Any restaurants on Cass Lake?

6 posts in this topic

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

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
