nice place with extremely friendly staff. View from our cabin was second to none with the full moon over the lake. Sure wish I stayed the week.

We were also up there this last week and had to leave early for medical reasons, but in the time that we were there, these people bend over backwards to help you. They even launched our boat for us using their 6-wheeler. I would also recommend this place.

Bobreetz, the problems you raised about fishing on the big waters are shared by others. We have had a number of guests (both daytrippers and longer term guests)over the last few years that came to Elephant to get away from the high seas on the larger lakes. Kab/Nam has some of the most beutiful scenery in MN, but our boating is certainly more relaxed.

If you havn't done you trip yet, add Sandy point to your list. We used to go there in the winter and it seems like a nice place.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
