Headed to Cass

Recommended Posts

Hoping to find out how the fishing for eyes and perch has been on Cass. Headed up there June 24-30. Staying at Wishbone resort. Also bringing my young girls and was hoping to get them on some panfish. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey there Fireman,

Our family has been going up to Wishbone for 20 years. This is our 20th anniversary at Cass. Bill and Lois will take great care of you as will their son Ron and his wife Linda. If this is your first time up at Cass I would strongly recommend you getting in touch with Brian Jones who is on this site and book him for a half day or full day on your first day up there. We have been using Brian since he started his business 5 or 6 years ago and he and his father fish Cass non stop. They are on the lake almost every day and he will show you how to fish Cass, where to fish and what depths to fish. He is a wealth of knowledge as well as a polite and friendly young family man. Give him a call or just post on this thread, he is always talking to people on here. He will hook you up, no pun intended!

Gene,

What size boat do you have? Will be up in a few weeks and not sure if I can make it under. How is the water level going through? I have a deep V with full windshields.

My buddy and a guide both have pretty decent size boats and they make it under so I think you'll be ok.

Jperch,

What do you want to get under there for anyway. Pike has not done much, as far as I can see, for the past 5 years. Maybe Geno can shed some light on this matter. What's the dillio Geno? LOL

Can't speak for your time of yr (July/Aug), but in June all the seasonal guests at our resort (many oldtimers) spend lots of time in PikeBay. We never have done any walleye fishing in there in many years, but I also know one guide who really loves to hit Pike so I think it has lots of potential.

So much water...so little time!

Wow,

I did not realize that so many guides pound Pike. I havent found an eye there for years. What are they looking for? Perch or toothy critters?

I see more big 'eyes than toothy critters come out of Pike.

We go in for Perch and Rockies. Only went once this yr for a half-day. Got some of each but not enought to make it worth another trip. Our other boat found big gills in Allen's so we joined them instead of trying Pike again.

Another of the chat-guys hit Pike pretty hard for 'eyes and like it alot. Maybe I'll have to follow them in one day.

We ran into 'em all over the lake. They were on the feed during our trip. Good luck on yours.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.
