7 posts in this topic

Is there/who all rents sleeper shacks? Thinking of coming up for a night or two. If so how long do they stay on lake?

The second week in March. You think they'll still be out then?

Yep, I will still be out fishing but using perm's I doubt it... It all depends on the weather... Usually that time of the year, the sun get's high enough and we start getting honeycombed ice... I would call Break on the Lake or Cass Lake Lodge and check with them on their perm's that time of the year.

I would think that time of the year you would rather want to use portables and stay on top of the perch and panfish instead of being set in one spot. Plus with the warmer weather you most likely would be doing a lot of open ice fishing..

March is my favorite time of the year for ice fishing because I can run and gun and find various schools of crappies, bluegills, perch and tullibees... To drill 80 holes is not uncommon...

If you have any questions let me know...

Good luck,

Beef

Thanks for your help. Talked with Cass Lake Rentals. got all info we needed. We'd be coming up late afternoon is there much of a night crappie bite?

A night crappie bite on Cass? I've honestly never heard of one....ever. From what I know about Cass Lake crappies, unless you target them when they're spawning, it's pretty much like the proverbial "needle in a haystack".

Too bad. We'd only be coming up for a night that way then going a li'l further to big pond. Rather fish through the night a li'l than go to hotel.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
