Travel conditions?

4 posts in this topic

Hoping to head up to Cass later next week...Can a 4x4 truck maneuver around on the ice fairly easily or is there too much snow? If truck travel is possible, where are good accesses to get on Cass and Pike Bay...preferably where the fish are biting \:\) Would snowmobiles be a better bet?

Thanks!! (We've fished Cass in summer, but never in winter...looking forward to some good fishing and hungry perch!)

I got stuck twice yesterday on Cass.... If you get out where the wind really makes some drifts, it is tuff driving... Depending on where you want to fish, will determine how good the traveling will be... We are suppose to get anywhere from 2-10 inches of snow tonight.. If that happens travel will be very TOUGH!!!!

Snow machine would be the best choice... Be aware the bite has been unpredictable lately... I was out last night on four different spots that have been holding A LOT of fish... I only managed 5 walleyes and 10 perch... I lost a pig last night and it snapped my Fireline Crystal line (last time I use that line--YUCK) There are some spots that the fish have been going strong on all year, but if your looking for a great bite all day, stay portable and be ready to move...

Hope this helps...

I'm one of those anglers that would rather not see a pout, but they are starting to move onto the flats after dark...

So far I think I have only caught 6, but 3 have came in the last week.. With 6 pounds being the biggest....

Should be going strong soon...

It seems we only recieved about 3 inches of snow on Cass, hopefully lake travel will not be to tough...

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
