We will be up to fish Kabetogama in a couple of weeks. Can anyone suggest a good campground on the lake to stay at. We will be tenting. Any help would be appreciated.

You have two type camping facilities. The water based sites in the park(Voyageurs National Park) which are spread out from the West end of Kab all the way in to Namakan and beyond, or private or state owned campgrounds that you csan drive to.

The state owned sites are managed by the DNR and they do not have electric or water per site available. I think the website is www.minnesotadnr.com, one is Woodenfrog on Kab and the other is Ash River on the trail.

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

Don't even think Ash River Campground. It should be a rest area only. BAD!!!!Unless you look into resort tent camping, either camp on an island SO COOL!!!! or plan on Woodenfrog Campground. No showers, but hey you're camping and there is lots of water around, but the sites are quite nice, great views, boat launch, can leave at nite on beach, NO GOOD WOOD, bring from home for any good type fire, great Rangers for answering ?'s, . We were there in late May, so write me if you have any nore ????

Make sure you stop at Gateway Store. They really do have everything you might need and they will give you best advice. If fishing, a quide even for 1/2 day sure pays off the first time. Wade Watson sure was great and we went from very few fish to super catches after his expert advice. And we consider ourselves fair to middling other places.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
