Cass Lake Poker

10 posts in this topic

What is the best place for some Texas Holdem? Who has the most players and biggest stake games going? Any tournaments?

I will be up fishing 10/6-10/9.

Dave,

Unfortunately, the casino in Cass Lake has decided to take out the poker room. What a drag. We go up there for two weeks each year at the end of July and first week in Aug and I was very dissapointed to find this out this year. They have replaced the poker room with three card poker and blackjack tables. I did find some good games at the Northern Lights casino in Walker which if you do not know is only about 21 miles from Cass Lake. You just take the road past Froggys Bait Shop all the way into and thru the town of Walker and you will hit the Northern Lights casino on your left side.

Funny story real quick this year I sit down with my usual $100 at the $3/$6 table and the first hand I get dealt pocket rockets, the guy two to my left gets pocket queens and I take him and the table for about $60. I was just smooth calling and didn't raise till the river. The next hand I get 8-5 off suit and I bet, raise and re-raise like there is no tomorrow and I bluff the same guy off the hand at the turn for another $45 and to boot, I show him my bluff after he folds! The third hand I get pocket queens and the same guy has big slick. The flop comes up A-K-Q and I take him down for about another $50! In three hands I am up over $150 and the guy gets up and leaves the room after that hand. The rest of the guys just bust out laughing after he was out of ear shot. Funny stuff.

Unfortunately, my wife loses about $75 of my winnings at the one armed bandits but that still left us enough for a good dinner at one of then nicer restaurants in Walker that night! Got to love a good poker story. Try out the Northern Lights, not a bad poker room for an indian casino. It's not Vegas but it ain't too bad. Good Luck, Windy.

White Oak Casino in Deer River, on US Hwy 2, has a poker room too.

Tofish,

How far it that from Cass? I'm not too familiar with Deer River.

Take Hwy 2 East out of Cass Lake about 25-30 minutes... just past Big Winnie... the intersection of Hwy 46 and Hwy 2...

Good Luck!

Windy,

You must be going up through the TC if you don't know Deer River. We go up through Duluth and take 2 West and almost always stop to eat in Deer River. Try it, you'll likes it!

Geno,

We used to go up through MN but found that the Cheesehead route was easier on towing the boat. I just never really paid much attention to Deer River and how far it was to Cass but I think now that you mentioned it I do remember a little casino. Isn't it about 45 miles or so from Cass? We still like to go into Walker to hit some of their restaurants. The Zona Rosa is a Mexican place that is outstanding for MN standards.

Me and the Mrs. usually hit Walker the first week up there by ourselves and do the casino for a few hours and then dinner.

We usually go into there on the second week with the entire IL troops, about 23 of us and the women do the shopping thing, hitting all the stores and then getting some fudge before heading back to Cass. The guys usually hit Reeds for a while and then head down to The Wharf. We call it the Pelican bar and they have free popcorn, ice cold brews and bar food. Their nacho platter is pretty good and their cheese curds are to die for.

So we will probably keep going to Walker when I get the jones for some Texas Hold Em since it is only about 20 miles past Froggys. Talk to you later, this is getting me all pumped up for Cass 2007 but we have 10 MONTHS TO WAIT! ARGHHHHH

Hey Tofish,

Rockford, I think I spent a week in Rockford one night! (rim shot please) But anyway, try the veal, I'm here all week! Kidding.

The last time I was in Rockford, not on my way to Cass, I think I was at the Rockford Speedway seeing REO Speedwagon and The Cars. Now that will date me! I went to college with a few guys from Rockford. My fellow Huskies used to speak highly of their home town, but then again, they used to drink a lot! Talk to you later, Windy

Hey Rockford's a decent town to raise a family. It just doesn't have enough outdoor recreational facilities as Bemidji does...if you know what I mean! LAKES, LAKES and more LAKES!!!!grin.gif

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400. 

      Thanks for the Update, I think that I did see less birds out on Edwards as well later this summer. Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :)
