Anyone have a feel for the ice-out date on Kab? Will it be considered early or late & willit have any effect on the Walleye fishin the first week after opener? May 19th to the 23rd.

Thanks for any opinions

Obpguy, It looks to me that the ice out is a course for a normal time frame. That means sometime late April to the first couple of days of May. The earliest that is has been out is April 15 and the latest on May 22. We should be right about in the middle of that. I'll post when it's gone. Fishkab

rich4eyes, Here's the update. The ice is off the shorelines now. Some of the bays have quite a bit of open water. It looks like we should be out before the 1st of May. It is changing fast now, and once it starts moving around it is gone fast. I have open water from my house over to the Visitor Center. Lots of ducks are back and it is starting to look good. Open water that is!!!!!! Fishkab

What is the update on the ice at Kab? Has it started to break away from the shores yet? I am planning on coming up this weekend and get the cabin ready for the opener. any info would be great. Thanks

Thanks for the update on the ice. Do you think we will be able to launch a boat this weekend and move it to the dock? How is the water level? We have launched at the visitor center and then have to go just through Peterson Bay. Thanks

Rich4walleyes, I don't think that you will be able to boat from the visitor center to Peterson bay this weekend. You will be able to back a boat in at the visitor center to run the motors and make sure they run. The ice is changing fast, but I don't think it will be open that much by the weekend. Another week and things should be pretty good for something like that. Fishkab

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
