Walleye fishing on the Cass Chain has been very good the past few days. Most of the fish are holding in the 13-16 foot zone durring the day and they are being caught on crawlers, leeches and jigs/minnows. In the evening the walleye bite has been good in the 5-8 foot zone.

The bluegills and crappies are both holding in deeper water waiting to spawn with a few crappie starting to show up in the weed beds. Nest building should be right around the corner. Suspending a minnow or leech below a slip bobber and using very light jigs has been the ticket for us. Largemouth bass have been going good up in the docks and weedbeds as well this past few days.

The water level is in pretty good shape right now and the current water temps are running anywhere from 57-61 degrees. Should be a great musky opener this Saturday!

The fish are going steady On Big Wolf... I would use a Fire Ball tipped with a shiner for another week then switch to leeches or crawlers and a rig. Try 10-14 feet of water... Fish are starting to move and scatter to mid lake locations now...

Hope this helps,

        Sorry for the sideways pics - I don't have time to edit.

      By far our most common is 1/4 oz.  Go as light as you can and still contact the bottom and feel it with a sensitive rod.  3/8 would be for over 20 ft if drifting or in current.  If I can't  get it done with 3/8 then I'm drifting too fast or in so much current there aren't many fish there anyway.  They'll be in a slack area where a 3/8 works better.

      You can say that again.    I've only heard you can't stay in the same place for more than 2 weeks.  I've seen people camping on some way back forest service roads.  They didn't look like designated camp sites to me.   How long/how often do you plan to go?  Tent or camper?

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.
