Fall Cass Report

3 posts in this topic

Well our annual guy trip to Cass LAke is now over. With the cold temps Wednesday thtough Sunday we still caught fish. Our group caught lots of 15-21" eyes with several more up to 27" as well. There was one 48"+ musky lost at the side of the boat due to inadequate net issues as well. Although I still got the musky smell on my hands as I attempted to hand land the beast.

We found eyes in 4-12 feet of water during the evenings. Most fish were caught on cranks trolled over remaining cabbage beds.

Water levels remain very low and some accesses are tough for larger boats. Water temps ranged from 43-45 degrees Saturday night.

A very good trip overall.

Nice report Borch! What baits were working up there?

Some lakes around your area have definately turned over so don't expect anything phenominal for about a week.

Good luck,

Corey Bechtold

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
