Official announcement (July 19, 2021): easing border restrictions

Thank You for (finally) offering year-round KaBeeLo shopping!

- Julie Smith


The 2020 pandemic has impacted so many of us in so many different ways!  Throughout it all, we are thankful for our health, families, friends & guests.

The US/Canada border restrictions forced KaBeeLo to remain closed for the 2020 season and most of the 2021 season.  Our summer months included many hours lobbying with Government and seeking financial support for the Tourism Industry – albeit with minimal success  We have worked diligently to cut spending costs & defer projects, losing 100% revenue and managing fixed overhead costs (plane maintenance, insurance etc) has certainly brought about its challenges.

Nevertheless, the Lohn family & staff remain dedicated and committed to the survival of KaBeeLo Lodge.  Many of you have asked for ways to help - listed below are some new, & some old, options to consider...

Game Recipes

Be sure to check out the KaBeeLo Lodge pinterest boards for more tasty game recipes.


Moose is one of the most richly flavored game meats, given their sheer size you are guaranteed to have lots of opportunities to develop your favourite (and not so favourite) recieps.  

The meat's flavour and tenderness will vary widely depending on the Moose's diet, habitat, cleanliness of the kill and how quickly the the animal was cleaned and chilled.  While most of the meat will be relatively tough, the loin and rib sections will yield excellent roasts.  Below are a few of KaBeeLo moose hunter's tried & true recipes.  Enjoy!


1 lb. moose stew meat, trimmed and cut into cubes (or Beef) tip: soak meat over night in salt water to remove gamey flavour
3 tbsp. oil
1 med. onion, chopped
1 soup can water
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 medium potatoes, diced 
1 C carrots, sliced
1 can tomato soup
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. basil

1 tsp. pepper

1 tsp salt
1 C frozen peas

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Brown the meat on all sides and place in crock pot. In a bowl mix together the tomato soup, water, Worcestershire sauce, basil, salt and pepper. Add potatoes, carrots and peas to the crock pot and stir to combine. Pour tomato soup mixture over all, in crock pot, and cook on low for 6-8 hrs.


1 Package of 6 inch bamboo skewers
3 lbs of Sirloin Moose Roast
3 T Fish sauce
3 T Sesame Oil
3 sliced Red Chilli Peppers
3 T chopped Fresh Basil
3 T Lime Juice

3 T Lime Juice 
3 thinly sliced pickled onions
3 cloves chopped garlic
3 T finely chopped peanuts
1/2 cup fish sauce

1. Soak your skewers in water at least four hours so help prevent burning on the grill.
2. Remove the silver skin from the roast and cut into 1/4 inch slices about 4 inches long.
3. Mix the ingredients for the marinade, combine with your meat strips and soak for at least four hours. Be sure to refrigerate this mixture and turn often (every 30 minutes or so).
4. Make the dipping sauce by combining all the dipping sauce ingredients, mix well and place in a bowl for dipping. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
5. Once the moose has completed is marinade time thread the meat onto the skewers leaving a few inches for your guests to hold on to.
6. Barbeque or grill the skewers on a well-oiled grill set at medium to high heat. Be careful not to burn the exposed wood of the skewers.
Optionally you can baste the skewers while grilling with the marinade.


Yields: 60 Meatballs
Prep: 20 Mins. |
Saute: 5 to 7 Mins. |
Bake in Sauce: 20 Mins


1 lb. ground ‘sweet’ italian moose sausage
1 lb. ground ‘hot’ italian moose sausage
2 teaspoons onion, grated
1 clove garlic, grated
2 tablespoons fresh parsley (or 2 teaspoons dried)
1-1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs (or italian seasoned breadcrumbs)
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup quality red wine
Olive oil for frying

DIRECTIONS – preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and gently combine just until blended using clean hands (be careful not over mix or the meatballs will become tough). 
2. Form the meatballs about 1-1/2 inches in diameter. 
3. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. 
4. Place meatballs in hot oil (do not overcrowd). 
5. Roll meatballs around every couple minutes to ensure even browning; saute for 5 to 7 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
6. Remove par-sauteed meatballs from skillet with a slotted spoon, and place into a 9“x12” baking pan that has been lined with foil and sprayed with oil. 
7. Pour sweet & sour over top of meatballs. 
8. Cover the baking pan with foil, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let the meatballs stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
9. To serve, pierce each meatball with a toothpick to make it easier for your guests to pick up and enjoy, and place them on a decorative serving platter


There is little meat on a grouse/game bird other than the breasts, however the rest of the carcass makes excellent broth for a sauce or a stew.

