Weather looks to be a big factor this weekend.
Eyes have been on a feeding frenzy, find the bait fish and you find lots of catchable eyes. One problem, lots of fish over slot, but lots of fun.
Lead head jigs with minnow still the best bet, tri-color, black or gold and silver all seem to work.

Recent reports are they are catching slot walleyes and smaller fish in deeper water, depths from 22' to 35'. Evenings they are still catching bigger fish of the docks and shallow windswepth shores. good luck, guts
<{{{{{{>< fishkab you been out there?

You may keep fish from 13" to 17" and one fish over 23". All others must be released immediatly. Also you cannot have fillets, fish must be "in the whole" with heads attached. Each year we have seen folks get ticketed on memorial day weekend as they come off the water when checked by the DNR. Not a fun way to end your weekend.
In years past almost every boat/cooler was checked at the Ash River landing after loading up by the DNR on monday.

G I was on the water last night. The water temp has warmed to 55- 56 degress. That's about 10 degrees since opener. Caught lots of fish over the slot in the shallow water. Pitching jigs in 6-7 feet of water. Mostly spawned out females. Earlier in the week, fished jigs and minnows in deep water 40 ft. during the day and moved up into the 20's towards evening and caught lots of small fish and kept 16 in the slot. Right now it seems that deep small and slots and shallow fun fish that are too big. good luck Fishkab

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think.

      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal.
