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,

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
