Newcomer to Kab - Help

Hi yall. Some friends and I will be heading to Kab June 9-13. We have been going to Ontario for fishing the past 10 years, however do to some issues, one of our buddies can not enter Canada for a few years. So we are staying state side this year. We are staying at Northern Lights.

So that being said I am looking for a little heads up on some locations for walleyes.No Im not looking for gps coordinates of your favorite hole, just some general starting points. Also any presentations or certain colors work best this time of year?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Jig and a minnow(rainbow chubs and shiners) work best for us. Lindy rigs work well too. the deeper you are finding fish the heavier the jig needs to be. We've fished as deep as 40 feet, you'll want a 1/2ounce jig for that. Hard to say without giving up some of our honey holes but I would just try to play the wind and set up drifts along breaks and zig zag the dropoff till you find what depth they are at. 18-25fow is where we usually start. Sometimes the smaller fish you can keep are not with the larger fish. You should be able to talk to the resort when you get up there, they should be able to point you in the right direction as far as spots to fish.

Check in at the Corner store and Bait 'n' Bite. I am sure they will give you some good hints at where they are biting.

It's a good lake that requires a little work.

So far so good on the info. With lindy setup, is just a plain hook the norm?

Most days for me it's a 2-3 foot leader with a red hook and red bead. Though as usual with fishing I have had black, chartreuse, and orange hooks be the more productive color on a given day. When it's cloudy/darker I usually switch over to a glow bead.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
