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.

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 ?

Windy

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