Some grouse/game bird cooking tips:

  • Since the breasts are very lean, they must be cooked carefully.  Wrapping them with bacon or pork fat helps retain moisture when cooking
  • Poaching in a broth is another good option - make a grouse broth with the rest of the carcass, or simmer it in chicken broth
  • Baked - place grouse breasts in a casserole dish, covered in white sauce or chicken or grouse gravy
  • Serve one to two breast halves per person, depending on your guests' appetites


2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 ruffed grouse, quartered
salt and pepper to taste
2 small onions, quartered
3 cloves garlic, slivered
2 carrots, julienne
4‒5 forest mushrooms
1 Tbsp mustard
1 tsp thyme
1 cup game stock, reduced by half
¼ cup tomato, quarters (optional)

1. Quarter a grouse and season it with salt and pepper. 
2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium-high heat in an 8-inch skillet. 3. Brown the grouse on all sides, remove the browned pieces from the pan, and set to the side. 
4. Add the onion, garlic, mushroom, and carrot to the pan and saute for 3 minutes. 
5. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and move an oven rack to the middle. 
6. In a separate pan, reduce the 1 cup of game stock to a ½ cup.
7. Pour the reduced stock over the grouse and finish it in the oven. 
8. Stir the mustard and thyme into the vegetables in the pan and add the optional tomato pieces. Toss to mix everything evenly.
9. Lay the grouse pieces on the top of the vegetables and pour the reduced stock over the top and stick it in the oven. 
10. Roast the pan in the oven for about 10 minutes until the grouse breast is fully cooked, around 150 degrees in the middle.


A few general rules when cooking with bear:

  • Well-done – meat thermometer should read l90°F
  • When pierced with a fork, the juices should run clear, not pink fro well-done meat
  • Generally use dry cooking methods for tender, fat bear and moist cooking methods and/or marinades for older, stringy bears, although marinades may be used for any bear
  • If you feel the bear is a bit gamy and/or tough, soak for 24 hours in a solution of 1T of salt and 1T of vinegar to1 quart of water
  • When roasting you should always cook on rack about 2 inches above bottom of pan as bear is quite greasy
  • Always place about one inch of water in bottom of pan

Everything Walleye (Fish)

When most of us think of walleye, we often think of fried filets accompanied by chips, with a wedge of lemon that, when dripped over the fish, accentuates the flavor perfectly. We agree that fried walleye is one of the most delicious ways to enjoy the species, but sometimes a little variety is needed. Listed below are a handful of walleye dishes that take a step away from the conventional, but are nonetheless just as amazing.

Walleye Chowder

walleye fillets, diced large
1 onion, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
2 potatoes, peeled and diced large
½ green pepper, chopped
½ red pepper, chopped
1 cup frozen corn
¼ cup flour
½ cup white wine
2 cups fish/chicken stock
2 cups milk
Salt and pepper to taste

1. In a large pan, sauté celery and onion until tender.
2. Sprinkle the celery and onion with flour, stirring constantly, and cook for a few more minutes.
3. Add potatoes, stock, and wine, and simmer until potatoes are soft.
4. Add all remaining ingredients and cook until the walleye is tender. Be careful not to overcook the walleye.

Walleye Cakes

Feel free to add or remove ingredients to your liking and enjoy!

1 cup cornflake crumbs
1 cup dry bread crumbs
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 small walleye fillets, finely chopped
6 baby carrots, finely chopped
1 small zucchini, finely chopped
2 small onions, finely chopped
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp dry mustard
3 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp butter

1. Combine bread crumbs, cornflake crumbs, and flour in a shallow bowl and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine walleye, carrots, zucchini, onions, garlic, and eggs.
3. Add the mustard, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste, and mix well.
4. Form into small cakes, roughly ¾ in thick, and coat with flake/crumb mixture.
5. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook the walleye cakes until firm and golden brown (around 6-8 minutes for each side).

Dutch Babies - German Pancake

image source:

A fun breakfast food & fancy pancake from guests Steve & Sophia Goodwin, FL

1/2 cup of butter 
1-1/2 cup of milk 
6 eggs 
1-1/2 cup of flour 
5 Quart pan 

1.  Put butter in cast iron fry pan and set in 425 degree oven. 

2.  Place in blender and whip at high speed for one minute.  With motor running, gradually add in mild, then slowly add flour.  Continue whipping for 30 seconds.  (Works fine without a blender.  Beat eggs well and sift flour so it doesn’t clump.)

3.  Remove pan from oven and pour batter over melted butter.  Return to oven and bake until brown and puffy, about 20 to 25 minutes.  Serve with butter, powdered sugar, syrup and even warm cherry pie filling.   


