Cass Lake Info for Week of July 21st

Recommended Posts

Windy City Walleye Hunter

Hey Guys,

I hope most of you will check this thread before you head out. I know there are a few of us who will be up in Cass this week and next and I thought we could give a little info that might make it possible to run into each other while we are up there. I will start the info thread:

I will be at Wishbone Resort from July 21st thru Aug 3rd. I have a red Lund Alaskan with a 40 hp Merc 4 stroke. I am a big fisherman, going about 6 foot 2 with a beard, glasses and carrying about 350 Lbs of ballast in the boat. You can usually find me on Deadmans Bar most days at one time or another though I do hit O'Neils Point and other parts of the lake on a day to day basis. Give me a shout if you see me on the water.

I'll be at my cabin this weekend and next. It's by Break on the Lake's lodge.

Red and White Triton. I'll be out trolling Buck or Deadman's or Windigo this weekend and probably next. I do mostly shad rappin' and spend the days with the family.

Good Luck!

Don't worry about Deadmans's.... there's no fish there anyhow. grin.gif

It's about dead center of the main basin, north half of Cass. Maybe a little closer to the NE quarter of the lake? Easy to spot on a lake map. Probably renamed more recently, but it's on of the larger mid-lake bars that runs north to south. Got some really deep water on it's northern and western edge, with a few good turns/contours as well. Hard to miss once you're on it. Good luck!

I will be there on a short trip... July 22-25. I will likely have the smallest boat out of the bunch of you all- 14' blue & white AMF Crestliner w/ 9.9 Johnson with Minnesota tags. As you can guess, you will not likely find me out in the middle of the main lake most of the time (unless it's calm). I will likely be around Star Island, Buck, Windigo, Pughole and various other "niche" spots. If any of you see my boat floundering in some whitecaps, call the Coastguard for me...

I haven't been on the forums here for awhile, but since I'm heading up to Cass tomorrow morning, I figured I should check in. I'll be up all week at Break on the Lake with my parents, brothers, and grandfather. We have a little 15' Skeeter with a Johnson 60HP.

Feel free to say hello if you cross my path! And for anyone staying at Break, if you're going to the dinner at the lodge tomorrow night, I'll be wearing a White Sox hat...

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.

      Oh ok! Was going to say I found a ice fishing rod  out on pearl lake

      For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!

      Before hitting the water for the first time this spring, boaters should ensure their boats, equipment and safety items are in legal and proper working order, the Department of Natural Resources said. They should also review regulations in the 2018 Minnesota Boating Guide or at the boat and water regulations page.   “With this year’s late ice-out, boaters are especially anxious to get on the water and start enjoying the boating season,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator. “After waiting all winter to get back on the water, no one wants to break down, get a ticket or have a safety emergency.” In addition to making sure boats are equipped with required safety items, boaters should take extra precautions during the cold-water season, when more than 30 percent of Minnesota’s boating fatalities occur. While children younger than 10 years old must wear life jackets while aboard watercraft that are underway (i.e., not tied to a dock or anchored for swimming), boat and water safety officials recommend all boaters wear life jackets anytime they’re on cold water, no matter their age. “Wearing a life jacket is an important part of staying safe when the water is cold during the spring,” Dugan said. “In the event of an unexpected fall or capsizing, having a life jacket on can make all the difference.” Adult boaters who are resistant to wearing a typical life jacket should consider inflatable styles designed to make preventive use more convenient and comfortable. Before the season’s first launch, boaters should verify their motorboats are equipped with the following: U.S. Coast Guard-approved wearable life jackets for each person on board. Type IV throwable flotation device on boats 16 feet or longer. Horn or whistle. Type B U.S. Coast Guard-approved fire extinguisher. Navigation lights in working order. Valid boat registration, with numbers visible. Marine carbon monoxide detector in some boats. Watercraft can be registered in person at any deputy registrar of motor vehicles or at the DNR License Center in St. Paul. Registrations are good for three calendar years. Renewals can be done in person or online on the licenses and vehicle registration page. More details, including boating safety tips and new laws, (among them Sophia’s Law and information on watercraft operator permit requirements) can be found in the boating guide at the boat and water regulations page.

      Oh oh, sounds like work. Better than work in the office any day though. Thanks for getting back. Let you know how it goes this weekend.

      Ely Lake is tough. I don't have much experience fishing it, but everything I've heard about it is weedlines are key.

      I was an intern for the DNR one summer many years ago and I rented out a large fish house as my residence it at Hunters Point Resort.  It was more like a small, one room cabin actually.  There was obviously no running water but there was a shower/bathroom complex a short walk from my door.  I had propane power so I could use that for cooking and it had electricity via an extension cord provided by the resort.  I paid a flat monthly fee to stay there.  The bar/restaurant was a short walk too so I spent many nights bellied up there drinking beer.  The one thing that I will advise to you on this subject is to outfit it with some air conditioning.  Those things are designed to be outside in the winter and stay warm so if its 70 outside, its 80 in there.  They turn into a friggin' oven.  I put a 12,000 BTU AC unit in mine and turned that sucker into a meat locker.  Lots of other people at the resort used their own winter houses as a weekend cabin there, plus there was a lot of RV's parked there too.

      I'm not sure why rivers are so over looked here.  Its probably because we have so many lake options.  Plus some of these stretches of the river are quite shallow/rocky so I think that turns people off about launching a sizable boat.
