Does anyone have any info on Kitchi Lake on the Cass Lake Chain? We will be staying at a resort on the lake next weekend. Should we be looking at bordering lakes for some action? I will have my son with me, so any type of action would be good, walleye action would be awesome.

Windy City Walleye Hunter

TK,

I fished it once about 10 years ago, trolling for walleye on the right side as you come past the bridge by the Pike Hole restaurant. Fun fact, I caught about a 14-15 inch walleye that I was reeling in and my son (who was about 12 at the time and loved netting the fish) stood waiting with the net. About half way back to the boat I see a boil start circling my walleye and then I see a fin and boom a muskie hits my poor walleye. I start reeling like crazy trying to land both fish and my son's eyes nearly pop out of his head as he saw the 40+ beast. He started shaking as the thing got closer but about 3 feet from the boat the muskie lets go of my walleye and my son nets a chewed up 15" walleye. It still cooked up pretty good as it was already "tenderized" LOL

My best recommendation to fish Kitchi would be to give Brian Jones a call at First Choice Guide Service, he has been fishing the Cass chain for 16 years and really knows his stuff. Book him for a half day or full day early in your trip and he will show you how to fish the lake and put you on fish. Mention to him that Windy sent you and he will give you a discount off his already low prices. He is a great young family man who will share his knowledge of the lake with you. Have a great trip!

Windy

Thanks for the heads up on the post, good info. Hopefully I can put the son on some nice fish.

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx

      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