Corn Fritters

Recipe taken from an old Key Largo, Florida Cook book dating in the early 50’s - Guest Steve Goodwin, FL

makes 36-40 fritters, cut quantities in half for a group of 4 people

3 Cups whole kernel corn.  (Shoe Peg is great)
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons double acting Baking Powder
1 teaspoon salt
Pinch Cayenne Pepper (Optional)
2 Eggs, Beaten
1/2 Cup Milk

1.  In a bowl mix all dry ingredients well.  Blend in all other ingredients well. 

2.  Drop batter by spoon tablespoonful’s into hot 375 frying oil, until golden brown. (Some like smaller and use half tablespoonful’s.)

3.  Sprinkle with Powdered Sugar and serve hot.  Some like pancake syrup to dip fritters.

Dutch-Oven Peach Cobbler

feel free to substitute the peaches with any of your favourite fruits

2-3 cans of peaches 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
3/4 cup sugar, divided 
1 cup Pancake Mix 
1/4 cup butter, cut into 1/8-in. pieces 
1 large egg 
Sweetened whipped cream

1. Prepare fire as directed below. Mix peaches, cinnamon, and 1/2 cup sugar in a 4- to 6-qt. cast-iron camp dutch oven.
2. Stir pancake mix, butter, egg, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup water in a medium bowl to make a thick and chunky batter. Drop 4 evenly spaced heaping spoonfuls over peaches. Cover.
3. Arrange coals for top and bottom heat cooking and cook, checking every 10 minutes, until batter is puffed, firm, and starting to brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve portions with whipped cream.

How to Use a Dutch Oven
1. Prepare the fire. If you have a campfire going, move any large pieces of still-burning wood to the side and level out your hot coals to fit the size of the dutch oven. 
2. Set up the oven. For many recipes, you just set the dutch oven on top of the hot coals (“bottom heat cooking”). But there are times when you’ll need to heat both the top and bottom of the oven. Just scrape about half the coals to the side and arrange the rest in a circle the size of the dutch oven’s outer edge. Set the oven on top of the circle of coals, then pile the rest of the coals on top of the lid.
3. Start cooking. Lift the dutch-oven lid occasionally to check the food and temperature. To decrease the heat, scrape away some fuel. To increase the heat, or to cook longer than 45 minutes, add more wood embers (from that still-burning wood you moved to the side of your firepit) every 30 minutes.

Many people go fishing all of their lives without knowing it is not the fish they are after...

- Henry David Thoreau

Fishing Facts


“Walleye are most active during spring and fall. It’s best to fish for them on overcast, windy days, or in stained water, as the walleye’s eyes are specialized to help the fish feed in low-light conditions. Many anglers catch walleye by trolling along weed lines, rocky points, and over sunken reefs. Some of the largest walleye are caught this way during evenings of a full moon.

During the day, walleye can often be found in deeper water over rocks and in weedy cover. Then, one of the easiest and most effective tactics is to drift and jig just off bottom over likely cover until you locate a school. Walleye are a schooling fish, so it’s a good idea to throw out a marker once the first fish is caught. Once located, casting to the school can be quite productive.”

Walleye Stats & Bait


Ontario record: 22.25 lbs (10.1 kg).
Average size: Between 1.5 and 3 lbs (.68 to 1.36 kg). It is common to catch walleye topping 10 lbs (4.54 kg) in Ontario.
Temperature and habitat: Prefers stained waters in the 60 to 70°F (15.5 to 21°C) range, usually on hard, rocky bottoms, but also frequents weed beds in shallow, fertile lakes. 
Biology: Spawns after ice-out in rocky rivers and over wind-swept, rubble-strewn shoals and shorelines. Walleye are prolific and scatter eggs randomly.
Range: Throughout Ontario.

Lures & Bait

Live bait tends to generate the most success: lead-headed jigs with minnows, night crawlers, crayfish, or leeches. Colours should include hot pink, lime green, yellow, orange, white, and black.

Other anglers prefer to troll using:

  • spinners
  • spoons
  • deep-running crankbaits
  • fuzz-e-grubs
  • road runners
  • rapalas 
  • spinner jigs
  • some of the Northern Pike lures listed in the Nothern section


Ontario has the finest northern pike fishing on the continent, a fish well known for its aerial acrobatics and "aggressive behaviour".  Aside from the agressive fight and aerobatics, another challenge presented by the Northern Pike species is how to filet around the "Y-bone", click here to watch our video tutorial about how to filet a Northern (without the Y-Bone)

Northern’s begin to spawn in the spring at ice-out in spring. Spawning takes place in the weedy shallows as early as March. Prime locations to fish when angling seasons first open are weed lines, flats, points, and creekmouths.

As the water heat ups, northern pike shift to deeper water with submerged weed beds or other forms of cover or structure. During this period, deep-water trolling is your best bet. The most effective places to fish during summer are along the edges of weed beds, drop-offs, points, islands, and humps.

In autumn, when water temperature drops, northern pike become very active again. They return to the weedy shallows, rocky bars, or below rapids in rivers or streams.

