SATCHMO was right on!

Fished Kab both Saturday and Sunday, excellent results in 25 to 30 foot depths with jig and minnow. Some people fishing shallow picking up a few scattered fish. Surprisingly the lake was not busy with the good bite happening. I imagine the Canadian opener drew a few people away. Lots of Wisconsin boats on the water as usual. No problem finding enough slot fish. Good call Satchmo! Looking forward to my next trip.

Glad to hear about your successful weekend!! The opener was busier than usual this year, but there are plenty of spots to get away from the crowds. They seem to gather on the perrennial hot spots and leave the rest to the more adventurous. I'm bringing the whole family up to Kab. in July, til then I'll just be bouncing around. Good Luck the rest of the season. Talk to you soon.

Hey guys,
I know it's early, but I'm coming up there in the Fall(Second week in Sept). Any info about typical depths and strategies for walldogs would be greatly appreciated! Never fished her, but have heard many wonderful stories about the Beautiful Kabetogama!!

I am headed up to Kab this weekend. Haven't been able to make it the last couple of years. Any suggestions on where to start for walleyes?

Holaway, it's going to be cool this week in the north country so I would guess the fish won't move much from where they are now. Start fishing in 25 to 30 feet of water off an island point (Wolf, Knox, Chase, Martin) and you should find fish. Don't be afraid to go deeper. You should be able to see fish on your electronics. Check out the wind direction for the few days prior to your arrival and start on that side of the island. Check out the posts in the Opener Results. I won't be back at Kab for three weeks so keep us posted on your results! (big minnows are still the way to go)

Thanks for the update Holaway. Tough conditions with the week of lousy weather before the weekend. The person you saw fishing crawlers on a slip sinker rig was probably my brother-in-law. He is a die hard crawler fanatic. Although I know he was using minnows the first couple of weekends. Glad to hear you caught enough fish to keep it interesting. See you on the lake!

I am going to be up at Kabby camping in August with my 2 sons (age 7&6).I was wondering ia anyone could give me some info. about fishing for walleye and smallies.I've been up there for the past 3 years as we love the area but my fishing success hasn't been very good and my boys are wondering why their dad doesn't ever catch fish.Any help would be appreciated.

This past weekend was slow, caught enough to keep interesting. In the rain Friday NE side of Wolf was on in 15 to 20 feet. Caught them on both spinners and jig and minnow. As the weather got nicer the fishing slowed and the fish went deeper 30 to 35 feet.
Sat and Sun caught walleyes deep 35 to 45 on an island north of Knox near shore. Mostly using bottom bouncer and spinners. Mid morning they are still up at 20 to 25 feet. Did see one guy hitting a lot with a slip sinker and crawler. Also had some luck with just a plain sinker, hook, a couple of yellow beads, and minnow combo.
Water level is still rising lots of drift wood floating around.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
