Check with Chaz at Boondocks he will shoot you straight. I was there last Saturday and travel was no problem.

Dog gone Chris! I have to pay attention! Sorry, I just saw the msg. Yes, I have been on top of some crappies. Not great numbers but there have been fish to be had. It is rarely a numbers game but when you hit the weather and the other things we cannot control right...it is something to remember! It is coming. Lots of snow and slush may limit travel...but I will not be kept away.

Not much for ice roads on Leech Lake. The best and perhaps the only one goes out of Trappers Landing near Whipholt. Josh does a good job of keeping access open and they have plowed roads leading to productive areas. There are also access points at Pine Point Resort and Walker City Park. Not much for roads but travel is not a big issue right now. Be careful around ice heaves and approach untraveled areas with caution. Most places I have been have 12 to 16 inches of ice. Stoney Point is ugly with heaves right off the shore. I have hammered through it a couple times but I would not recommend it! You can find fish all by yourself if you are willing to pat your dues!

Any updates after the rain/ice/snow storm? Want to fish Walker Bay or Sand Point area tomorrow. Also want to make sure there is good ice.


Bergy,

I have been on the ice nearly every day over the last week. The bay has good ice on the Northern half...anywhere from 6 to 10 inches where I have been. I have heard of an open hole in front of Cochran's but I have not been over to check on it. Use caution, but you should have easy riding. I was also out earlier today in windy conditions. There is a fresh heave heading straight east off of Sand Point, but it doesn't seem to go more than a half mile east off the point...it was not there a couple days ago btw...

The main lake has a nice sheet of ice on it right now. There is a large active crack from Pine Point that heads off NE toward Ottertail. That one will likely be a problem for truck traffic all season. It has changed from day to day with water on the ice in some spots. I have found anywhere from 8 to 12 inches from Walker Bay Narrows to slightly east of Stony Point. There is some broken ice around Stony, but it should not be an on going issue. The heave off the point fizzles out as it goes north and east. I wouldn't drive out yet, but there are people driving out from Pine Point Resort.

Be careful and good luck.

Fish of all species can be had on Rainy Lake right now. Yesterday was a tougher day for walleyes. We caught fish from 32 feet to 3 feet. The most active fish seemed to be in water shallower then 4 feet. With a few consistent weather days the walleyes should go nuts. Crappies have slowed in some areas and are going strong in others. Small jaws are coming up as I type. We caught a number of them yesterday while walleye fishing. Please consider releasing the smallies as they are on or near their nests!

After a cold and nasty opener the weather has got Rainy Lake walleyes starting to put on the proverbial feed bag! Most of the fish we caught the first 3 days of the season came from deep water (26 to 34 feet) which was the exact opposite of what I was hoping for. But, that has changed big time starting on about Tuesday. Water temps have climbed back into the low 60's in certain shallow areas and the minnows are there...which means the fish that eat minnows are there as well. Crappies, walleyes, pike, and smallies are all biting right now. Rainy Lake walleyes have been coming out of 2 to 5 feet of water the last couple days. Man they fight in the shallows! Get up here and experience some fantastic shallow water walleyes!

Hello everyone,
I'm getting ready for the opener up at kabetogama. I was wondering I anyone knew if the walleyes have spawned yet with the warm weather the last week or so, or if they haven't yet? Thanks in advance


Ronking 11,

Sounds like great times are ahead for you guys! Kab is an awesome lake. I live on Rainy, but I am sure the walleyes have completed their spawn. I have found water temps on parts of Rainy Lake in the low 60's and have heard of temps in the Rat in the mid 60's already! I have 50's around my boat as we speak!

I will be looking to shallow warm areas for my walleyes this weekend. Find the warmer water and find fish...at least that is the theory. More importantly, find the food. If the shallows are "alive" there will likely be predators nearby. Even better, if you can find some emerging weed growth along with food, then you may have the opening weekend gold mine! Kab is like Rainy in the sense that there always seems to be some fish deep as well...regardless of season. In my experience, current areas combined with deep water (here 30 to 40 is about right) are the early season action spots. I can think of a few on Kab! Follow the current and you will find fish in deeper water.

I expect a decent opening weekend regardless of the weather. Actually, opening weekend is just one of my favorite weekends of the year. It's family, friends, fun, memories, and maybe if we are lucky...it's also a big meal of fresh walleyes! Good Luck.

DoRight

Today we were cut short by steady rain. Better to get off and be safe. The ice is getting softer by the hour it seems. Randy, Frank, and Jeff iced about 14 crappies in a couple hour tour. Not bad considering the weather. Yesterday Dave had steady action all day. Largest one was just a shade over the 15 inch line. Lots of 12 to 14's...just absolute fun for huge crappies. Good job guys! That oughta about do it for ice season 2016.

There is still 20 plus inches of ice in most places I have been the last 4 days. There are places where I found 15 or so also. Much larger areas of bad areas now. Proceed with caution! Today and or tomorrow will probably be my last guided trips. The last few days have been excellent. Just beautiful out there yesterday as the fog started to lift.
