hows it looking for the last week in may? ive been up there where the water has been so low we couldnt get to the docks,and so high the docks were under.

I am assuming its going to be a low water year, but how low??

seaner,

I just got home from Kab. I was up helping my mother in law with some chores. I put my boat in the water...it was tight but it is in and tied to the inside of the outer dock. Many docks are high and dry but these are the private ones that only stick out from shore 20-30 ft. I think at this time last year it was about a foot deeper than it is now. What we need is some rain.

Most resorts on Kab have crib style docks that are still 5-6ft out of the water. A few resorts have large floating dock systems that go up and down with the water level. Even when the water level is low you can still dock a large quantity of boats. Have a great opener guys!!

I was asking them if we were gonna need a ladder to get into our boats from the dock. smile.gif Hopefully you get some rain up there soon... We will be up once again this year from May 18 - 22nd... We are looking forward to it as usual... Will you be around during those dates??? I would like to introduce myself if you are...

Sam will be up on wednesday. Joan is her same old self (full of energy with too much to do and not enough time to do it) wink.gif. All the cabins are ready for opener. Water is up over the end of the ramp now coming up an inch or so a day. I put my TYEE in on sat, I must admit it was a little interesting but it was not too bad. There have been a lot of changes/improvements to the place. Rick O. and Joan's brother took down some questionable trees and built a driveway down to cabin 1 (that is the big cabin behind the office). 1, 2, and 4 all have new decks as well as a new (used) cabin at the top of the hill by the garage. I will be up most weekends so I will catch you either coming or going.

I just backed my trailer off the ramp and let it sink in the muck and then pushed the boat off and Joan sat on the outside dock and caught it. Pulling it out would be a little harder with the level of the water right now but given some more time it will be coming up at about an inch per day. Just plan on taking turns cranking the winch when loading would be the worst case scenario. Outside dock in front of 3 is completely open for guest boats this season. Just remember low water level years are very good for walleye reproduction. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I'll have to warn her! You must be renting a couple of cabin's at least, eh? Maybe you can play Sam at cribbage for the bill? Best two out of three? I will be posting our fishing results after opener. I am trying some new (to me) spots this year that are out of the ordinary. I may get skunked but I just hate crowds.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
