Water conditions

9 posts in this topic

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.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
