Anyone hit Cass yet?

10 posts in this topic

Wondering if anyone has gone out yet. We plan on making a day trip for some walleye action next Wednesday or Thursday and were wondering if it's worth the time.

Was out A week ago from last Saturday on Cass. Wished on ice that was around 6 inches. Some small open pockets in Allens Bay but that was 2 weeks ago....It is darn cold up here right now and the past week it has made BIG TIME ice. Pike is frozen and has perms on it now. I teach in Cass Lake and have had students running all over Pike on 4-wheelers and sleds.

Perch are going well out there right now from what I heard...

Thanks for the info. Beef, We were hoping to get out to Star Island, we'll see though. Maybe safer to stay in the bays.

Hey,

I will be out of town until Sunday night, but they have started to drive full size trucks on some of the area lakes around here. I think by the time I am back from the cities, I to will be driving with my full size truck on the lake..... I am hoping to spend Monday-Saturday on Cass and some of the other local "watering holes"... I will post what I find on ice conditions and how the fishing is...

ive been living on cass this year at break on the lake resort. been out ice fishing probably a dozen times already. eyes were hittin in 15 feet of water in allens bay before the deep freeze came, then they kind of shut off. we've had lots of little perch and a bunch of pike(most of them small). i lost about a 10lb pike out there too. last time i was out there was about 6-8 inches

Thanks for the info. Right now it's teetering between some lakes in Brainerd and Cass. We're driving up from St. Cloud, so any good news from Cass will keep us driving. I'm shooting for Cass, we've had such good luck there in the fall that I would love to hit early ice there too!

4 of us went out on Sunday. 1:30-5:00, 18-20 walleyes, 7 keepers (14-18") and 1 perch. Will be up Wed-Sat. to do some more fishing. 20' seemed to be the best depth. Going to try some "new" spots tomorrow.

Good Luck!

Ken

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
