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...

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
