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.
