How long to Kab.


Recommended Posts

Hey guy's, I have a question! How long ( time wise) is it going to take to get from Mpls.(Blaine) to Kab. I have asked 4 friends and got 4 very different answers. Thanks.

I would say it's a 4 1/2 hour trip if you go straight through. (Depending, of course, how the traffic is coming out of the Cities.) I used to make it from Augsburg to I. Falls in 4 hours, but that was when I was a little bit younger and a little bit crazier. grin.gif

4.5 hours from Minneapolis. Will get faster when they complete the four lane from Virginia to cook.

89 Bronco - I'm a 94 Bronco. Also went to Auggie tech.

Hey Kab Dreamin--- Good to see you are still dreamin about Kab. Won't be long now for spring. I had guests from Forest Lake and the trip was about 31/2hours from there. For me it's about one minute from the front door to the boat. Later Fishkab

Back in college I made it from Burnsville to Vermilion in 2 1/2 hours, so you could make it in 3 hours.....in theory that is.

It can be done in about 3:15 - 3:30 from St.Paul and that is using some good gas. My brother comes from Andover and it takes him on average 3:45-4:00 to the Ash river turn off. THank God they finally changed 53 to 60 mph. But watch out the pigs are out most of the time. 10 mph saves an hour!!!

i cant help but reply even if it does stir the pot a bit. my hope is to enlighten those ignorant enough to use the word "pigs" to describe law enforcement. Law enforcement does not deserve this derogatory nickname. These are the same men and women who save lives, up hold the laws and give unselfishly of themselves on a day to day basis (often risking thier own lives) rarely getting thanks from the society they serve and protect. They do thier best to catch the scum of the earth that prey upon innocent citizens. They save lives daily. Sure we have all probably gotten a citation and even perhaps a short and inconvenient incarceration. If you dont break the law you wont recieve a penalty. If you break the law and get caught ............suck it up and pay the fine. If you dont like the law..............lobby to change it. "pigs" ??

I for one refer to them as law enfircement.

Hop Sing, I don't think that you are stirring the pot. I don't like the term either. I would just hope that the people on the FM site are people who enjoy the outdoors, take pride in taking care of the environment and enjoy these areas for years to come. It only takes a few of the people with no respect and bad attitudes to ruin things for others. This doesn't need to go any further, but thought I would let you know that term doesn't belong here. Later and Good Fishing Fishkab

...and there are a load of us active and retired LEO's rubbing shoulders with you good folks up on Kabetogama. That "pig" might just be one of us, sharing a brew and a fishing story with you. We're normal people and most of us give a [darn] about the same things everyone else does, including our resources and a safe and enjoyable time on the water and in the woods. It's always nice to hear a good word for the LE community. Thanks!

And I am also one of those law enforcement people who just got home from a very long day in court. It is good to come home, read the posts from this site, and prep for my trip in May to Kabetogama. Thanks to all who had a positive word to say about the law. Most of us dont take offense to the name calling...just part of the job. When we are fishing, we are all equals...just plain old fishermen/fisherwomen.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?
    • Dash 1
      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.  
    • Kettle
      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.
    • CigarGuy
      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
