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!

Boat Ramp on Pike Bay??? grin.gif

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.

      I found fish on Friday like the old days it was a lot of fun but I decided not to deal with the slush and the sled on Sat.  I heard that may of been a good decision because I heard people burning out their sleds in the slush, running them wide open just to barely move.     Nothing like sledding in a rain storm, I guess to find them it has to be painful.

      HI ... I was out on a Lake Saturday Morning and two guys I noticed were catching nice Crappies hole hopping with electronics of coarse.  Finally after a bit from a semi far distance (far enough to not be able to see color but know it was the vertical spoon ones) I asked what they were using as they were packing up.  "Forage minnows no bait" one said.   So my question/s is?   Has any one fished Crappies with these?  I am a pug bug plastics guy here for Pan fish.  What particular colors has anyone had success with?   I am assuming the smaller spoon but I see they come with treble hook and or single hook?   Bob

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...
