There are three tourneys coming up in the next two weeks.

PWT, MWT and a Muskey Tourney. I'm sure over the next couple of weeks there will be lots of pre-fishing going on.

Windy is referring to Brian Jones... the best guide out on Cass Lake. The knows the lake inside and out for all fish species. He is likely the foremost Musky expert out on Cass as well... his species of choice!

There was a Muskie tournament up there on Friday, they were prefishing a couple of days before that. My wife and I spent about 5 hours tossing Muskie baits (Wed) and after our shoulders said enough we started trolling. My wife hooks into her first Muskie (33") while trolling and did a nice job landing it. Of course it takes a couple of minutes to cut the hooks and get the fish ready for release. In the meantime, about a half dozen tournament boats come crusing by (some with binocs) to see what we have. Of course on Friday a bunch of folk's were hamering the spot we caught ours at. So on Friday we're off to go after the Muskies and we see some tournament folk's casting near the mouth of one of the small bays (fishing very shallow around some reeds). We're trolling the breakline (goes from 5' to 30') at about 3.5mph and go around these guys and about a 200yrds up the break a very nice Pike (30") decides to hit. Well I get this one and it must have looked like we boated a Muskie. One of the tournament guys slams his rod down and takes off in disgust as I guess we caught his fish smile.gif Ah it was fun.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
