I’ve caught crappies on Kab. in the past.  Ek bay in lost bay is very good in very early spring before the walleye bite.  Mid to late May has been best.  EK lake is filled with crappies.  You can hike to Ek lake from the Ek bay camp site and fish from shore.  I’ve never fished Kab. in the fall.  Jig and small minnow work well in mid depth.  Example:  if your in 16’ of water, have your minnow set at 8’, maybe even a little shallower.  When they’re hitting it’s great. Other times of the year you would swear the lake has no crappie.

Fish on!

I personally haven't fished for or caught crappies at Kab, but the owner at the Arrowhead Lodge told me last year that Lost Bay is the area to look for crappies. 

As for tackle, I can't confidently comment on that, but I think crappie minnows would be worth a try. 

I'm actually going up there this weekend (6th-13th), and if I get the opportunity to fish for crappies, I will send you an update!

Good luck!

1st time coming to Kabetogama the week of 8/15/2022 any recommendations on where to start finding crappie? Tackle tips would be helpful too, we typically smash 'em on the Chippewa Flowage and several other Northern Wisconsin lakes, but can't help but think it may be a different approach on this lake.

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).

Just returned from Kab. water level unbelievably high. May 12th I drove up and had 6" of water covering my dock. I placed 50 gallon barrels on the dock to prevent it from floating off the cribs. At the urging of the St Louis County sheriff, we returned home yesterday. The water when we left was at the top of the barrels. The water on State Point Rd is over 2'. The sheriff's office has closed that road and others in the area to all vehicle traffic. Check with your resort before you head up as a few are under water. And PLEASE if you go out with your boat, SLOW DOWN. I watched some idiot fly thru the back channel behind Echo Island and knocked down the sand bag wall a homeowner had put up to protect his boathouse which is now under water thanks to that jerk.

Thanks meyakas. We’ve been here since sat aug 7. Took us 4 days of zero fish to figure it out. Trolling shad raps on the contour lines was the trick. The only way to get a bite. Now the wind is brutal, hopefully it settles. Mostly saugers (13-15in) and northerns (22-24in) Not a single walleye over 10in.

Fished Kab. today.  Fishing for walleyes.  Very slow today.  Caught one 24” walleye on a Lindy rig with a minnow in 18 feet of water.  Rain storm came in late afternoon.  Walleye fishing improved before dark.  Caught a few 15” walleyes just before dark.

Fished Kab. today.  Fishing is still very slow but a little better.  Caught a few walleyes, small mouth bass, and northerns today.  Nothing big and not as many as usual for this time of year.  Have been fishing the usual patterns and presentations for June.
