Kab/Nam vs. Rainy

Recommended Posts

Guest

I'm going up to the area May 30 and was wondering which lake is recommended for fishing and camping. I've been to Kab and had a great time, just didn't fish much. It's me and two other rookies looking to catch a few fish and a small buzz.

I replied earlier, but I guess reply did not go through. I prefer Kab for fishing and camping. Rainy may have a better supply of big fish, but Kab has great campsites as does Namakan. The Kab/Nam basin has better wind protection from the strong winds and currents of Rainy, when it comes to camping. There are I believe 30 plus improved campsites on the Kab/Nam basin.

Fishing early season is usually as good or somtimes better on Kab then Rainy, and Rainy improves as a rule mid-season.

Read the posts between now and vacation time for both Kab and Rainy, you can always portage over to Rainy from Namakan.
Good luck, guts <{{{{{{{><

Guts, it's been years since I've been to Woodenfrog, where are the great camping spots? Does Marty Narbo still run a resort? I know his place had some camping spots.

Ron,
First, Marty does still own property next to Tomahawk, they rent some, but are not real active in the renting end of things. Health for Narbos is a factor. I know Tomahawk rents camp spots, and I imagine Marty still does if you can reach him.
Woodenfrog State campground is still very viable and a nice place to camp. The sites there are all unimproved, no electric, no water. Naturally the park has many water based campsites. If you look on the internet at www.kabetogama.com they list all the various resorts that have campsites, improved and unimproved.

I would think fishing here is now much better than you probably remember, due in part to the slot limit., 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.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      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

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
