Water conditions

How the water levels on Cass now? We're going to be up there next Wednesday for our annual MEA trip. Hopefully we can float a boat this year, last year we struggled to get out of the harbor. We did some serious dredging with the lower unit to get out.

You should be ok... It all depends on what they do with the dams.. If Clark reads this he may be able to give you an more accurate reading on the water levels... Clark owns Horseshoe Resort and knows this lake about as good as anyone... I know Pike Bay is low. PBC had a tough time getting his 621 off the lift last week... That was before the rain we had... Cass only recieved a dusting of the snow compared to the west in Bemidji that recieved almost 2 inches of that white stuff....

Darn right I had a tough time. It sucks we have to worry about the water levels every year now it seems.

Some accesses will be very tough if you have a high sitting boat or trailer.

Consider yourselves lucky. I've had my boat off the lift since the week prior to Labor Day due to low water levels near Alexandria. Took me 30 minutes to rock the boat (1850 Crestliner) off the lift way back then.

The rain we had earlier this week helped out alot with the water levels. It seems like the lake is up about 2 to 3 inches, possibly as much as 4 inches. The lake isn't nearly as low as it was this time last year.

You should have no problem getting out to the main lake from Sunset. As far as spots for that time of year....I assume walleyes.....any of the steep breaks on the main lake bars should produce. Deadman's, Turtle River, North Cedar, as well as some of the deep humps on the main lake. Also check out Allen's Bay.

Hope this helps.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
