How safe is the area?

6 posts in this topic

My dad is thinking about purchasing a lot in the trees harbor development on Cass. People in Bemidji are telling him things like the police don't go into the mission area after dark and that there are murders and robberies weekly. I am wondering if you guys could shed some light on this subject. It seems like a beautiful area with alot of nice people and the fishing is second to none. Pleas let me know what you think.

Thanks,

John

I've been going up to Cass Lake for 14 years now. I've talked to alot of those who live there. Is it a perfect community? No, it has it's issues. But the claims you have heard appear to be greatly exagerated based on what I've heard and experienced. There was a stretch of time where cars were being stolen and burned at a high rate a few years ago. I haven't heard much about it recently. I personally haven't had any trouble in all the time I've been staying up there. I'll be there again this week for 4 days fishing hard.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
