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

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
