August muskie on Cass

4 posts in this topic

Anyone out there have any ideas where we might start to look for Muskie during the first week of August. I am planning on trying Pike Bay and the cabbage in Allens Bay. I am taking my son who has never caught a muskie or a big pike and I would like to help him catch and release his first big fish on Cass. He is 11. Thanks for any tips on what to throw or other locations that may hold fish at this time.

Walleye, position your boat on the breaks and fan cast over the cabbage beds and points in Allen's Bay. Use smaller bucktails and spinnerbaits that can be cast all day. Burn em fast.Browns, yellows, and reds are all productive hair colors. If there's a good algea bloom, orange or red blades seem to work well, if not golds and silvers. Dawn and Dusk are prime time....spend the afternoon perch fishing to give your arms a rest. I hope your kid sticks a pig! Good Luck!

Bob,

Thanks for the post. A good buddy of mine just moved to Phoenix, and I bought all his musky gear. I've caught them before by accident, and am going to go after their behinds now on a regular basis.

Thanks again.

Take care,

Thank you Bob for the info, we will put it to good use. I am hoping to see him boat a big pig. That would make his summer. Thanks again.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