Northern Pike Stats & Baits


Ontario Record: 42.12 lbs (19.12 kg).
Average size: Between 4 and 10 lbs (1.8 to 4.5 kg). Northern pike more than 20 lbs (9 kg) are considered trophies.
Temperature and habitat: Prefers water around 60°F (15.5°C) on rocky reefs and the edges of weed beds.
Biology: Spawns in flooded areas and back bays in spring. Fertilized eggs are scattered randomly.
Range: Throughout Ontario in lakes and rivers of all sizes.

Lures & Bait

Effective northern pike lures include daredevils, five-of-diamonds, red eyes, rattlin’ raps, mepps spinners, rapalas, spinner baits, buzz baits and crank baits. You can also use live bait such as shiners, frogs, and large chubs.


Lake trout inhabit cold, deep bodies of water, often feeding near shore at ice-out, and moving deeper as waters warm.  The best method to catch lake trout is deep-water trolling, but some anglers try their luck spin- or fly-fishing.  They are also known for their "tasty eating".

Lake Trout Stats & Bait


Ontario record: 63.12 lbs (28.65 kg).
Average size: 2 to 10 lbs (0.9 to 4.5 kg).
Temperature and habitat: Around 50°F (10°C) in clear, deep lakes. 
Biology: Spawns in fall over boulders or rubble shoals in lakes. Can live 20 years or longer, hence can reach a great size.
Range: Much of Ontario, except James Bay and Hudson Bay Lowlands.

Lures & Bait

Proven lures are sutton spoons, Canadian wiggler, K-B spoon, Swedish pimple, Dr. Spoon, and lead headed jigs.

Traveling to KaBeeLo

Traveling to Kabeelo

Every year we asked the "best way" to get to KaBeeLo Lodge.  There are of course several answers to that question! 

For most guests, the easiest and most convenient option is to drive, while others prefer to arrive by plane.  Listed below is a sampling of options.


The recommended route is to drive from International Falls/Fort Frances (on the Minnesota Ontario border) to KaBeeLo Lodge. All of it is paved highway except the last 38 miles which is a two-lane gravel road.

Once across the border:

  1. Go east on Hwy. 11 to Hwy. 502
  2. Drive North on Hwy. 502 to Hwy. 594 & go into Dryden
  3. From Dryden take Hwy. 17 west to Vermillion Bay & Hwy. 105
  4. Head north on Hwy.105 to Ear Falls
  5. Turn right on Hwy. 657/Goldpines Road (Intersection with "4-Seasons Tackle Shop") in Ear Falls & FOLLOW SIGNS & POWER LINES to KaBeeLo Lodge

From Hwy 657 - all gravel road:  Travel about 1 mile along 657, then left onto Wensaga rd (signed).  Travel ~ 1/2 mile, then left onto South Bay Rd (signed).  From here it's ~37 miles to our driveway (signed).  Be aware & careful of logging trucks!

If arriving by car, you will have no problem getting gasoline or diesel products. Most suppliers will take credit cards or U.S. Dollars.

Fly and Drive

Major airport destinations to consider are Kenora (Ontario, Canada), Winnipeg (Manitoba, Canada), International Falls (Minnesota), or Duluth (Minnesota).

Each airport has car rentals available. Driving time to the lodge is about 5 hours from International Falls and Winnipeg; 3 hours from Kenora and 7 hours from Duluth.

Fly only

For those wishing to avoid any significant drive time, the recommended route is to fly from Winnipeg Manitoba, to Red Lake Ontario and charter KaBeeLo Airways, Ltd. to meet you in Red Lake Ontario.

For information on Canadian airline travel, please contact Red Lake Travel at 1-800-465-3305. Pricing on charter services is available from KaBeeLo Lodge Inc.

I want to thank you, Ann, Erik and the rest of your staff for making my trips to KaBeeLo a special time.  1st class accommodation and wilderness experience seem like a contradiction, but that's exactly what makes me look forward to heading north to the Lodge.I think this was my 24th or 25th trip, hope to have another 20 or more left.

"The three of us caught 80+ walleye and 20+ northern pike on our first day. Day two was great for a suntan, 90+ walleyes & lots of northern pike with pink jigs. This was topped off by "hot showers" at the end of the day.  Third day we caught 90+ walleye and too many northern pike to count".  ---  "Perrigo Lake" Guest Comments, June 2013, Three from Wisconsin.

    Late May 2010 was a one of a kind experiences never to be forgotten. Harald and Ann Lohn operate in a little slice of heaven at the KaBeeLo Lodge. The solitude of the wilderness was just as exciting as the fishing. There is not another cabin on the lake and the only ones on the lake for the week we were there were the 3 of us. This is not so much a fishing video, but a recording of the great time we all had.
