News from Lake Kabetogama, Minnesota

Welcome to Lake Kabetogama.org, a place to share information on the Lake Kabetogama area.
Lake Kabetogama is one of four vast, interconnected lakes in Voyageurs National Park. Lake Kabetogama, Rainy Lake, Namakan Lake, and Sand Point Lake are part of the 14,900-square-mile Rainy Lake basin. Lake Kabetogama is about 25000 acres in size with about 200 islands and has a maximum depth of about 90 feet.

Lake Kabetogama has hundreds of island campsites maintained by the Park with docks, tent pads, campfire rings and primitive toilets. Most also have lockable bear boxes for your food. Some of my favorites are Windigo Bay, great views, Cutover Island on the south side, Grassy Island site, another one with great views, but it does have bears at times,  and my favorite, Blue Fin Bay, which has great crappie fishing, views and lots of wildlife.

Al Freeken, Senator? Minnesota Has The Countries Dumbest Voters!

Al Franken's 17 Trillion

Al Franken, Harry Reid, and the Chicago Mob (David Axelrod and company) have baked into our economy an inflation bomb that will go off when the economy eventually begins to grow at levels that are normal for an economic recovery. Remember Rahm Emanual used the housing and financial crash of 2008 to grow government at an exponential rate. Rahm Emanual could not, as he said, "let a crisis go to waste." AL Franken, Harry Reid and the Chicago Mob will use the economic catastrophe they hope the inflation bomb will create to grow our government even larger, so the Federal government will have more excuses to limit our property rights, liberty, and freedom.

The Federal Reserve has painted itself into a corner with its easy money policies known as Quantitative Easing and the Federal Reserve Bank does not know how to get itself out of this predicament with out causing great economic hardship to hard working Americans.

The inflation time bomb will have to be carefully unraveled in order to restore sound economic growth to our economy without the dangerous hyper inflation intended by Al Franken, Harry Reid, and the Chicago Mob (David Axelrod, Rham Emanual etc.) Please remember individuals like Al Franken and Rahm Emanual need a crisis to steal from you, your children, and your grandchildren.

Not What Crybaby Libs Want To Hear

A dramatic spike in the number of Americans with permits to carry concealed weapons coincides with an equally stark drop in violent crime, according to a new study, which Second Amendment advocates say makes the case that more guns can mean safer streets. The study by the Crime Prevention Research Center found that 11.1 million Americans now have permits to carry concealed weapons, up from 4.5 million in 2007. The 146 percent increase has come even as both murder and violent crime rates have dropped by 22 percent. “When you allow people to carry concealed handguns, you see changes in the behavior of criminals," said the center’s president, John R. Lott, a Fox News contributor. “Some criminals stop committing crimes, others move on to crimes in which they don’t come into contact with victims and others actually move to areas where they have less fear of being confronted by armed victims.” Increasing gun ownership, litigation and new state laws have all contributed to the rise in concealed carry permits. In March, Illinois became the 50th state to begin issuing concealed weapons permits. But the cost and other requirements for obtaining the permits varies greatly, from South Dakota, where a permit requires $10, a background check and no training, to Illinois, where the cost of obtaining a permit comes to more than $600 when the fee and cost of training programs are taken into account. Six states don’t require a permit for legal gun owners to conceal their weapons, and Lott notes those states have some of the lowest violent crime rates in the nation. The real measure of the deterrent effect of concealed carry permits, according to Lott, is not laws on the books, but the percentage of a given state’s population that holds the permits. In 10 states, more than 8 percent of adults hold concealed carry permits, and all are among the states with the lowest crime rates. Lott claims his group’s analysis shows that each one percentage point increase in the adult population holding permits brings a 1.4 percent drop in the murder rate. “We found that the size of the drop [in crime] is directly related to the percentage of the population with permits,” Lott said. Between 2007 and the preliminary estimates for 2013, murder rates have fallen from 5.6 to 4.4 per 100,000.owebum

Flooding Continues!

Record high water levels continue on Lake Kabetogama.  Docks, other than the floaters, are under water with water levels still rising.  Nearly everyone on the lake has suffered some damage, especially after a couple of hard winds on top of the high water.  There  is a lot of debris in the water, docks, old boats, bodies of tourists who didn't slow down, etc. so be careful.  If you are on the water in a boat, PLEASE SLOW DOWN when within 300 yards of any docks!  I watched numerous assholes yesterday come into shore at pretty fast speeds, throwing up way more wake than necessary.  The docks have been beat up enough, don't add to the problem.  I have a stockpile of rocks for just those people!  Rumor has it that some resorts are closed until the water recedes.  Call before coming.

