  Weekly Fishing Reports

Nearing the end of the Summer Pattern

‚ÄčThis week has brought lots of heat, sun and not much wind but fishing has continued to stay consistent on Kab with best luck coming in 22-28ft of water on crawler and leech live bait rigs. Namakan the bite has slowed down and they seem to be deeper around 28-34ft being the best.

We are nearing the end of the summer heat and fish will soon transition to many different areas of the lake so don't be hesitant to try new things as water temps drop.

Later in the year I also start to make a few trips up to the Southeast end of Rainy lake where the closest access is from our Kabetogama area and portaging at Kettle falls.This is a gem that not enough people know about that you can get to from the Kab area!

The bass fishing in deep 25-35ft of water has been great recently and catching lots while walleye fishing even. Try these depths with drop shot rigs with crawler or even pitching jig/plastic combinations on some of the deep humps to trigger some of them footballs into biting!

Best big pike action still seems to be deep water 20+ft. Try getting your bigger baits over this depth and you should succeed!

Fun Fishing,
