Four of us fished Kabetogama out of Moosehorn resort the week of May 28th to June 4th. This is our second time fishing Kabetogama. The water level was at truly historic levels. The family that runs the resort were all very kind and helpful.
We enjoyed ourselves in spite of somewhat rainy/windy conditions on some days and completely sunny on a couple of days throughout the week. We fished the eastern end of the lake, focusing on the windy areas in the big and smaller bays, and around the islands. We caught walleye, smallmouth and pike. We found fish sporadically very shallow, and we caught more fish consistently when we were fishing the 12-18 foot depths. We probably would have caught more fish if we had used minnows, but we like throwing artificials, jigs & twisters and cranks.
We had fun as always, it’s an annual fishing trip with guys coming in from Florida, Colorado, Tennessee and Wisconsin. We will be going back there next spring as we’re getting to know the better spots after fishing it for two years now.
Again, I have to say it was tough to go out fishing when we saw so much devastation to many properties due to the horrific flooding (7 feet above normal level).
