First Time On Cass...No Beginner's Luck

2 posts in this topic

I went to cass this holiday weekend and couldn't buy a fish! The weather was killer...I got rained on, blown around, etc. I trolled cranks, jointed rapalas, drifted and jigged livebait, even fished bait under a bobber. All I got for my efforts were a pumpkinseed and a rock bass. Not quite what I was looking for.

However, I camped at norway beach and I love it there! I'm gonna try to get another trip up there sometime this summer. The area was great and I hope cass will become an annual trip for me.

Sorry to hear about the fishing report... Norway is a great camping area... As for fishing I was out on Sunday for four hours and the fishing was tough. We managed 5 walleyes and a bunch of hammer handle pike.. The jumbo perch bite was picking up though... On Monday the bite turned on. I had two clients out and we managed I think 16-19 walleyes in 4 hours.. They kept 9 and tossed back some other nice eaters.

The weather is, has, and will be the story for the next few weeks... Wind, Rain, and cold was the headline, but now it seems to be wind and rain... The fish I have been targeting have been on the steep drops with a Northland Fireball tipped with a Shinner.. Surface water temp was around 56-58 degrees and I can't wait to start using crawlers!!!!

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
