Water levels are on there way to very bad again. Temp today was in the high 60's to low 70's on the main lake.

Walleye fishing has been ok. It is slowing down in my opinion due to all the PWT pressure. These guys catch a lot of fish everyday which I think effects the mood of the schools of fish. Seems logical...at anyrate we have been getting them in 17-30 feet of water on crawlers. PWT guys are catching some on redtails.

Musky action has been great. All the different structures are holding fish and throwing something different is a good idea.

I'm guessing the gtes are wide open again. I sure hope Cass gets some rain before our trip over MEA. Last fall getting out of the harbor at Cass Lake Lodge each day was an adventure and that was after they got some significant rain.

If it's even an inch lower than then we'll have to trailer each time we want to got fishing.

Come on rain!!!

Is there much of a fall turnover on Cass to be concerned at all about? We have a trip lined up for towards the end of Sept. - will water temps be low enough to get the fall walleye bite going? Assume we'll be targeting main lake breaks (8'-12' ?) on the north end...

Thanks!

Just curious, whats the deepest you ever catch these Cass eyes? Ive only fished it 3 times, but I do know it has fishable deep water.

Chad,

I have heard many people talk about 35-40 feet and this year Brian and I watched a guy pull in a pig that he said was in 58 feet. At least that is what we thought we heard him say, he was a bit away from our boat but we could see the size of the fish and he was pretty excited and loud when talking about the depth. Myself, the deepest we usually fish is the 25 foot range but we are looking for eaters and not wall hangers. 14-20 inch does me just fine as we are only up there for 2 weeks a year and like to fill the freezer with some of Cass Lakes finest fillets.
