Water...ahead or behind???

9 posts in this topic

Hello all. My friends and I make a trip a year up to the Cass Lake area on Memorial weekend. Was just wondering if the water temps are ahead or behind what is normal? We have had great fishing the past couple of years, so I know we are due for the wrong place/wrong time. Thanks for any help.

Not sure on the current situation. But I would say for Memorial weekend that it's a little early to be looking at ahead or behind normal on water temps. One heat wave or cold front between now and then can completely change things in just a few days. I would suggest checking back about 10 days before your trip to anticipate where things are at and what you might be able to expect for Memorial weekend.

Hard to tell the temps for sure but like Aaron says check in with us the week before you come up.. I will be out guiding on Memorial Day and I am expecting a good bit by then... At last nights DNR meeting I heard water temps in the low 50's in the bays and 49 degrees in the big lake...

Hey Beef,

Where is a boat ramp on Pike Bay. We will be up there on Cass Memorial Weekend but also love going to Pike Bay for those perch. Any info would be great!

Kidding it is at the Campground on the South end of the Lake.

The campground access works if the water is at normal or above average levels. Right now we are at normal levels (really I'm not joking)... But over Memorial weekend you could get through from Cass depending on the wind direction and wind speed... If your going through the channel and the wind is pounding in from Pike Bay--Two words--Good Luck!!

Any more questions feel free to call me or email me or post them on here.. See my Link below... Good Luck...

The temp on Six-Mile lake was a few degrees above normal on Friday. You would have to check with the resorts or bait shop to find out there.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
