      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. Initially we are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20 members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then Join Now! Some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Cass info

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!

      Leech No big fish for me so they did not get a photo. Plus look at Eyeguy’s and Rick’s photos they caught big ones. Leech when have you posted a real fishing report?   Story of my life! Should have been here yesterday or should have stayed until dark. Great fish Rick

      I read somewhere a large bow fishing pressure has removed tons of common carp/buffalo from the lakes so much so the avg size of carp has drastically fallen, in other lakes in my research (bass lakes in the south)  some bass year classes have become malnourished since the heavy bow fishing pressure, starting in about 2012 on...granted these are man made lakes with few spawning wetlands, but bait fish populations are up yet the fish show classic big head small bodies consistent with malnourishment, some biologists blame catch and release  for too many bass, yet the baitfish survey suggests plenty of food (thread fin and gizzard shad) Common carp are surprisingly nutritious, more so than even rainbow trout, we see the effect of bass that feed on trout in western lakes.  carp eggs and larva are very tiny and seem to be a significant prey item, at least in areas the year 0 fish can't hide in winter killed wetlands before they migrate back into the main lake areas. water clarity is mentioned to be up and that can happen when carp get removed, its mentioned walleyes do better in water a little less clear?
