Kab's HOT!

Recommended Posts

Fished Kab today for the first time all year...nailed 2 limits of 'eyes on the south shore in 2 different spots after heavy NW winds for the past 2 days. Threw back 17 under the slot, 12 over (one at 25") + 18" smallie and 32" northern plus smaller pike and bass. 2' snells w/ minnows and/or leeches. Some crawler bite too w/ silver spinner.

Couldn't keep fish off the hook, basically. Twas fun!

Guts' Report

Not a pike fisherman by nature but the wind blown bays (Nebraska, Mud, Daley, Blind Ash) have to be good!)

After a great long summer, Labor Day Weekend arrived with cold,

windy weather until Sunday when a light wind, sunny, beautiful day

pleased anglers and boaters alike.

Anglers found the fish waiting for them, nice encouraging

reports including Walleye, Northerns, Perch and Sauger,

keeping anglers busy and smiling.

The best bite for Walleyes was again in the 30’ range.

minnows were again the answer. Folks were using

jigs and slip sinker rigs with and without spinners.

Walleyes again near or on the reefs near deep water,

you may find a little action in the 25’ range, but deeper

waters are more consistent.

Pike roaming in walleye waters as well as weed edges.

Perch and sauger in and around walleye depths.

This time of year light color jigs do well with a slow presentation.

East end of Kabetogama still the best section of Kab

and of course Namakan has turned on for those wanting

to travel.

Bear hunters seem to be finding and weighing in many big bears.

To date a 323 and a 314 pound bears lead the way after a few days.

Baits getting hit hard at night, hopefully the cooler weather and

evenings will get them on baits earlier.

Lots of good reports on grouse, the season premier will soon be here.

Welcome to Kabetogama your sportsmen paradise for all your

Outdoor activites.

Have not personally been back on the water but here's the report

Kabetogama/Ash River Fishing Report 9/13/10

Fall is in the air folks and the leaves are changing color, both these ingredients are a plus for anglers.

Walleyes are showing up with a better appetite than we’ve seen for awhile. Live bait and crankbaits are getting the job done. Live bait rigs or jigs working well at 28-30’, shoreline structure or reefs providing the action.

Crankbaits at 15’ down as deep as 20’ working well at various depths for suspended walleyes; Kabetogama and Namakan both kicking out walleyes as well as pike on cranks.

Crappies being caught a little more frequently as they move into shallower water, where to go is the secret not given up by anglers.

Northern pike have taken a liking to small suckers and artificials. Anglers will probably do better trolling this time of year rather than casting stick baits and spinners.

Smallmouth bass season has come to an end. As of September 13th, you can no longer keep bass, they must be released.

Bear Season still going strong with an occasional kill reported and grouse season opens this coming weekend.

Come north, fall colors, good fishing, good hunting and very few bugs.

See you soon,

Phil and Ellen Hart

      How’s the the smallie bite? I’ll be up on Friday 😎 ~Tripp

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.
    • Hookmaster
      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
