Cass Lake This Weekend!

3 posts in this topic

I’ll be staying on the Cass Lake chain this weekend, I believe Big Rice Lake is where we’re at and I was wondering what the fishing has been like lately? We’ll be coming with a group of 6, including 3 women so I’m sure we’ll spend most of our time searching for panfish, any ideas? How long does it take to get from Big Rice to Cass Lake by boat? How has the Walleye fishing been? Any info would be greatly appreciated. I’ve been to Cass once about 3 years ago so my memory is real foggy. Have a nice day!

I rarely get up into big Rice... so I wouldn't be able to give you a fishing report. We fished it one day about this time last year and got a couple of dandy sunnies and a walleye.

It's a pretty decent run down into Cass... I'd say a half hour. You go from Big Rice, to Little Rice, down the Turtle River into Kitchi then Pug Hole and then into Cass.

Good Luck!

Ken

It seems like too long a ride from Cass to BigRice so we haven't made it yet...furthest we have been is LittleRice, but I vow to do so one of these years.

For Big Rice, I have heard it is a very good LMB lake and maybe some crappie too. In Little Rice we have hit some big gills once and there are snakers and LMB in there too.

Good luck.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
