Fish were shallow, used lots of light colored jig heads for excellent walleye fishing (50+ over 20+” with biggest at 26”).  Tremendous cabin, amazing accommodations.

For more than 31 years our family has been coming to KaBeeLo for relaxation and renewal. We started with three and over the years that number has increased and decreased. We are now back to two, still looking forward to another wonderful adventure next year. Fishing was awesome with numerous good size walleye and northern especially at our favorite walleye spot. Thanks to all you who make this trip special and memorable. To all the Lohn’s, the staff, etc… we appreciate your efforts each year to be sure we have a successful outing.

What a great time was had by all. We had grandfather and grandson (thank God for the youth), father and son, and best of friends. (1- rookie). The six of us enjoyed good fishing and had enough fish each day for a meal. As a rookie I caught my biggest walleye and northern ever!! What a great way to experience God’s creation and good friends. We are truly blessed. We thank God for all the answered prayers for safety and weather. As a rookie I was truly blessed for mentoring and care of these spiritually mature men of God. Thank you for this beautiful place and the good equipment that we used.

God bless you all

Seven guys, three days, 275 fish. A good mix of Wally’s and Northern. Biggest Wally was 25 inches, several over 20 inches. Biggest Northern were 41”, 39”, 36”, 32” and 31”. Overall great trip and good times with the boys. Also, the 6 stumps that proved to be a trip hazard are now gone. For those of you that remember them. You’re welcome. For those of you that never saw them, you can thank us. Had a great time and can’t wait to get back!

Good luck fishing!

After a pleasant drive north from Minneapolis, we arrived at the lodge under spotty weather. Harald was his usual chipper self, and regaled us with many stories of his youth and his plans for the future. Once the weather blew over, pilots Erik and Christian flew over our group to the majestic NW Ontario Lake Jeanette, where the amazing fishing was secondary to the hours of solitude and introspection. An artic Caribou wandered into camp just as the sun was cresting the pine tops. Between the plethora of soaring eagles and the endless supply of walleye, a man could conclude there is more nature in an ounce of this wilderness than all of the civilization to which we are now required to return.

Peace to all

It’s an interesting experience, to spend six days with one life – long companion, and four guys who feel like you’ve known then all your life, even though you just met them on pack – up day.

It’s even more interesting when each member of the party has a special skill, be in catching large numbers of big fish, cooking great meals, mixing lethal cocktails, telling tall tales, or picking up after everybody else.

Thanks to John, Dave, Ron, Dan and Saul for a memorable experience, and to KaBeeLo Lodge for providing and awesome setting, a cozy facility, and the chance to make memories to last a lifetime

Great fishing! Caught about 720 fish total. 80 of them were walleye 20 inches or bigger. Our largest walleye was 27 ½ inches and largest northern was 37 inches. Ate walleye every night. Weather varied every day but it got very hot. Found a few hot spots as the days went by. Great experience!

Lynch Party

MidJune

Super fishing, each day was different weather that worked different fish from the depths and caused all sorts of excitement. Lots of walleyes and Northern!! First time we ever caught a perch. Found new fishing ‘hot spots’ – who would think after so many years that there are still spots undiscovered on Jeanette.

Be back next year . . . until then

Flew in Thursday PM – Caught about 40-60 Walleye, had shore lunch style dinner, burned because the cooks tried using a burner that had only high setting.  Figured out to use different burner & fish were excellent rest of trip.

Had trouble with pump – not running water, but Erik flew out & fixed it.

Weather was fabulous. Every day was warm, only rained one day. Cabin was terrific.

Caught 800 fish in 4 DAYS. Lots of big fish & many times when catching a walleye every cast.

Fishing was fabulous. Poker at night was fun, and we had a ball.

There is a large furry critter living behind the cabin, and otter living down by the dock, and a family of eagles living across the lake.

