After supper back to falls from 7:30-9, could not get jig & minnow in water fast enough.  Lost count, over 40 walleyes for both of us.

Tucker Party

Day 1: Fogged in at lodge until 10:30. Flew out – unpacked ate a grilled cheese and went out on the lake. Yvonne caught 4 northern & 4 walleye (small). Kept 1 northern for dinner. On yeah – Jim caught 0. Came in at 6, ate, played cards & slept. Beautiful, sunny, warm day, a bunny around the cabin. Some loons and eagles and a lone seagull were the other life forms on the lake.

Day 2 – everything equalizes – Jim caught a very nice walleye, several small ones. Yvonne caught a 31” northern who she kissed and released and several baby walleye & pike. Not great fishing but couldn’t even get on the lake until noon due to rain & wind. Very windy all day. Caught everything on minnows. In at 5:30- dinner after happy hour, cards & bed. Best 50th wedding anniversary ever! Although, not a great hair day!

Day 3 – Very windy & a bit cold. White caps on the lake. Slept in and had a big breakfast played card while waiting for a break in the weather. Took a nap, read and fixed the walleye from yesterday for lunch at 2pm. Colder & winder so might be a stay – day. Took a hike. Had steak & mashed potatoes for dinner. Saw chipmunks & muskrat & bald eagle. Of course, loons.

Day 4 – Foggy and overcast. Had a big breakfast. Went out on the lake about 11AM. Went to the narrows and caught a couple of small walleyes released but the water was too rough. Went to the rapids. Had minnows. Caught a nice walleye with every cast. Had our dinner and lunch tomorrow quickly, very cold and windy coming back.

Day 5- windy & overcast in the AM. Slept in & waited for good weather. Trolled and got several pikes, 2 trophy size. Went to the rapids and caught 10 walleye – released all. Came home and rested – went back out & caught several pikes. At the cabin – chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits. Sunny and warm. Minnows were the bait of choice.

Bill & Nick our of Carthage, MO. Second year @Brokenmouth, roughly 10th year with KaBeeLo. Best fishing trip yet. Great weather most of the week. Caught roughly 100 walleye daily using night crawlers & minnows on Lindy Rigs or Jigs. Caught fish nearly every spot we tired, but best spot near island across from outpost. Caught 26” walleye, plenty of 20-22” walleye and a few large Northern as well.

Osgood Family of 5 | First TImers

LateJuly

July 30- August 2, 2016

Day 1: Osgood family of 5 arrived for our first ever fly-in fishing adventure. Dad, Mom, Jake (17), Kate (14) & Tyson (12). The Hagler party that were here before us left their fish marker, so once we got settled in, we decided to try their spot. With Jake & Kate in one boat and the rest of us in another, we caught fish like we haven’t caught fish before. What a blast. Between what we ate, what we froze & what we threw back, we easily caught 50 fish. We took advantage of no “electronics” and swam, played cards & sis a lot of reading. After fishing in the afternoon between naps wink we had great burgers for supper.

Day 2: Fairly successful morning of fishing in front of the west beach, but the highlight of the day was when Jake & Dad went out after supper (in front of the cabin) and caught one 18-20” after another. Jake landed the biggest fish -22”- on mom’s pole from her childhood. Jake wasn’t sure it would hold up grin

Day 3: Fishing, mapping, swimming on the beach – but nothing compared to the excitement that happened during our 3:00 fish. As luck would have it, we tried the falls & the sky turned black. We tried to get back, but the storm caught up to us just as we reached the dock. The wind was so strong we could hardly get the boats tied up. The screens blew out of the cabin & the rain poured in. It took us a good 2 hours to mop up and clean up. One large pine got blown over – quite the mess, but we were all safe. Couldn’t believe the wind blew the grill and full propane tanks over.

What a great, relaxing adventurous, trip for our family. Thanks so much. We can’t wait to come back.

Hagler Crew

LateJuly

July 27 – 29, 2016

Hagler Party of 5 arrived from Florida for another multiple KaBeeLo Trips. 30th anniversary since our first trip – have fished all the lakes over the years, but it’s been 13 years since we were on Brokenmouth. Fairly good fishing the first two days – the third day was excellent with walleyes measuring 25 ½”, 25”, 24” and multiple fish 20” – 22”. Best spot was 100 yards out in front of the small island directly across from the cabin.  Searched for the 40” Northern but he must have been on vacation this week.

