Fishing Kabetogama in mid October.

Recommended Posts

Ode

I would like some info on fishing during mid October and also would like to know if any resorts are open during that time frame. We would mainly fish walleyes and northerns. Is anything still open in the Ash River area? Any info would help.

October can be an excellent fishing month for walleye, I would think Northern as well.
Yes, there should be several resorts open on Ash River, to get in touch with them call the Ash River Commercial Club. 218-374-4440, they can give you all the info you need on any of the resorts, many have reduced fall rates. Fishing at that time will depend alot on weather I'll post somthing later as the time passes.

I can highly recommend Burchell's Moosehorn Resort. Alan and Miriam stay open year round. Alan is a second generation resort owner and really knows the area. We've stayed there every year for the past 12. We'll be there the last 2 weeks in Sept this year. They are located just off Echo Island near the Wooden Frog Campground.

Thanks guys for your response. I have stayed on the end down by Woodenfrog, it is called Park Point resort, but they are closed around the time that we are going. It will be the week of MEA. I guess I would like to know if staying down by Woodenfrog that time of the year would be better fishing than down by the Ash river area?
Thanks again, Ode

guts,
Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. We are looking for a warm bed and a roof over our heads, as far as a resort is concerned. A place close by for a "cold one" would not hurt. We are looking forward to the trip. Are you from the area?
Thanks Ode

Experiences in the past mid-Oct, would dictate to me that the better fishing would be mid-Kab. to the mouth of Ash River. That makes the trail a little closer. Getting away from the West end of Kab there are several resorts favoring the East end of Kab. that would be open depending on what you are looking for in the line of amenities.
An excellent fishing only type resort with an in house guide is Deerhorn Resort, Driftwood has a lodge and an in house guide, Four Winds has a lodge as does Harmony Beach. Pine Aire has a lodge with a bar and pizzas. I'm not certain if they are all open, I know a few of them cater to hunters which they stay open for. You can get more info off their websites all of them link to www.kabetogama.com. Post back, and good luck! <*}}}}><

guts,
It sounds like you are well informed on Kab. I really love the area, my wife and I like going to the area for vacation during the summer. The people are very friendly and it is a nice break from the everyday fast paced life we lead.
Thanks again, Ode

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      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.
    • Borch
      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.   
    • osok
      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)
