Kabetogama-Namakan-Ash River Fishing Report 1/31/16
WOW, what a beautiful weekend on Kab. Lots of fishing, little villages set-up off the ice road. Snowmobiles loving the smooth lake trail, cross country skiers and even snow shoe enthusiasts. Readers, it does not get any better for winter activities.
Now let’s get to fishing- the big story is still Jumbo Perch and well above average saugers, toss in some pike, huge whitefish and of course burbot. Yes, the lake is active, and yes, I didn’t mention crappie or walleye.
Walleye bite still slow, anglers report they’ve shifted with baitfish, and cappies just not cooperating. Live bait with ballhead jigs or ice jigs doing the trick for all species.
Ice road access has been great, it puts you on fish, or access to nearby spots.
Land snowmobile trails have been groomed, however, lots of weekend traffic put the trails in a little less favorable conditions. If nature gives us a few more inches of snow our trails will upgrade to excellent.
See you soon,
Cabby Phil & Ellen Hart
