Kabetogama/Nam. Fish Report

Recommended Posts

guts

The cold weather vanished and the fishing has improved. Several big pike speared this week, couple of 20's and a 22#. A report came accross that pike are full of whitefish and tullibees and live decoys not working as well as artifical decoys, so keep that in mind. More action now on Daily, Peterson, Mud and Nebraska Bays for spearing.

Anglers catching lots of walleyes on jig and chub 30-35', some crappie action and hearing of lots of nice perch. Remember slot limit on walleyes as lots being caught are above the 17" size. Snowmobile, atv's best mode of travel, the lake still has a minimum amout of snow for lubricating sled rails.

A good first location to try is the mouth of Ash River on Kab. on into Namakan. If that area goes flat, the mouth of Lost Lake and or that shoreline can turn on.

At any rate goodluck and Happy Holidays and good fishing, I'm going to be gone till after Christmas. guts <}}}}}><

Hey glad you guys read the notes, makes it worth while.
Kab has been good to fisherman, both anglers and spearers over the last week. Todays winter blast seems to effect this afternoons bite however. Crappie action was slow over the weekend with some nice fish caught. Walleyes and saugers were pretty active with nice slot fish coming out of Kab along with some above the slot.

Spear fisherman reported that there is alot more activity then in early season which is indeed unusual for this lake.

Lots of pike were coming out of 12-16' of water on tip ups.

The extreme fast moving cold front here now will probably have a short term negative effect on angling for a day or to.

Lots of ice everywhere, only real caution is pressure ridges. Park reports 12-22" of ice throughout Kab, with a good 10-18" on Namakan, and SandPoint..

Good luck to all and Happy New Year!!!!

      I haven't done it too much to this point, still trying to find my way around. All I have done so far is go from my place at Wabanica Bay to Pitt and then took the Pitt grade 20 miles in or so.  I've also covered all of the dirt roads around there.

      You bet!  And I know it! 😁

      I dislike posting a question here, but after fishing this lake since ice out at least once a week I'm struggling to find the Crappie. Have only caught one and it was spawned out. Checked all my favorite spring spots and found nothing. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Lots of gills and more largemouth than ever, but no crappies.

      Your lucky you got use of yours so quickly.  Mine literally didn't get used for about 12 years even though I brought it with every time I went after big fish.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .
    • Bigfatbert
      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .
