This weekend

Good morning,

A group of us is heading up to Kab this weekend. It will be the first time that any of us have ever fished the lake. We are staying on the west end but have a boat that can make long runs to the east end if need be. Based on the information that has come in so far, it looks like the water temps are keeping the fish out deeper. What are some decent deeper water areas to target on the west end? If we did go shallow, would slip bobbers be a good option? Or are jig/minnow or live bait rigs the best tactics? Thanks in advance for any info. I will make sure to post a detailed report of our results when I return next week.

The West end is normally the better fishery early in the spring. The water seems to be warming up nicely right now, with 60-70 degree weather expected this week. As the water warms up we all expect the large majority of eyes to move in shallow. There are a few nice deep holes on the mid West end that may hold mid-depth eyes. The No. point of Bittersweet, the East side of the far East island of the three sister group.

Pass thru bittersweet and on the left by Slatinski Bay there is a reef that drops into the mid 50's.

Check the forum before you leave or stop at Gateway Store, they usually have the latest scoop.
Good luck, guts

We also have a group going up this weekend. I haven't fished this lake for about 10 years and am looking forward to hitting it again. I have a 16-5 Lund Predator (blue) with Wave-Wackers sporting a 50 Yamaha tiller. If you see us fishing stop by and introduce yourself and we can swap a few lies.

Did you mean bittersweet? It sounds more like pincherry or donut island in the location you were describing near slatinky's bay.

Fishin Engr,

I will definitely keep an eye out for you. We will be in a Lund 1850 Tiller with a 90 Honda on the back. It will be a full boat as five of us will be fishing out of it.

Any new reports from this week? The weather looked a little warmer. Have the water temps warmed at all?

      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.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      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
