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.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
