we have a place on it. Pretty much the last lake to freeze due to the depth every year. Usually freezes up a few days after Walker Bay on Leech. I never plan on venturing far until the week before Christmas in a normal year and then on foot or on snowmobile along shore to go to buddies spear house for Whitefish.

Great lake to not "start" ice fishing. Depth and springs equals sketchy ice.

Thanks for info. I've just moved to mn.. figuring out new lakes can be a challenge. Is it as productive hard water fishing as summer?

Kabekona should be ice fished with great caution, there is a reason you rarely see vehicles on this lake, as other poster stated the last lake to freeze, often some open water on the east end at christmas. massive schools of tullibies swarming just under the ice at various areas reduce the ice to next to nothing thru december and into january, be careful

Thanks for the information.. better to get info here than finding out the hard way. Was a bit more of a risk taker 15 years ago..now just want to play it safe and enjoy the fishing when the time is right.

I second leechlakes post there's some serious springs in Kabekona. I was one of the first to venture out there last year and had 9" of ice, when travel via wheeler we found a spring with little ice just skimming over it. I almost put my dad and wheeler in the drink thank goodness I was walking 50 yards in front of him when I found it. Give the bay some time to lock up tight before you venture out.

Good luck

Kabekona lake. I truely appreciate all the info. Seemed like a good walleye lake this summer. Caught lots of nice 20 to 28 inch fish.

Planning to ice fish this lake for the first time this week. With the polar vortex we just had i would assume it would have safe ice? After reading the previous threads it sounds like it can be a good lake with extra caution. I am planning on snowmobile/foot travel. Any pointers to where a guy can catch some whitefish/tullibees and potentially walleye on this lake? Thanks in advance!

      My in-laws used to live just down from morning star. They weren't on the lake but they supposedly had access to the lake near morning star, some lake easement for residents living on the opposite side of the lake.

      One last morning on the water this past Saturday before we took the docks and lifts out in the afternoon. Trolled the Morning Star bay for crappies. It was slow with just 2 or 3 crappies, although they were big ones. We could have kept them but chose to release. Also got a couple of northerns. I got skunked but my girlfriend got a good size northern. Biggest fish that any of the four of us caught on Saturday.

      Well, actually going on family life expectancy.  Not many man on my dad's side made it past their late 60's.  On the other hand my wife's side most lived to late 80's into 90's.  So again, I really don't want to leave me wife in an area she is unfamiliar with or know anyone.  If she should pass away before me for some unknown reason.  Yes, they will find me dead in a cabin in the woods.

      Well I had to go north this weekend with the predicted weather and boy did it not disappoint!   What a great weekend of perfect weather!!  Hit up Gull Lake Saturday afternoon equipped with a dozen lite pike minnows and a plan to move until we graphed fish and move if they don't bite.  First stop we searched and found one spot with bait balls and a few fish but nothing was biting so we went searching.  Searched alot of ground over the next hour and half and didn't mark a fish, so we went back to the spot with fish marked and as we pulled up there was one boat right on the spot...catching a fish!!  We trolled around with this boat exchanging information and catching fish for the next 2 hours.  We ended up catching 9 throwing back a 25" and keeping 8 from 13" up to 23" that was gut hooked.  Fished in 20-32' of water using lindy rigs with lite pike minnows.  Some fish we would give a lot of line to and they would have the bait swallowed and other times we would give line and find the hook just barely in the lip!  Missed a lot of hook sets but could not beat what was possibly the last fishing trip of the year for me...GOOD LUCK

      I have been gearing up getting ready to walk again after 10 weeks!  I have been lucky enough to get out fishing a few times and can't wait to get out in the deer stand...bad thing is I have a basketball tournament for my 4th grade son on opening weekend of deer season and I am the coach!  Oh well I have used enough patience getting this far, what are another few days!  Otherwise not much for me to do...

      i think Leech is using his wife as a an excuse not to actually live out in the sticks in fear of meeting up with bigfoot!!!!!!!!!!🤣🤣🤭
