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 ?

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
