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!!!!

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