Ate like kings … fried walleye, standing rib roast, coconut walleye.

On to Bear Paw Lake in the morning for four more days of piscatorial bliss!!

Thanks Lohns!!!

MidJuly

Arrived July 20th, 2016

Day 1 Family of 5 landed late morning. Beautiful blue skies, light wind. By the time all were unpacked & relatively situated we managed to make a trip down to the rapids. Some areas were pretty shallow, so we took it slow. Kids loved climbing up (down) the rapids to the lower lake – did not attempt to fish the lake.

Made our way back up to the Narrows & fished just off the upper west bank where we found a few hot spots. The fishing was trumped but the 8 year old who caught a 24” walleye with a salted minnow & $10 fishing rod.

Wind picked up tremendously – so no campfire. Wild midnight storm, winds so strong the cabin was shaking!

Day 2 Surveyed storm damage. Few fallen trees & thankfully no damage to the boats, cabin, etc… Spent 2 hours fishing the east bank just up from the cabin – plenty good size walleyes (10-12’ deep), some snakes & a gorgeous 40” Northern! (Caught by mom with a lead headed jig & salted minnow).

Winds picked up again midafternoon so hung out at the beaches and pretended we were in Mexico!

Great memories!

Johnson Crew

LateJune

June 22nd: Four of us guys arrived from Mpls this morning. Mike Johnson me writing and Henry Janish, Craig Johnson and Justin Johnson. One rookie on KaBeeLo Fly-in fishing held us up on going fishing. After getting him in a boat he ended up snagging a 24” walleye. He’s hooked on coming here next year. My day was the best with my fishing partner Henry we ended up catching a lot of 20” to 26” Walleyes. I don’t like to brag my best was a 29”. Man, what a heart pumper. At 68 I could take more.

June 23rd: Went out at 6:00AM, beautiful morning to be out on the water. Fish were biting like crazy and soon as we got out there 16” – 24”. Mike and Henry went to the opposite side of the lake and did just as well. Henry and I had a blast catching a couple of walleyes. We met up with the pro Mike Johnson and watched him circle our boat while catching fish. It was a blast. Came back into camp a little before dark to start making dinner.

June 24th: We got up and out on the lake by 7. It was a beautiful morning nice and sunny with a breeze coming out of the west creating the perfect walleye chop. Mike and I (Craig the KaBeeLo Rookie) ran down to the rapids right away where we did so well the night before. When we arrived we could not wait to get our lines in the water but found that they had moved to a different location. We began heading back to the big part of the lake checking every point on our way out. Turns out we didn’t have to go that far before Mike and I were hauling in Walleyes. As Mike and I were fishing I set the hook into a real nice fish. I told my uncle Mike to “grab the net”. He set his rod down and grabbed the net. As I pulled the fish over to where he could get it into the net. The next thing I know he hits the walleye in the head with the net! ! OOPS He goes, then as I bring it back around again same thing! ! OOPS! ! He hits again in the head. He finally scoops it up into the net and says “ Oh, I guess it’s not as big as mine, he he”. The fish ended up being a 25” walleye.

We headed back out shortly after eating and started fishing some more points. Catching some walleyes. 16-23”. Later that evening we met up with Justin and Henry on the north side of the lake and started back trolling and drifting along the shoreline. We were on the “x”. Fish after fish we pulled into the boat 16-24”.

June 25th: The day started with a light rain starting sometime during the night. There was no lightning or thunder. The weather cleared at 9:00AM. We experienced a morning and early afternoon of overcast skies and a wind from the southeast. We enjoyed every minute and the fish were very active. At 3:00PM it started to mist and the wind clamed. We fished with shad raps/jigs and jigging raps. It was a very productive time. Many fish were caught and most 20 inch of more. Because of the mist we used the off lake time to rebound old friendships and to talk about our adventures. It was said the weather was fishing.

