Six Days and Counting

3 posts in this topic

My buddies and are leaving for our first trip to Cass Lake next Wednesday (6th) and staying at Break on the Lake Resort. Wondering if anyone can give us some insight on what to expect and where to try fishing for walleyes. I have been reading the posts for the last couple of weeks to try and get a few suggestions, but now that we are closer and the weather appears to be moderating I was wondering what we should use and where we should try.

Also, how is the evening and dusk bite? Any good lighted bobber fishing locations? Any northern fishing suggestions also would be helpful.

Any information will be greatly appreciated!!

TC,

If this is the first time you will be on Cass I would suggest giving Brian Jones a ring. He lives on the lake and his dad is on the lake most days. They talk on the cell and together they have never disappointed me. I book Brian the first day I am here and he tells me what is hitting, where and what depth. He is not stingy with the information and he puts you on fish. The last three years of using Brian, we have booked 4 half day trips each year over the two weeks being up at Cass and we have had 11 adult family members take home their limits of 6 eyes each and a mess of perch. He can even put you on the toothy critters if you like and he is an avid musky hunter as well. His company is First Choice Guide Service. He is my top guide on Cass and I have had many of the "more famous" guides in the past. The only thing that some of them are "famous" for is the exact 4 hour half day trip from dock to dock and very little information that you can use after you leave their boat! Brian is a young family man who is trying to build a growing business and he has done himself proud so far. Give him a call, I know you won't be sorry you did. PS Make sure you bring him some chocolate or sugary breakfast treat and you will be in good with him. Pop Tarts or granola bars usually work for a morning trip. If you do an evening trip make sure to pack a few extra frostys and you will be set.

You'll love it up here. Break is a nice place also and Steve is good people. The walleyes are all over the breaks right now anywhere from 9-20+ft. You can drag jigs and shinners or live bait rigs tipped with leaches and minnows. Good luck!! Cass is on now.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
