RoughFishin' posted a topic in Bemidji Area, Cass, Leech and Winnibigoshish Lake Fishing Reports - HuntingAnyone know what cass is lake these days? I wanna check it out for some eelpout this weekend into early week. Thanks!
Has anyone successfully fished for Burbot/eelpout on the lower St. Croix? Based on the DNR fish survey reports it looks like my best bet would be by the Kinni narrows. The numbers there look good. My current plan is to try perpendicular to the sand bar on the north end stagnant water where it drops from 5 to 40 ft depth. I'll drill a set of holes starting in the deep and ending just short of the sandbar shallows. Then I'll progressively fish from deeper to shallower water as sunset approaches finishing up in 10-15 ft of water. I've got a couple poles rigged with glow buckshot rattle spoons and I'll buy some fatheads in Prescott to put on the trebles. If anyone has a better location on the Croix or reasons why this is a fools errand I'm all ears.
