Chippewa Paws is a nice place. Whenever I have a group on the lake, we eat lunch there. Not nealry as busy as Pike Hole and in my opinion much better burgers - and oh yeah, their home made cole slaw is to die for!

Minners,

I won't be up at Cass Lake until the end of July when our family goes up for our 20th year! I can not say enough good things about the Pike Hole, we go there every year but we did also try Chippewa Paws last year and found it to be very good food. Can't speak for the rooms as we stay at Wishbone Resort but the couple that just bought Chippewa Paws in the last year is from my home area here in Illinois and I was talking to them about the business and they have a very authentic Chicago Style Italian Beef sandwich. The owner was telling me that he found a supplier for the beef but he could not find anybody local for the giardianera. For that he imports it from the Windy City. Try them out, not as big as the Pike Hole but the food was every bit as good and prices were decent too. Tell them that a fellow "Land of Lincolner" recommended them.

I will be there with a couple buddies, staying at Stony Point. I have been around there for about 5 years and have not heard of Chippwa Paws. Where, on the lake, is it located? Thanks for the info. Am always looking for a new place to try out.

Chippewa Paws is on the North-east end of the lake, near the Knutson Dam.

Any tournaments on this fine lake? I'm looking to get in another tourney sometime between June 20th and the end of July....Never fished Cass but would love to give it a try...

Shallow,

Just look for the big flag pole with Ole Glory and a shiny aluminum pier and that's Chippewa Paws. It is right where the water comes in at the Knutson Dam.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then. 
    • Musky hunter 82
      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.

      Hey guys,   New to the forum here and I have a quick question;   I have been using seaguar knots to attach my fluoro leader to my braid, and for some reason, it is always knicking my guides, causing me not being able to cast as far. I am relatively new to baitcasters, so i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions? I was using 30 pound braid with a 12 pound seaguar flouro leader. Even tho the knot is so small between the leader and main line, it seems to knick the last few guides, and hinders my lures from dropping as quickly... any ideas? thanks in advance.
