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.

    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
