Water temps and musky action have both been heating up. We are looking at 71-73 degree water temps. Fish are going on topwater, spinners and from reports you need to have a bulldawg on most of the time this year. The cabbage and sand are producing the best for us.

Walleye fishing has been good all around with jumbo perch action doing well too. For the eye's concentrate your efforts in the 15-20 foot zone during the day with leeches and crawlers. At night any depth goes, 2-8 foot does the best for my boat with minnows or cranks. Perch action has been good with jigs and minnows on the main lake flats in 7-11 foot of water.




To see the stringer pics you will have to go to my site and check the reports page.

Until next time!

Hey Brian,

Im heading up to Cass Lake this weekend with the family. We will only have the pontoon with. Are there any spots where a person can bobber and leech fish for Walleyes? It's my first Cass lake expierence.

We are staying at the Norway Beach resort.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What do you think, Brian? Maybe Cedar Flats? If there is some wind and you walk it over the flats that might pick up a walter or two. If not, it would bring some perch. I fished Cass for about 4 years from a 25 foot Tri-Toon pontoon boat until I traded it in on my Lund Alaskan. Fishing from a beast like that can be tough, especially trying to stay on a breakline.

Are you ready for me Brian? I am stoked, I will see you Sunday morning July 22nd, unless you think a night trip would be better. I don't know how they are hitting up there. Shoot me an email or I will just plan on seeing you Sunday morning around 7:30 ?

      Do any of the forums here have any info on this lake? Can't find a logical geographical area in any of the titles. Looking at a resort stay there with the family next August.

      Eskimo makes the best ice screws. They go in like butter! Papadarv, what are you using for a wood floor? I have the same home sweet home 949i.

      Chalstroms, Fisherman's Corner, ect ect. It didn't matter the bait shop. Is it just me or was there a bumper crop of undersized fatheads?

      The Eskimo crossover EVO are 2 person hubs on a sled. Thought you were looking for 4 person. I agree with eyeguy on the 949i moving, wind and vehicle block. I got my first one in 2011 which lacked a bit in quality and design. Eskimo replaced it in 2014 with latest design, much better unit. Part of the reason its tough to take down and put in bag is the amount of moisture the non-vented propane heaters produce (Mr. Heater and like). At 0 deg. frost will build up on the quilted seams which adds weight and bulk. At -20 the inside will turn totally white with frost so using a tie cord or bungee to tie it up till spring works well. The 949i serves 3 people nicely. 4 people is crowded with all the gear. I found the biggest challenge with moving is transferring all the gear in and out of the hub with 3 or 4. Not bad with two if you go light. I also added a fold-up floor to keep things off the melted ice, easier to heat and a bit less moisture. My buddy has a Clam 6 pack, the octagon version. Clam uses a lighter weight material so its about the same weight. Set up its about 9 ft. in diameter. Same amount of effort setting up, taking down and moving gear, frost buildup about the same its just a bit more room to handle 4 nicely.

      Has anybody tried the crossover style shelters by Eskimo?
