Any restaurants on Cass Lake?

Recommended Posts

Rather than taking a break from the water and driving to town or heading back to the cabin, is there a restaurant on the lake that one could dock the boat and grab a bite?

Pike Hole, Stoney Point and Chippewa Paws. They all have full menus and Stoney Point is shaping their act up... the food is becoming pretty darn good. Pike Hole is know for it's burgers and Chippewa Paws has good Italian Beef Sandwiches.

Good Luck!

thanks- are these all resorts on the lake? I thought Pike hole was up the river or something. Or can I get there by boat from cass? By the way, the little diner on by the tracks coming into town has the best pancakes I've ever had! Can't remember the name though.

The little diner by thr RxR tracks is the 371 Cafe. I see they have a 'for sale' sign out front. Hope the new owners keep the food up to par!

You can boat to all 3 of the above metioned restaurants. The Pike Hole is in Pug Hole lake which is connected to Cass on the north end... very easy to get to and plenty of docks. Chippewa Paws is just north of the dam, I've only driven there but they have limited docking, and Stoney Point is on the South end by the city...

Good Luck!

Labs,

I don't know if I would say the Hole is "easy" to get to. Depends on the water level and your boat. I know that the water was ok this year but a few years back it was nip and tuck whether we could get past the sandy bottom, pretty shallow. But well worth getting to! Love those Pike Holer half pounders.

Easy in relative terms! grin.gif Easy to find would be more accurate. I've had to get out a couple times the last 2 years and walk my boat through... most guys with a 17' and under aluminum boat have not had problems.

Last fall we heard of a hot crappie bite on Kitchi. My buddy and I both got out and tried to push my boat through the opening, but the water was so low that there was no way to get it into Pug Hole. We got hung up on the bottom every which way we tried. We literally only had about 8-9" of water under the boat! The level has hung in there much better this year. I drove my boat in there 3 weeks ago with no problem, the water was at least 1 1/2' - 2' deep.

Good Luck!

Ken

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.

      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.

      Gents, Anyone been to OT lately that could comment on ease of ice travel. Snow depth, drifts and ice.  Would traveling nearly anywhere be acceptable with exception to rivers/creeks?

      Went by yesterday. Just a pile of steel sheeting and ashes. Sad.
