Fishing Report Feb. 24th

3 posts in this topic

Well the season is almost over for eye's and Pike and the best part of ice fishing is almost here... Ice conditions continue to be great and the snow has stayed away for the most part.. We are still having a tough time getting around some areas of the lakes due to snow drifts and snow depths... Fishing has been hit or miss this past week. Cass has been a very tricky lake to figure out this winter. The perch could be hitting awesome one day then for a week it is REALLY slow.. Walleyes are going for about and hour at sunset then are done when the sun drops down below the horizon... I have already started to shift my focus to the panfish and I've included some sweet crappie photos and a nice jumbo perch photo.. The highlight of this weekend has been the open ice fishing. It is so nice to stand/sit/ or kneel on the ice without having to be in a shelter with the heater cranked and trying to stay out of the -20 degree plus temps and the -40 --- -70 windchill...

The bait of choice has been a mix of Northland Tackles Fire Eye minnow and the Forage Minnow spoon.. I was tipping the Fire Eye with Euros or Waxies and the Forage Minnow with a minnow head.. The crappies were suspended about 6-12 feet off the bottom and the perch are coming straight off from the bottom of the lake...

Good luck and stay safe...

      I think I have  been checking the 10 day forecast every 20 minutes hoping the ice will come faster

      I'm looking for the best and cheapest place to get a 30 pound propane tank filled. Seems like all I can find are exchanges for 20 pounders.
