Walley Info

Kab is a large body of water, add to that Namakan, Crane, Sand Point, and The Ash River and you've got way too much water to play 'hit and miss'.

I've never stayed at the Voyager but, in general, the people of that neck of the woods are some of the best. They will be more than happy to share all the fishing knowledge they have for the time of year you will be their guest. (Remember, much of their clientele are repeat customers, if you go home happy you just might book next years trip with them.)

Having said that, if your are a beginner walleye fisherman, hire a guide for the first day. If you're experienced, you ahould be able to figure it out with the help of the staff at Voyagers. I usually fish Nam but I've had some luck near Gold Portage on the east end of Kab.

In my experience, get out before dawn, fish hard for 3 hours, go in for breakfast and take a nap. Then try to be on the water at dusk for some good action. I've always been back at camp by dark but many people have told me that the night bite is some of the best fishing to be had.

Like most lakes, the best spots will have several (or many) boats backtrolling near each other shortly after sunrise. Nobody enjoys fishing in a crowd so if a crowd develops, it usually means a good school of active fish.

One more thing, buy a map and compass and know how to use them. The boat trip up to The Kettle Falls Hotel is great but I gaurantee you will get lost without the map and compass.

Best of Luck, Polar Bear

Hello to everyone & good luck at opener.
I will be at Kab for Memorial Day week staying at Voyager Lodge. This is my first trip to Kab and I would sure appreciate any info on presentation, lure / bait preferences, fishing depth and locations, especially hot spots near the lodge (I will have my better half with me) anything at all that will make the trip a success. I would appreciate anything you experienced Lake Kab fishermen would be willing to share.
I picked the lodge based on the internet site, they seem like nice folks, I hope I made a good selection. Thanks for your help.

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
