Kabetogama area fishing, ice conditions and snowmobile trail report. 1/21/20

2020-01-21T20:08:18+00:00Fishing Report|

Kabetogama area fishing, ice conditions and snowmobile trail report. 1/21/20 A week later and almost two feet of snow has left the snowmobile, snowshoe and cross-country ski trails in premier condition. Unfortunately, off the trails, Kab is experiencing significant slush and deep snow with 4-5 ft drifts scattered throughout. This has made fishing tough for most, if not all, that don’t have machines that can handle the extreme conditions. Fishing has been consistent for those that make it to their destination as the bite seems to be picking up some. As anglers are noticing that fish being caught are filled [...]

Kabetogama Fishing Report 12/31/19

2020-01-13T15:53:15+00:00Fishing Report|

Kabetogama area fishing report, snowmobile trail and ice conditions.  12/31/2019 Snow and more snow!  Fishing inconsistent as ice conditions deteriorate and snowmobiling coming on strong. As we move into the new year, the northland is looking a lot more like winter.  Over the last week we have had two snowfallevents and now have a good 20 inches or more on the groundproducing slushy conditions making travel difficult on the lake.  Snowmobilers are a more common sight, but some caution needs to be taken when hitting the trails.  As of today, the only open, groomed trail is the Green Trail from [...]

Kabetogama Area Fishing & Outdoors Report/Ice Update

2020-01-13T15:52:53+00:00Fishing Report, Uncategorized|

Kabetogama area fishing and outdoors report/ice update December 14th, 2019 Poor ice conditions remain throughout the area.  Fishing has been up and down with the recent weather fronts with most anglers reporting similar success regardless of your destination on Kab. Not much has changed in the last few weeks.  With ice conditions continuing to be slushy, fishing and snowmobiling activities remain limited to snow packed areas.  Some trails are being groomed within Voyageurs National Park, but vehicle traffic is totally non-existent as the government shutdown is keeping park personnel from plowing the ice road and limiting the extent of trail [...]

December 11 KAB Fishing Report

2019-09-20T17:33:17+00:00Fishing Report|

DECEMBER 11, 2018 KAB FISHING REPORT Let the fun begin! As we now have a solid 6-10 inches of ice throughout most of Kabetogama, more anglers are venturing out to their favorite fishing hole and finding success. The cold weather and lack of snow has helped make some good ice this past week. Working soft bottom areas during the day and then fishing edges of reefs early morning and just before dark has been productive. Changing up your presentation as needed is key to being successful. On a recent two day stretch, one day jigging aggressively was the ticket and [...]

Fishing And Hunting Report 10/7/18

2019-09-20T17:33:26+00:00Fishing Report|

Fishing and Hunting Report 10/7/2018 Fall hits the north land with unseasonably cold, wet weather. We are well ahead of schedule as it seems like we can’t break free of this late feeling fall weather. Most loons have lost their color as they congregate in large groups preparing for their trip to the gulf. This generally happens later in October, but it is obvious we have seen many begin their trip already. Fall foliage colors have peaked and most trees are losing their leaves quickly which has improved grouse hunting now that visibility is better. Deer are more active as [...]

FISHING REPORT 8/6/2018

2019-09-20T17:33:35+00:00Fishing Report|

FISHING REPORT 8/6/2018 This can be a frustrating time of year on the walleye front, butfishing remains consistent on mid lake reefs and island points in the 22’-32’ range.  Leeches and crawlers are the preferred bait on slip sinker rigs or a spinner behind a bottom bouncer but there is still has been a jig and minnow bite so you might want to have all options at your disposal.  When the wind blows, as always, the rule of thumb is to fish the windblown weed lines.  Not much new there as that has been a common theme throughout the fishing [...]

Fishing Report 7/22/2018

2019-09-20T17:33:44+00:00Fishing Report|

Fishing takes a backseat as we head into the dog days of summer.  Fish are there but most are focusing their attention on more summerlike activities.   The berry season is in full swing and with a bumper blueberry crop on hand you don’t have to go far to find a sea of blue on the ground. Find any well drained rocky area with good sun exposure and you are sure to find some.  The berries began ripening early this year, so we have had an extended picking season.  Don’t wait too long though as they are starting, if not [...]

Fishing Report  6/24/2018 Significant weather change and first mayfly hatch of the year Last week we saw hot, humid and windless days affecting the bite.  You needed to be on the water as the sun came up and the last hour before dark.  This made fishing tough as you also needed to know where to be during those key hours or you would miss out on the bite.  Soft bottom shallow areas produced well as the first significant mayfly hatch was in the making.  We did have a less noticeable hatch a few weeks ago but most didn’t even notice.  [...]

FISHING REPORT 6/17/2018 Rain finally subsides and after leaving a weather filled week we are looking ahead to great one! Walleye fishing continues to be good, but we are seeing some changes as we have moved into a more summer like pattern with fish more frequently being found on reefs.  That being said, jigs and minnows are still turning fish, but split shot rigs tipped with a leech or half crawler is starting to be more productive off the edges of the mid lake reefs.  Soft bottom areas are still your go to when looking for active fish as the [...]

2019-09-20T17:38:53+00:00Fishing Report|

Fishing Report 6/10/18 Fishing continues to be good as water levels rise and temps remain consistent Normally this time of year most anglers are putting away their jigs and replacing them with lindys using mostly leeches and not too far behind, crawlers.  This year is different.  A jig and minnow combination is still a deadly combination in traditional spring areas.  Recently water temps have leveled off in the 60’s and not risen much mostly due to the cool nighttime temps and rain we have received recently.  Water levels have just about peaked making docks a lot easier to tie off [...]
