July 4 fishing

3 posts in this topic

I'm hoping to make my return from a two-year hiatus from Cass Lake. The only time I will be available would be around the 4th of July. How's the fishing around that time? I would be targeting muskies and walleyes. Any info would be great. Thanks.

That time of the year is usually pretty good. The week of July 4th is when I start to get really excited about muskies. By then they're usually on the classic summer spots and chasing just about everything. The cabbage is thick and green and the muskies are in it. I usually fish mornings and evenings (to avoid the midday heat and boating traffic) and throw alot of topwater.

It's pretty had to get me to target walleyes that time of year when I have the muskies to play with. But, if I decide to target them I usually just troll the tops of the bars with shallow running rapalas after dark. Probably the easiest way to catch them that time of year. Otherwise, dragging live bait rigs with leeches and crawlers on the edges of the bars works well during daylight hours.

Hope this helps.

      I bet you got a great deal on it this time of year.  I absolutely love my 8" ION as it has a nice enough size hole when using ice house, also, very light weight when drilling multiple holes.  Love the reverse!  Really makes the experience more fun and not so tired as i was using strike master before and i needed to sit down after drilling 4 holes.  When and if you get to use it.  let us know what you think.   Congrats!   Bob