Obama/Hitler Same Thing

2009_01-20-liberalism-a-mental-disorder

 

T4 Program, also called T4 Euthanasia Program,  Nazi German effort—framed as a euthanasia program—to kill incurably ill, physically or mentally disabled, emotionally distraught, and elderly people. Adolf Hitler initiated this program in 1939, and, while it was officially discontinued in 1941, killings continued covertly until the military defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945.

Socialists, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid,  Al Franken, Amy Klobuchar and the rest of the American Socialist's have just started a similar program in Amerika, code name "The Affordable Care Act".  Say goodbye to your elderly relatives (and remember, THEY decide who is elderly!).

At listening sessions, hunters give deer managers an earful

By Joe Albert Associate Editor

Brainerd, Minn. — DNR deer managers have met with hunters in three parts of the state as part of a listening session tour to hear what they’re thinking.

While some of the nitty gritty that hunters talk about varies by area – sessions have been held in Bemidji, Brainerd, and Cambridge – the overall message is the same: “What we’re hearing from folks, certainly, is that they would like to see more deer,” said Leslie McInenly, DNR big game program leader. “We knew that going in.”

The sessions, which the DNR is co-hosting with the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association, continue this week – in Morris and Nicollet on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively – and next week – in Virginia on Tuesday. Read more »

Game Warden Reports – March 28th, 2014

 

CO Ben Huener (Roseau) checked snowmobilers and anglers in the Lake of the Woods area. A meeting was attended with officers from both DNR Enforcement and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources regarding border resource issues.
CO Jeremy Woinarowicz (Thief River Falls) spoke at a career fair in Thief River Falls, checked area coyote hunters, and assisted a local sheriff’s office with a case in which stolen ATVs were recovered. A North Dakota game warden was assisted with open cases. Multiple calls concerning a bear exiting a den near a county highway were received, and those concerned were advised that this is a normal and non-threatening occurrence.
CO Demosthenes Regas (Blackduck) reports the sheriff’s office was assisted with attempting to locate a suspect wanted on a felony warrant. Time was spent closing a case from this past deer-hunting season, with enforcement action taken.
CO Robert Gorecki (Baudette) received a TIP call about an angler keeping an illegal-length walleye and then leaving on a snowmobile ride while leaving tip-ups unattended. When CO Gorecki arrived, the angler again was fishing but was using extra lines and eventually admitted to leaving his tip-ups unattended for approximately two hours. After further investigation, numerous filleted walleye and sauger carcasses were found buried in the snow, including a 27-inch walleye. Enforcement action was taken. Read more »

California Democrat And Gun Control Advocate Charged With Arms Trafficking

butcher

hillary
California Democratic State Senator and candidate for California Secretary of State, Leland Yee, a gun control advocate, has been charged with conspiring to traffic in firearms and public corruption. The charges are part of a 26 person criminal complaint and a major FBI sting operation. The full criminal complaint is a massive 137 pages that tells the story of Yee’s involvement with a broad ranging conspiracy that includes firearms trafficking, murder-for-hire, drug distribution, trafficking in contraband cigarettes, money laundering, and honest services fraud.
Yee is charged with “conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms” as well as six counts of honest services fraud. Each corruption charge is punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000, while the gun-trafficking charge is punishable by up to five years and $250,000.
The firearms laws Yee is alleged to have specifically violated make it unlawful for any person:
except a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer, to engage in the business of importing, manufacturing, or dealing in firearms, or in the course of such business to ship, transport, or receive any firearm in interstate or foreign commerce
and make it unlawful for any person:
to transport or ship in interstate or foreign commerce, any stolen firearm or stolen ammunition, knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that the firearm or ammunition was stolen.
According to the criminal complaint, Yee was involved in a wide ranging scheme to make an end run around campaign finance laws. Yee sought to illegally raise funds to retire his debt from his failed mayoral campaign so that he could clear the way for his run for California Secretary of State. Working with San Francisco political consultant Keith Jackson, Yee used his power and influence to perform official acts in exchange for donations. On one occasion, Yee agreed to call a manager at the California Department of Public Health to urge support of a contract that was under consideration by the agency, Yee also agreed to provide an official letter of support in exchange for a $10,000 campaign donation. On another occasion, Yee agreed to introduce donors to various state legislators with influence over pending and proposed medical marijuana legislation, Yee is alleged to have done so in exchange for $11,000 in cash.

North Central Minnesota Fishing Report – March 28th, 2014

 

franken_diaper

Young Democrats being nurtured!

Young Democrats being nurtured!

