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,

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
