I have been there once when I was in high school. It was my first trip to Cananda and it was awesome. I can't wait to go back there and take my 3 year old son along when he gets older. My dad has a group of guys that go up there every year in June and they have a great time. I thoguth the camp was real nice and good cabins.

There is another guy (fishook) on this HSOforum that is part of that fishing group that I am sure will chime in.

Been to Kabiwabic many times, you will enjoy the fishing. The portages are incredible. If they get a chance, fish walleys near the waterfalls. Been many years since I have been there but it was a great fishing experience.

Stay warm but I bet you guys will have a great time.

I have only been up to Lac Seul/Minaki but Lac Seul isn't too far from Pickeral if I remember right.

Please make sure to stop back and let us know how it went.

Been going to Pickerel Arm for the past 20 years. Always stayed at base camp and fished Minnitaki. Make sure you talk to Lee about limits and stuff of Kabi as some of the fly-ins have special limits and restrictions. Kabi is a great Walter lake from what I hear. Like others had said, lots of sunken rocks and points so be careful with the boats and bring a GPS.

I was up there from Sept. 9-14 with a group of six guys. We caught alot of walleyes, biggest was 27 1/2". Most of the guys fished for walleyes while my brother-in-law and I fished for pike. We had alot of action all day and caught some very nice fish. Seemed very wierd, but they don't have any smallies in the lake. One of the guys caught a large eelpout in 40' of water. Check out the waterfalls area, lots of small fish but very nice view.

Been going to PAC since 1985. Minnitaki is a real walleye factory. There are two Kabis: Kabiwabic and Kabikebic (spelling is close at best). We have never flown to an outpost (Lee has 8 or 10 of them) but stay at the base and take our own rigs. There may not be any smallmouth bass in Kabi, but Minnitaki has plenty of them. We generally make the June trip (the guys) and go back with the wives in late July/early August. Lots of great memories from up there.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
