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...

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