5 Packer Fans and one Viking fan (B00!)

Great weather. Good fishing. Too much food… not enough beer…

Largest Northern 42 11/32” (several over 34 5/64)

Largest Walleye 28 13/16” (many over 20 1/8”)

Fun fact: Breathe right strips do not curb snoring.  Dirty sock in the mouth does…(secured by Duct tape)

Check out the stars: If you happen to have a 3:00 am urge to commune with nature, instead of looking down, look up.  The August sky is Beautiful!

Contest Winner: Viking Fan won this year’s “Naked Fishing Contest”. As the only entrant, he also took last place… Only took an hour to remove the Jig…(So, he says…)

Average Weight Gain: 8 111/128 lbs. (Viking Fan Brought the average up 3 lbs.)

Harald’s Fishing tip of the day: The fishing is impeccable! Fish are located in 4 Ft-32 ft. of water.  Live KaBeeLo Minnows work the best.

MidJuly

We spent 3 days on Dead Dog before being dropped off on Jeanette.  Plenty of space in the new cabin with only us 3.   Biggest walleye was 23” caught by Ken.  Biggest Pike were 39” and 35” caught by Chase.  Strong winds blew down multiple trees around the cabin, including one on the roof.

Fishing was slow compared to previous years- suspect it is due to the late mayfly hatch in progress.

Met our neighbors in the other cabin – pleasant family of four.  We gave them fishing tips for happy hour drinks of Fireball shooters.----- a win-win trade.  Back to Florida and the triple digit heat index tomorrow. :-(

Wanted to thank you again for another great trip this year! We all had a great time and below is the 28.5" walleye I was lucky enough to catch. I have been to Ontario almost every year since 1992, and have been trying to catch a walleye of this caliber since. My brother was able to help by netting this giant and we both watched her swim back unharmed after a clean release.

Thanks again!

A couple of Minnesota, USA

LateAugust

The two of us flew into Jeanette Lake in celebration of our 35th anniversary. And, it was our very first time at KaBeeLo Lodge. Wow, what some weather. We managed to fish and catch some walleye but we did so in between rain storms, rain squalls and pouring rain. If we didn’t encounter rain we had to deal with the wind. In fact, it rained so much one evening that I thought we should wear out life jackets to bed! Final day we dealt with more weather – here it is 10:00 a.m. and floatplane is not here probably due to very heavy fog.

July

One day for the COOP group (two fathers/two sons): 4 from Nebraska, USA

LateJuly

To try and catch some walleye (we always stay at the main base and fish for northern pike) for eating and/or taking back home. Nice cabin (new) given the old one burned to the ground in 2011 (we were at the main base during that time and we saw lots and lots of action with helicopters, water bombers, fire fighters, float planes, people coming and going, etc.). Anyway, we fished walleye and caught northern and fished northern and caught northern and then switched to walleye and caught (you guessed it) walleye. Had a good time – AS ALWAYS.

4 men from Wisconsin, USA

MidJuly

We landed at Jeanette Lake for a four day fishing trip. Weather was up and down and fishing was, as usual, pretty darned good (our 8th trip to Jeanette). Lots of walleyes over 20” with largest at 26”. Northern pike – the biggest was 38” on 6 lb. test. In sum, no skeeters, good food with the fish boil a hit.

Family of 4 from Minnesota, USA

MidJuly

We landed on Jeanette Lake. Windy, windy, windy. Weather challenged us almost every day. All in all, given we have no local knowledge, no electronics and no idea what we’re doing we’re having some success and on hell of a good time. Caught fish, ate fish and are taking home our limits. Last meal was surf (walleye) and turf (steak). Great time. Great pictures. Great fishing. Great memories.

4 from Minnesota, USA

EarlyJuly

Father/son and brother combinations landed at Jeanette Lake. What amazing weather. First several days were 80+ degrees (never seen this in our 13 years of fishing at KaBeeLo) but changed last couple of days (broke out our rain gear). All total the four of us caught between 750-1000 fish with largest walleye at 28”. Rock piles and small islands were are “signal” to fish.

