Kab Report 7/9 to 7/16

Recommended Posts

Just returned from another "Family Week" at Pine Aire on central Kab. I must say it was some of the best weather and fishing we've had on our annual July trips. My 10 year old took me to school again. I guess that's why I bring him along. It is definately a morning/evening thing going right now, with a few scattered daytime bites. We caught over 40 slot fish, a dozen over the slot and about 20 undersized fish throughout the week. With young boys, I decided to "Bobber-UP" and work the main lake reefs for the majority of our fishing. Working the edges where they make contact with both deep water and rock piles seemed to be the ticket. There was another group at the resort that did very well in the School Teacher area running bottom bouncers with spinners and crawlers. The mud areas seem to be slowing down along with the bug hatch.

One of the biggest highlights for me this week was taking out Niles' neice Robin for an evening of fishing when my crew went on their kayak adventure with Watsons. Prior to that day, she had only caught 2 walleyes in her entire life. That changed very quickly on Wednesday evening. We anchored up at 7:30 and by 9:30 we had caught 18 fish with 11 in the slot. You should have seen that girl shine. I just sat back and kept slapping on the leeches. grin.gif

Take care all, and good luck. Greg

We're due in to Pine Aire on the 30th. It's good to hear the walleyes are active. Hopefully, that will continue for a few more weeks because I'm looking forward to a little shore lunch action. Did you fish in Lost Bay and if so, any action down there?

K.D.--Had a little smallmouth action in Lost Bay, but did not fish it for 'eyes. A few of the guys at the resort reported some catches from down there though. I may be slipping back up to Pine Aire on the 30th as well. Depends on the wifes vacation pool after the shutdown. If we get up there I'll fill you in on all the gory details. Greg grin.gif

We'll be in cabin 6 and have a blue Alumacraft Trophy 190. If you make it up, come find me and we can compare fish stories.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
