Kab in June

Recommended Posts

lancer

I have been fishing the Kab\Nam area for several years now and I have always enjoyed camping on the many remote parts of the lake. This year I am going to come up some time in late June and I am thinking of staying at a resort with my boat. Any suggestions on a nice resort on the west end of Kab would be appreciated. Walleyes off the dock at nite would be a bonus.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.....Lets fish..... smile.gif

Thanks Fishkab,

I am fired up for the open water season to start.

If anyone has any good resort info to share I would appreciate it. I am bringing up a 21' crestliner so dock space is also a concern.

Nothing better than fishing all day in the boat and then relaxing on the dock with a bobber and a beverage at nite.

I've stayed at Harmony, Moosehorn and Arrowhead. I liked Harmony and Moosehorn. Fishing of the dock is always fun and a good time to meet the other guests and compare notes on the days fishing. I've caught lots of walleyes dock fishing in the evening and using lighted bobbers after dark.

Northern Lights Resort & Outfitting is also on the west end of Kabetogama. They have a nice bay for protection from any wind and a floating dock system & also full electric hook ups & lights on the dock area. Very nice place to stay.

I was looking at Northern Lights. The web site indicates that it is a high end resort and higher prices (which is what we are looking for). Is it as nice as it looks? Any other Kab resorts that are high end?

Moosehorn has one of (if not the best) docks on the lake. Protected stalls, electric, and a nice sheltered bay.

Like all docks, fishing can be very good from it dependent on the time of year.

Northern Lights Resort also has a floating dock system. If you know the lake you know that the water level fluctuates pretty dramatically. You won't need a step ladder to get into your boat on these docks! They have a fully lit dock area with full electric hook ups right on the dock in a really protected bay. Really excellent accomodations too! laugh.gif

Yes the resort is as nice as it looks, we stayed there & the accomodations are really top notch. The website does not do it justice! grin.gif

Lancer--

I agree with fisherwoman--Northern Lights is an excellent resort--a bit on the high end, but you get what you pay for. The accomodations are second to none, and the staff is very helpful. I have tried other resorts in the area, but keep coming back "home" to Northern Lights. We have stayed at the resort for the last 12 years or so and recommend it highly!!!

      I agree with Rayguy. A lot of ecological changes happening everywhere and I think we’re seeing that on the Whitefish chain. Keep looking for new spots and new structure. Fish are still there. It’ll be interesting to see how Fall fishing goes. I am planning on fishing the next couple of days. I’ll let you know how I do.

      Ace is right, no need to run to far to find walleyes! They are all over the East end where you will be staying. The number one rule is "trust your depth finder"! I never fish a spot unless I see a few fish there! Lindy rigs, spinner rigs, slip bobber rigs, and jigs will all catch walleyes that time of the year. Cliff

      Thank you, my husband and I usually go to Kabetogama . but we are going to go later, had a chance to go here for the first time(Labor day weekend)and are excited to try it. Found a private cabin to rent very reasonable in that bay.

      I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.

      No brush or yard waste burning today through Sunday The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has issued an air quality alert for today through Sunday for northern Minnesota.    As a result, the Department of Natural Resources will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste for all areas north of Alexandria, including Mille Lacs and Pine counties. Burn restrictions may expand as smoke from the Canadian fires drifts south. For updates and the air quality forecast, check the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency website.

      If you are looking for Walleyes stay on the east end. There is no need to go running all over the lake to catch them. Daisy bay has Walleyes available as does Big bay which in my opinion has some of the best Walleye fishing on the lake.  Trolling cranks works this time of year, as well as Lindy rigging, or pulling spinners on a bottom bouncer. You can also find some decent evening slip bobber fishing close to where you are staying.  Good luck and have fun, you won't be disappointed.     "Ace" "It's just fishing man".

      Anyone that takes 16 years to boat a Muskie most likely doesn't target them all the time.  I average one Muskie every time I go out on Vermilion. It really isn't that hard if you do your homework and do the little things that it takes to be successful. Get out there and cast, cast, cast until your arms fall off.     "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on fishing the lake, we will be staying at a cabin by Daisy Bay / Arrow Head point. Not asking for your hot spots, just wondering if the area where the cabin is, if fishing for Walleye is close by. I here talk about east vs. west side. Not sure what that means? Any help would be great.
