Farley, fishing has been pretty good between rains this past weekend. Of the baits you mention, I would stick with minnows, some success with crawlers in shallower towards evening otherwise jig/minnow or rig with minnow is the most consistent. Pike are lovin sucker minnows and spoons/spinners in or near the weedbeds, smallies hitting on small floating jointed rapalas next to the rock piles also using crayfish rattlin raps.

Expect to move around alot to catch a limit of slot size wallies, they are not tightly schooled up yet. Good luck <}}}}}><

Guts, do you live in the Kab. area? Or I guess I mean are you a resort owner? It sounds like youre always on top of all the action up there. If so which resort, we'll stop in and have a few beers this weekend. My family has had a cabin up there for 50 years I think.
Thanks for the info

Farley, Just got back and had a wonderful time at driftwood lodge. Don and Brenda were incredibly nice people. Like guts said, 75% of fish came on jig/minnow combo. Slot fish came from the edges and big fish came on top. Is that the norm for this lake? Joe

mjgrose,
This year it has been pretty consistent that the bigger or over slot size eyes have come out of the shallower water or say on the top of the feed bed shelves, slot size, saugers and perch hang on the edges of the reefs along with many under slot fish. For awhile lots of nice walleyes came out of the shallow weeds as they were in eatin perch minnows.

When you were here last week did you run into any crappies, they started kickin in last week? Hope those chipmunks didn't drive you nuts. <}}}}}><

Joe, Thanks for the post back, glad you had good fishing and good time. I guess the crappies just began hitting a little on Fri. Hope Don doesn't sell soon, he is a good resort operator. <}}}}}><

guts, no crappies but don said they should start anytime. The chipmonks were very friendly and kept the kids entertained all week. They should have a good winter! It was my first time on Kab, needless to say, be booked a week next year. Beautiful lake, good fishing and very good people in that area. Joe

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      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.
