Do minnows, crawlers or leeches work best in late May? Or do you even use live bait this time of year? Do you tip your jigs with live bait or fish them NAKED with plastics such as powerbaits, grubs or twistertails?


Thanks

Late May is usually an excellent time to fish Kab. Baitwise it is very transitional. My advice for live bait use is to use what you are most proficient with. Minnow use tapers down about then and lindy rigs with leeches/crawlers is very effective or jig and leech. This time of year if the water is warm, and you use a lindy rig, be sure you have a long snell.

Plastics on Kab are used more for smallmouth bass than eyes, however twister tails and power leeches have been used successfully by some of my friends. Rapalas, reef runners, wally divers and etc are excellent lures when presented of course at the right depth.

Personally at the end of May I would use a lindy rig with crawler or leech which ever works best during the day. I like using shad raps the evening hours before sunset.

Good luck, guts <}}}}><

I really like #8 or #9, gold, silver and perch. The size that gets you down to 12-15' should be your best choice.

Good luck, guts <{{{{{><

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
