Cass info

3 posts in this topic

Making our fall trip to Cass Lake next w/e. Anyone been there recently, that will share current conditions? water temp, water level (very low, low, average, dry?) I plan on crawlers, and minnows. Does it pay to find some leeches? What depths are you finding eyes? I'm assuming they are getting shallower? Day bite o.k., or shall I plan night trolling? Depths?

Any current info appreciated, thanks! smile.gif

This was published in last Thursday's Minnesota's Outdoor News.


A jig and redtail minnow has been the ticket for walleyes on Cass Lake during the day in 20 to 25 feet. At night, some fish are being taken with Shad Raps on top of the bars in eight to 12 feet. Deadman's Bar and Cedar Bar are good starting spots. Muskies are active during low-light periods on the bars and shallow weed areas.

Slayer, Thanks for the info.

My report:

Water temp when we got there was 69, when we left it was 64, after the rain.Seems kind of high for this time of year.

Water is low, but we were able to get every place we tried.

Found some jumbos mixed in with the bait-steelers.

Crawlers only got us small eyes and small perch.

Got some better eyes after dark trolling cranks in 9-10 ft.

Shallow reeds seemed to be empty.

Only had 2 days this time and I managed to hit the rainy w/e again frown.gif

Having a Ski tournament AND a Walleye tournament the same w/e makes for a busy LAKE confused.gif WHY does the DNR allow that the same w/e?

Always great to be up there- Love the lake!

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
