Looking for some resort Suggestions.....

Recommended Posts

NotoriousBLM

Greetings, all:

I am looking for suggestions for resorts on Kab for next May. I havn't fished Kabetogama, but have fished Rainy(stayed in a houseboat) and really enjoyed it. Anyway, I'm the "travel agent" for this adventure and we are looking for a resort. I'm trying to figure out which resort would best fit our wants. I have a 17.5" boat with a 90 on her, so we can travel aways if needed, but basically just need to know who has clean cabins relatively close to good fishing during mid-May. Friendly owners are always a plus, as nothing erks me more than giving hard earned $$ to an a-hole.

Thanks,

NotBLM

I agree with all the suggestions, however most early season fishing is better on the West end of Kabetogama, there are over 20 resorts on the West end of Kab. Later season, the East end is the better fishing where Ash River resorts are the most handy.

Early season they catch fish off the docks or within a short distance of the resort making the West end very convienent.

There is a Kabetogama resort assocation website that has info, as is there an Ash River ebsite as well. Good luck, guts

I always stay at Park Point Resort in May. The fishing is great, we catch hundreds of walleye each spring, but the majority are to big to fit in the slot. It is amazing how this lake has rebounded with the slot. The owners are awesome, and you can catch fish from the shore and the docks while you are in on lunch break, or enjoying beers after dark. Hell, I would even give you some hot spots out on the water in the general area.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      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.