Lake of the Woods Tourism Bureau (800) 382-FISH

Perch are an easy catch – you just have to sort through numbers of small fish – and bigger baits tend to produce bigger perch. Look to Sand Point, Goose Island, the Hardwoods, and Duck Points in five to nine feet. Tullibee reports were limited this week off Stoney Point and travel conditions in this area are difficult due to slush.
Reed’s Sporting Goods (218) 547-1505
Shriver’s Bait Company (218) 547-2250

Fishing activity has been very limited this week due to a lack of travel options. Most of the roads that did exist filled with water and are now closed for the season. Off-road travel also is very difficult on the lake.
Loon’s Nest (218) 286-5850

A jig and minnow combination is working best for perch and hole hopping is the ticket to a limit of bigger fish. The Bird Houses area, Sugar Point, Hunter’s Hump, and south of Raven’s Point have been best in 13 to 16 feet or 30 to 32 feet. The morning and evening hours have been most productive.
Lake Winnie Resort Association

Perch continue to hit throughout the day on Blackduck Lake in six to 10 feet. On Gull Lake, crappies and bluegills are hitting in 14 to 18 feet, while Pimushe Lake is producing bluegills in 18 to 22 feet.
Timberline Sports and Tackle
(218) 835-4636

The number of fishermen has been minimal, but panfish continue to be caught. Crappies remain suspended over 12 to 24 feet on the south end of Gull Lake, North Long Lake, Cullen Lake, and Round Lake. Sunfish are hitting Eurolarvae in six to 10 feet at Roy Lake, Nisswa Lake, North Long, and Cullen during the morning and evening hours.
S & W Bait & Guide Service/Nisswa Guide League      (218) 829-7010

Crappie and bluegill action remains slow, but perch are being caught. Look to the flats on the south side of Star Island or north side of Cedar Island on Cass Lake in six to eight feet. Pike Bay Lake continues to produce perch in six to eight feet out from the south-end access and northeast corner sand/grass area.
Sunset Cove Resort (800) 279-4831

Woods Bay on Roosevelt Lake is giving up crappies during low-light periods in 15 feet. A few crappies can be had on Lawrence Lake in 25 to 30 feet, while East Fox Lake started producing sunfish in 25 feet.
Redding Sports and Spirits                     (218) 763-2191

Little Cutfoot Sioux Lake is producing perch, crappies, and a few bluegills over 20 feet. You’ll find crappies out from the northwest access on Bowstring Lake in 20 to 25 feet and perch in slightly shallower water. Bass Lake is giving up bluegills in six to 13 feet, while Tioga Bay on Lake Pokegama continues to produce crappies, bluegills, and perch in 15 to 30 feet. Big Splithand and Little Splithand lakes are worth noting for crappies over 18 to 24 feet.
Ben’s Bait and Tackle (218) 326-8281

Panfish reports have been limited to a few anglers hitting the same lakes as last week. A few crappies continue to be caught during low-light periods in 18 to 20 feet on Pleasant Lake and Birch Lake, but the bite has not been consistent. Minnows continue to turn a few good-sized perch on the east side of Woman Lake in 10 to 15 feet.
Swanson’s Bait and Tackle                     (218) 675-6176

Look for sunfish in 12 to 16 feet and suspended crappies over slightly deeper water on Lake Minnewawa and Big Sandy Lake. Tullibee action has yet to kick in on Big Sandy, but look for them to start showing up suspended over deep water.
Willey’s Sport Shop & Spirits             (218) 426-3382

Sunfish continue to hit in eight to 10 feet on Smith Lake, Lilly Lake, and Fairy Lake. You’ll also find sunfish on the north end of Lake Osakis in 16 to 22 feet and crappies suspended over 35 to 45 feet during the evening hours from Holiday Resort to Battle Point. Crappies continue to hit at night in the Dutchmen’s Creek area of Sauk Lake in 20 to 22 feet as well.
Fletcher’s Bait Shop (320) 352-2155

2014 Minnesota Fishing Opener

The 2014 Minnesota Fishing Opener is Saturday, May 10, 2014. With the way this winter is going, we might be ice fishing. If you are coming up to Kab and need some spots to try, here are a few. The west end will be the best. Try Tom Cod Bay up in the weeds in 5-6 feet with a 1/8th ounce jig and minnow. Three Sisters Island is one of the top early season spots, just look for the boats. Bald Rock Bay in 15-18 feet is a good spot. Harris Island is always a good opener spot. Fish shallow for the trophies and move deeper for the keepers. Bittersweet Island with a jig and minnow on the north side out to the channel marker is sometimes real hot. The southwest corner of the island can be good for Crappie in the evening.

May 1, 2014- Ice is real thin, with more and more open water every day.  We should be ice free or close to it by the 10th.
