Where to go on Kab in wind

Recommended Posts

lookin4um

I'll be on Kab june 2-8. I've noticed from the weather sites that the wind has been up pretty often. Last year I got caught in Tom Cod bay after a calm morning and then a 17mph blow came up out of the east. White knuckles all the way back to mid lake. So here's the question: Where would you go if the wind is up either out of the west or east? 16 ft. boat, 25 hs motor and two people. And still catch fish when not on a wind blown point?

I would try fishing the east end as there is a lot of cover down by Ritchie, Headlight, Martin ect...

A wind swept point is a good place to fish.

Usually the first place I head to. With a transom mount trolling motor, I find it difficult to control the boat and fish when in a stiff wind. Usually try to get into the windless side of an island and cast out into the waves from there.

Bring a weather radio. Not always right on, but you'll have an idea what to expect when you go out in the morning. It sounds like other than fishing, getting back to where you were staying was an issue. I started up there with a 14' Wards boat and a 15hp motor, so I had more than a few scary times on Kab. I still watch the wind and move closer to home when it starts coming up. As posted before, the Headlight, Ritchie area is good. If you're staying on the west end, the Grassies, Ram, Picnic, or Yewbush can be good. Use the islands for shelter on the way home. And even if you're on the bite behind an island, watch what's going on out on open water. You don't want to have to stay there all night.

I just got back for the windest week every. Monday & Tuesday the wind had to be better than 30 mph. We fished in where the wind was blowing,it was tuff fishing but caught fish. I have a 16ft with a 40hp. we got wet, but taking it easy it was fine. Good Luck.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
