I'll be fishing Kab on the opener, have only missed one in about 50 yrs. The one missed I was in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Need an ice breaker here yet, but starting to get excited. Fishkab

I'll be here and I think this will be the best opener Kab has seen in years for nice big releaseable fish and slot fish for the skillet. They sure didn't bite well last fall, and they had no pressure over the winter.

More good news is water levels look like they should be normal or slightly over. Unless weather really changes and rainfall is excessive things should be great.

Good luck, guts

Cant make it up for opener (will be on the relative quiet of Basswood) but will be up for 5 days over memorial day camping on the lake.
Guts, i think your right. Judging by the number of 12.5" fish I caught last year this should be a good year for slots. And i think that you are going to see a pretty good number of fish now over the 23" mark. I caught more 21-22.5" fish last year on kab and Namakan than ever before.
I've got 20 days planned up there this summer camping, cant wait for it to be here smile.gif

Our group of 10 will be starting our season there at Pine Aire Resort. Looking forward to it like it was my 1st year, not my 17th. A good time WILL be had by all, regardless of the fishing success. Things are looking good for slots and big fish, but Mother Nature always gets her say into the mix. Wish I had a week to spend, but 4 days will have to do. Then I'll come home and rest!! Good luck to all, and if you get a chance swing to the lodge at Pine Aire and look me up.

Can't miss Kab for opener! Although I live up here, Kabetogama had some of the best walleye fishing in the State...during the first 5 or 6 weeks of the past few seasons...

This year should be no exception...see you guys on the water!

      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
