Kab fishing, ice conditions and snowmobile trail update. 12/17/2019.
Ice conditions continue to improve on Lake Kabetogama and the reports coming in are good to excellent. Most areas have 8-12 inches of good ice and more walleye anglers are venturing out using snowmobiles and side by sides. Casey from Reef Runner Rentals is experiencing a good bite and expects to have a great start to the season. Vehicle travel is still not advised but snowmobiles, ATVs and side-by-sides are working well to get anglers to their favorite spots. Spear fishing has slowed somewhat but continues to keep people on their toes! You never know when the big one might come through.
Snowmobile trails are just about ready to go and with the fresh four inches of snow we received yesterday and last night snowmobiling should be excellent. The park service has yet to stake any trails on the lake but expect to be doing so soon.
If you are heading out on the lake to do some fishing Gateway has all the bait and tackle you need. We carry the most popular colors and sizes of jigs and spoons as well as all the live bait you need. If you are hitting the snowmobile trails, we have hot food and beverages to keep you warm and your belly full.
Have a great and safe week and we’ll see you soon!
