Beaches?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi Fellas!
I'm heading up to Kabe from the 9-16 of Aug, and does anyone know of any beaches on Kabe that I could take a little guy to go swimming. I was thinking that it would be fun to boat to a private one and have a shore lunch. What do you think?

Thanks!

Boy, beaches are kind of hardc to come by on this lake if I remember correctly there is one on the far southwest corner of the main basin, not sure if it is private beach for a resort or not but i knkow it is there. As far as a secluded one, I think there is a small, very small one on the east side of Potato island. THere is a little campsite or picnic table there too. I hope I am right about it being Potato. I dont have a map in front of me right know but I know it is on a smaller island on the east end of the main basin. If you ahve a good map, it should show the picnic site.

There are at least 4 or 5 very nice natural beaches on Kab, as well as the public beach at woodenfrog campgrounds. Wait and see if Fishkab posts, he will know the island names for the beach locations. If he does not post in the next day or so I will find out and post same later. guts <{{{{{><

Go Fish, There is day use site on the northeast side of Moxie Island. It is a great spot. As a day use site, no one can camp there. It has a fire ring, tables, and is set up for just what you want to do. It has a great beach and goes out a long ways as shallow water. It shows up on the park maps. Easy to find and not that far from any of the resorts. Have fun!!!!!! Fishkab

Go-Fish, I'm not much into beaches but if you ever get in the area of Namakan Island make a run down to Junction Bay. On the west side of the bay a small waterfall enters the lake. Its a very cool spot to anchor in the little cove between the 2 chutes and jump in the lake for a swim.

Gentlemen!

Thanks so much for your replies! Your info will make our trip that much more enjoyable! If your out and about on Kabe during the 9-16 of Aug, I'll be fishing in a red 18' crestliner with a merc on the back. Please feel free to give me a few pointers! We will be staying at Driftwood. Thanks Again!

Don, the owner of Driftwood should be helpful to you for beach locations as well, he is also aguide and he does know the lake well, Hopefully fishing will pick up its pace by the time of your arrival. Good luck, guts <{{{{{><

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      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