The airplane flight was awesome. We all hope KaBeeLo will be here for many years for us and others to enjoy. We are thankful for the Lohn family made this adventure successful.

Elich Party

MidJune

Elich Party – Bill – Dad – Cory – son

First time at KaBeeLo’s Brokenmouth. Arrived at 9am – thunderstorms in area so did not get out to fish until 1pm. Tried small island across lake from camp with only 1 walleye to Cory.

After lunch went out again and did much better. At one point I lost a propeller jig to what was without a doubt a snag. About 1 ½ hours later Cory caught a 16” walleye with a line coming out of its mouth; my propeller jig and halt dissolved minnow was in the walleyes gullet. Cory caught about 18 walleye and 1 small northern on the same glow jig. All together we caught about 32 walleye up to 23”. All fish were caught near small island closer to camp.

Day 2- Very windy all day could not leave dock until 4pm due to large whitecaps on lake. Fished into the falls on the far south end and did quite well with both northern & walleye casting Rapalas & spoons. Approx. 20 fish up to 30” northern & 23” walleye in shortened day.

Day 3 – another late start – weather finally aborted. Slow fishing all around except at end of the day jigging & minnows at mouth of falls. Caught approx... 40 walleye, perch & northern all pretty good size (16” – 23”) in space of 2 hours.

Home tomorrow

Kluznik Party

MidJune

Did well caught our limit on the sport license. Caught some northern on NE corner of lake near the cabin. Drifted off the rocky pint & island across the lake from the cabin & did all walleye fishing.

The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources paid us a visit. They pulled up to our dock in their sea plane, checked out our fishing licenses, outdoor cards, etc. they asked about fishing, looked at the fish remains near the filet table & reminded up about fishing regs., fire danger wearing a life preserver. (They don’t like searching for dead bodies), etc.…

We chatted for a while, I said, “You guys have a new prime minister. He seems like a decent guy”. The MNR officer laughed,” Yeah, he likes to spend money, but it’s not him we’re worried about. We’re worried about that guy who’s running for your president.

I was glad that we had all of our licenses, outdoor cards, etc. & that we hadn’t taken any fish that were over the limit.

Quite a few wild orchids in the yard by the cabin. I think that they’re Lady Slippers. Very pretty.

BTW, it’s been windy the last couple of days. We lucked out and got off the lake early enough to avoid the wind & rain. This is the best I’ve Love fishing on my own without a guide. The tips from Erik and the depth finder wee a big help. I could have left my trolling rods at home. Likewise, the leeches & night crawlers were unnecessary. Minnows & lures are more than adequate.

Aug 9th

DAY #1: Trolled around lake with medium depth lures (Rapalas) to try and locate the fish.  Pretty slow day – ½ dozen fish; 5 walleyes, 1 pike.

DAY #2: Trolled a bit more – casted weed beds and had good pike action.

DAY #3:  Put on spinner rig w/leeches and twister tails and drifted in 20’ plus water – LORDY – GREAT walleyes!!!  26”, 27” & 28”!  AND LOTS!

DAY #4: Stayed in 20’ + water and caught lots of nice walleyes!!!

DAY #5: Repeat of days 3&4!

DAY #6: Harald came out and we had a blast – caught lots of nice walleyes.

DAY #7: As long as we stayed in deep water we caught nice walleyes.

DAY #8: I think a hurricane came scooting thru as we never were able to leave the cabin.  Somehow the plane came @2pm and took Harald back to the base camp.

DAY #9: Ho Hum – never seemed to NOT find nice walleyes!!  As long as I drifted in 20’ of water this has become a no brainer!

DAY #10: I think the group of eagles had to have been here, looked out on a sunrise like this and came up with the words “Just another day in paradise”!  Beautiful day – lots of nice fish and not 1 northern pike!  I think in all the years I have been coming here this is a FIRST!

DAY #11: Aug 19th Ugly start – gray, drab, raining!  Last day of trip ‘til next year – Just went in front of cabin about 200 yds straight out in 20’ of water and in 10 minutes had my dinner walleye!  Last meal of the trip – It was great and as always – memorable. 

