Night fishing on Kab

Recommended Posts

toolgarage

Heading up to Kab next weekend for the first time. Can anyone tell me if it's worth staying on the lake after dark for night fishing?

I know on LOW it's not worth a hill of beans after dark, but I'd like to know about Kab.

Thanks

Timmer

TG,
I would say from my experience that fishing thru dusk for a half to hour past dark has been good. Try pulling some #7 raps along weed edges for eyes and pike. But, i have never spent much time into the night. I have thrown a slipbobber off the campsite on occasion, but find the nights better suited to a nice fire, cold beverage, decent cigar, and absorbing the sights and sounds of the lake from camp. This time of year you can get some unbelievable northern lights in the sky too.
About the only time that i have done some night fishing is around the bug hatch, when folks will go out and longline troll floating raps and the like over deep water.

Xplorer - When you're trolling raps along the weeds are you adding weight or bottom bouncing at all?

Doc,
Most times i try this along the weeds I am trolling with out weights. Some areas in Lost Bay and Moose bays can be OK. I only do this in the evenings.
The night trolling I've only tried a few times, over the deepwater areas SE of Namakan Island in July. Running out @150' of line with #11 raps.

We have had a lot of sucess night fishing on Kab over the years. just mark them before dark, light a lantern or 2 to be sure you get back to camp. Then using a lindy with a long snell and a glow floater, tip them with a couple different presentations to see what they like that night and throw em on the bottom. We have the best luck not far out from the rock we stay on

Utilityk,

Thanks for the tip. Would you mind sharing the location of the rock your referring to?

I've never been up on Kab before, and we're heading up for 4 days of fishing on Saturday. Fishing day and night - want to make the best of our quality time on the lake.

Thanks,

Tool.

Tool garage,
No problem, shoot me an email: utilityk@aol.com
Indicate something refering to Kab as I don't open mail from unknowns to dangerous these days.

      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.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      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
