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,

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
