Kabetogma in June

Recommended Posts

Guest

I was wondering if you cold help me with something. We are planning to stay in Ash River during the second week in June. During this time we plan to fish on Lake Kabetogama for Pike. In general is this a good time to fish for pike, and are there any places you would recommend trying around the Ash River area? We would probably be willing to go out aways from Ash if there are any exceptionally good spots out farther. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I too am going to be at the kab-ash river area in june the week of 6-21-6-28 and am staying at the frontier resort. I am taking a father son triop up there with my 2 sons 13 and 16 the last time i was up there i was 16 or 17 years old myself. i can't wait to go but it has been 2o some odd years since i have been up there so i can't give you any real help except to tell you to read all of the past posts as far back as you can under the kab forum site here and you will get a lot of pointers on where to go and what to use, well good luck to you and be sure to post how you did when you get back.

we used to stay on the ash river several years ago at ash trail lodge..usually went up memorial week or first/second week of june...sullivan bays channel will hold early eye's if temps aren't extreme, fish the edges around the markers half way up sullivan...another producer was the bay on the left side of sullivan just prior to entering the narrows...also the opposite side of the channel along the rock wall...if youcross the neck of kabe from the narrows there is a spot marked as lost lake, darker water warms early...wolfe island also a known producer, usually the south east end ..look for the breaks...good luck

Finding Pike won't be a problem, the channels, shorelines, and nearly all of Sullivan bay will produce Northerns.

On the other hand if you are trying for big Pike, go back towards main Kab, you can troll or cast lures in Blind Ash bay, Nebraska bay and a big holder of all species including big pike is Lost Bay. Generally Kab will produce the bigger N.Pike early in the year because of water temps.

For lures, spoons are always a good bet, large Mepps, big raps, Ikes, cisco kids, poes and etc. A absolute guarantee for Pike is good ole fashion bobber fishing with a sucker minnow,(light northen bait). Its a sure fire way for some action, as well as you can catch other speices. Good luck,

What do you mean by light Northern bait?

Light northern minnows might be called small suckers or small decoy minnows, the minnow is about 5-6 inches in length. Fish with a hefty slip bobber and leader using either a kahle hook or a standard hook size 1 or bigger.

Game fish, especially pike like the big minnows. The bobber will generally bob once then go out of sight after about 60 seconds let it rip, he should be hooked..

Good luck, I know the Gateway Stoe on hwy 53 at the Kab entrance carries light northen minnows. guts <}}}}><

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
