I believe PikeBayCommance has a 31 or 33 in his avatar. Dynamite fish from last winter if I'm not mistaken. Beef will tell you since he guides on that lake quite a bit....there are some pigs in Cass.

Cass has a lot of nice eyes in there... I have seen some HUGE eyes on Cass, but I'm still waiting on a 31 or 32 incher...

Windy City Walleye Hunter

My personal best 21" but my father in law landed and released a 32" last year, caught right outside of the narrows heading towards the opening for Windigo and then proceeded to get a warning ticket from the DNR for not having our life jackets visable (they were on the boat). The guy was pretty cool, he waited and watched my father in law land that pig and then gave us a warning tix! He caught it on 8 lb mono, amazing! We had no camera and he did not want to put it into the live well because he was not sure it would make the trip back. After we released it I remembered that I had my cell phone in my bag and it has a camera on it...DOAH!

My personal best/biggest out of Cass is 24". Caught it in early September '06 trolling after dark. She smashed a husky [jerk-bait] 5 feet down over 35 feet-of-water. Another boat about 300 yards away from me got a 28" that night, too.

26-1/2" about 8 years ago. Funny thing is, we boated this fish trolling a #7 shad rap, sunny day, straight up noon. Yes there was a good chop that day. Everyone in the boat thought for sure we had on a nice northern, but when we say that white tip on the tail we knew it was a good one.

We'll be back in May for our annual trip, hope to see more better fish again this year. Last year was one of our better years with several daily limits of fish from 18-20".

Take care - see you on the water.

I had a three year run where I got one nice fish each year. 2004 was a 27", 2005 a 30", and 2006 a 29". All three swam away to be caught another day. Not one over 22 last summer. I wonder who I upset?

My wife got a 30" on Pike Bay. I've had more 28-29.75" eyes on Cass and Pike Bay than I can count. Still haven't got one over 30" though.

My family and I used to always make it up to Cass once a year. One year about 6 years ago we were all out in the boat fishing spinner harnesses for jumbo perch when I set into something good. Ended up being a 27 inch walley which was a blast on ultra lite tackle. Thats my personal best up to this day.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.

      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH

      Anybody know if there is a pressure ridge/ice heave out in front of the Warroad Access? I know ice conditions will change throughout the coming weeks. Looking forward to getting after some pike.  The last few years there has been a pressure ridge there, last year it went from Springsteel over to Swift. And we've been up there plenty of times when there hasn't been one at all. Just curious to find out what conditions are like in that bay. Thanks!

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.
    • PRO-V
      Agreed!!
    • SaintPaulPaul
      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.
    • Iowabrewcrew
      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!
    • anyfishwilldo
      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border
