I fished on Kab. Sat, Sun, and Mon. Our group did fairly well the first two days. We had a big fish fry and froze a few to take home. Then on Monday things really took off in the windy/cloudy conditions. We caught fish ALL DAY LONG. We caught enough slot fish to fill everyone out and literally release dozens of fish between 18" and 24" trying to find the eaters.Then we came a day early and scored points with our wives. As for the specifics, we caught fish from 6 ft. to 42 ft., but the most productive was fishing the windswept shorelines on the southeast side of Wolf Island in 6 to 10 feet with Lindy rigs and minnows. You will have to fight the crowd there though. If you keep moving around the islands and points near the mainland you'll be able to find scattered pods of fish all to yourself in 10 to 20 ft. That was our most enjoyable fishing of the weekend. If you like to jig I would recommend checking around the Chase/Knox/Headlight Islands in 35 to 42 ft. range. We caught some real dandies in that area. Let me know how you do and remember-

Anyone out there fish Kab opening weekend? Just looking for some information on what depth the fish were in and what presentations worked best. I hope to be on the lake Saturday morning.

Fished Kab and Namakan on opener. Caught most are walleyes in about 30 - 35 ft of water on jigs and minnows. Most were in the slot with a few above and some below. We caught a lot of fish.

Thanks for the details SATCHMO. Sounds like you had an excellent opener! As usual, the fish in Kab are scattered through various depths with the nicer fish deeper. Will let you know how we did.

In a typical fall (after turnover) the best areas are usually on the east end of Kab. Try the mouth of the Ash River, the entrance to Lost Lake, and the entrance to Blind Ash Bay. Use a jig and LARGE minnows. The area can get crowded at times, but the fishing can be phenominal. You might want to poke around some of the other points and Islands in that area too, as we have found groups of fish all to ourselves in the past. GOOD LUCK!

Jim W.,
If it is a warm August and Sept, don't forget to bring the crawlers along. I have had excellent results with crawlers on 6 to 8 foot snells after labor day before the lake turns over. The fish tend to move toward the Ash River area this time of year or at least the most active fish.

Thanks guys, what about typical depths if any? That can save a newcomer to Kabby many hours!!!!!! Again thanks a ton, If I can ever repay just ask!!!

(PS I know it's never on schedule, but when does Kab "usually" turn?)

      We also ran into Fisky on the lake as well as at the weigh-in. He is a fun guy to share a boat seat with.....and catches lots of fish big and small. We had a 30 1/4 fairly early but struggled to find 18 - 19 inchers. Or 16 or 17's. We had 1 18 and finally kept two 14 1/2's as the day wound down.  Not getting nice unders was really unexpected. But color us very happy with the results. Good luck

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.
