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.
