We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. Initially we are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20 members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course.

Six Days and Counting

Recommended Posts


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!!

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.

      I do not mean to ruffle feathers but if a fish is not indigenous to a lake isn't that like introducing an invasive species?

      Is anyone planning on getting new gear for this season? I went from planning to get an underwater camera, to all new rain gear, to finally settling on merely getting a cheaper pair of rain pants to wear under my current bibs. I also got another ultra light panfish pole since it's always the most popular one on the dock. Anyone buying new boats? New rods? New electronics? New cabins?

      I absolutely love a 6 inch hole more holes per charge and a hardly ever lose a fish in the hole. I had a 8 inch and sold it. I panfish 99% of the time with some cats on the chain and at our get together almost everyone used a 6 inch hole. everyone got them up.

      As I age and cant jump off the bucket as fast as I used to I am enjoying the 6 inch for that occasional dandy panfish that comes unbuttoned right at the top of the hole. They have a hard time turning around and zipping back down.   Doesnt happen often but my chances of grabbing the fish are improved when it does.

      I am heading to Florida on vacation in a day and I'm not sure what sort of ice conditions I'm going to come back to in the Twin Cities in April. With that I mind I decided to walk out on a Metro lake with a buddy on Wednesday to try to capitalize on a sundown shallow water bite. We used big baits and fished a shallow weedy point. The Crappies would come flying out of the thick stuff and hammer the baits - it was a lot of fun to watch on the flasher! How late into April do you think we'll be ice fishing in the Metro?