2014 Season

Mike Johnson & Henry Janish | Mpls MN

LateJune

6.25.2014 Day 1 - This is my 18th time going to KaBeeLo and my first time at Brokenmouth.  Impressed with the size or average size of walleyes – 18 to 20 inchers.  20-23.5 were the largest and were fishing the main part of the lake. 

6.26.2014 Day 2 - Up at 5am on the water at 6am.  Great morning fishing. 20” walleyes common 26” the largest.  Best I have seen in a long time. 27-1/2” northern also caught.  Went to the falls after lunch, very scenic.  Walleyes were plentifull 22” the largest.  33” northern was also caught.  The larger sizes were not consistent at the falls.  Evening 5:30pm fishing was done closer to the cabin we fished until 8:30, walleyes were larger, could not land one in under 18”.  Walleyes were 20” to 24”.  One large northern 37” was landed.  Some northern smaller were also caught.

6.27.2014 Day 3 - Got up early, 4 am and fishing by 5:05am,  Just fishing near the first narrows on main lake.  All walleyes were in the 18-20” range but one at 26” for the morning.  Came back at 10am and made breakfast, nice day with wind & clouds.  Afternoon wasn’t as good with it warming up.  Biggest northern 33” on a jig.  May writing can you tell I’ve had a too many cottails….

6.27.2014 Up at 4 am on the water by 5 am.  Walleye fishing was good 19”-24”, caught some on a slip bobber setup.  The fish would take the bait on a slow retrieve at times.  Cloudy sky no sun today.  The wind is light and it rained but nor hard.  We fished in as bay with spoons.  The bay produced 6 small northerns.  One 33: northern was landed in open water on the larger part of the lake.  Went for a meal at 10 am it is raining heavier now.

6.27.2014 Day 4 – After lunch we were back to our choice fishing spot as the rain had stopped.  We came very close to landing the largest walleye we have seen.  It was not to be this trip, hope that fish will be here next year.  We will recommend this adventure to anyone.  We had a great time and both of us hope to be at this lake next year. Henry.  Thanks a lot to the Lohn family.

Jim’s 3rd time at this cabin

** Mesquito Alert **

1st day – getting to know lake and rocks in the lake.  Caught 9 or 10, windy warm day. Caught some across from cabin, jigs & leeches.  Cooked 3 for dinner.

2nd day – read about the falls so headed there in am.  It was true, caught 20-25 really nice fish.  Going back this evening for dinner.  Still windy but very nice day.  Back to falls around 4:30pm the fish are biting but we’re out of bait (which my husband has been baiting my hook along), so he asks what kind of lure I would like.  I say “you got anything pink” he says “oh yea – snicker – snicker –“ so he ties on a little pink multi colour spoon.  I cast out and proceed to pull in a 20” walleye on 1st cast.   He was stunned but that’s about how the evening went.  He also caught a few releases and we had a great walleye dinner.

3rd day – rained last night + heavy clouds this morning, going back to falls – last day went to falls, cold weather, still catching fish with pink spoon (1st cast).  Jim finally got spoon away from me and immediately caught nice walleye on 1st cast.  He caught a few more then went to cabin to start cleaning up – Mosquitos were so bad we couldn’t sit outside 0 just as bad inside.  Had a great trip!!!!

MidAugust

father/daughter fished lake from the get-go. Early fishing was tough but moved our boat and GUESS WHAT? We caught fish. Found out that gold jigs were the answer to catching fish and used a lot on Day two. WOW! Day three with gold jigs and minnows we caught fish and basked in glorious sun. Day three – R.A.I.N.E.D – a lot! We stuck it out & had a blast with northerns.

EarlyAugust

Great – we got out ½ day early because no one was on the lake. After settling in we fished right off the dock – Dad caught ‘em but no one else. Second day, of course, we got into the fish despite the wind and rain. But, spark plug was loose on one boat so stranded for a bit until “rescued” by the rest of our party. Day three, more rain and more wind but fish we caught. Lots of them. Day four we begin to catch fish when WHAM – hook in the hand. It hurt but we managed. Looking for the rescue plane but nothing came by. We survived. Day five, our last, we fished, caught fish, had equipment problems while some napped.

2010 Season