June

Three from Illinois and one from Kentucky, USA

MidJune

We four veterans (24th trip to KaBeeLo and 5th trip on Jeanette) landed at Jeanette Lake for 7 days/nights of fellowship, fishing and fun. Weather was great, walleye fishing was excellent (50+ walleye over 20+” with biggest at 26”) and northern fishing (which we generally don’t do) outstanding (three over 40” with the largest 42”). Fish were shallow and we used lots of light colored jig heads. Tremendous cabin, amazing accommodations. Thanks to Ann, Harald & Erik for another wonderful trip. Bear Paw in 2014.

Thanks for making our journey your way a wonderful experience. I can’t imagine how difficult this has been to juggle everyones needs to make it work. We had a great time. The fishing was nonstop and the average fish at least 2inches longer than the last time we fished the lake. This is a testament to how the practice of slot limits really works. We had the experience of most likely catching the same trophy walleye 2 times in the same day. I caught a 26½ inch fish in the AM and Chris Linn caught a fish the same size in the same spot. Makes you scratch your head on how a fish like that got so big. There must be a long string of kind fishermen.

2 Guys from California (repeat trip of 20+ years ago)

LateAugust

Weather mixed with winds limiting areas fishable but managed to catch some off the dock. Mainly catch and release and kept only fish to eat. A popper frog in the grass and lilies was a lot of fun.

July

8 Guys from 35 to elderly

MidJuly

Lots of sun, wind and fish. A large walleye at 27” was on the leader board day one. Day 2 was a repeat of Day 1 – weather and steady fishing. One boat went to Betty Lake and reported unremarkable fishing. General observations include: fish at all levels, bait of all types work, fish the structure. Helpful tips include: going to Betty Lake? Bring toilet paper because it is a long trip. Tighten the wingnuts on the motor and use caution when handling large quantities of leeches in the cabin.

EarlyJuly

Fathers/sons report weather changed everyday. We experienced “deep south” (90+ and humid) and killer thunderstorms bringing wind, rain, lightning and thunder. Fishing was the best we have experienced in the 12 years coming to KaBeeLo. Our new fishing spot was dubbed Jurassic Park because the fish were massive and plentiful. Final count of the big walleyes: 29”, 28.5”, 28” (3), 27.5” 26.5” (2) 26” (2), 25.5”, 25” (7) & 20+ inches (70). Our short stories include the “dueling 28s (two 28” walleyes caught at the same time) and the walleye that did not get away (16” walleye swallowed whole by a huge northern). Fish at every depth, lots of fun. Cabin? We very much enjoyed the new one despite great memories in the old one.

June

LateJune

Trophy winners – top walleyes were 27.5” and 27” top northerns were 41” and 36”; top perch were 10” & 5.5”. Weather was superb! Each person averaged around 40 fish per day. Boat #5 had great weather and hit water with 132 dz minnows and 6.5 lbs. of leeches. Fished 8-rock, scorched earth and rockfeller plaza with results of 95 eyes Day 1, 68 eyes Day 2, 70 eyes Day 3 and 50 eyes Day 4. Rate this lake as a B+. Boat #2 fished named spots + the humpback. Fish were healthy. New vocab for trip: “eye”, “toothy”, “shoulders” and “garden variety.”

MidJune

4 Guys/4 days. Caught a ton of walleye with lots in the 20”+ category. Weather pushed us around for a couple of days but boy did we catch fish. Here is a sampling: northerns at 43”, 34”, 33.5” 30” (X 5); walleyes at 26”, 25.5”, 24.5” 24” + a whole lot more. We even caught fish right off the dock and fed the eagles by putting guts on the rocks by point to right of the cabin. Great accommodations!!!

EarlyJune

6 Guys/4 days/fish total 614 (fair fishing). Beautiful weather with best fishing in the river. Biggest walleye was 26.5”“; largest northern was 38.5” Great cabin; like the new one a lot. Last year at Bear Paw caught 1,492 fish in early July. This year, great trip on Jeanette.
