Im planning a trip for my wife and I next spring/early summer. I was wondering if some of you veterans could give me some advice on what would typically be the optimal time for Cass. Ive never fished it and would love to hit for a good trip. Also your opinions on a good place to lodge. i appreciate it, thanks guys.

Clam,

I would say your best advice is to check with Brian from First Choice Guide Service. He can punch it up and tell you when the best time would be. He has been fishing Cass for 16 years and guiding for 6 years. I would say you should book him for a day or a half day, you can also split your day and do half in the morning and half at night. That might be the ticket. I can tell you that he will put you on fish and show you how to fish Cass Lake. If you mention to him that Windy sent you, he will give you a 10% discount off his already low prices. He is a very nice young family man who really knows the lake. He also has his dad who fishes the lake and can take people out to guide. Give him a call and tell him I sent you. You won't be disappointed.

Recent years have been excellant through Mid June. Every spring is a little different depending on water depth, flow in and out of the feed lakes and water temperature.

This year we had a great trip the week after opener. Fish were everywhere and were cooperating with a jig and minnow presentation. I would suggest getting there sometime in May if you can, if not early June.

Good Luck.

Clamhead,

What species are you most likely after? Panfish, bass, walleye, or my favorite muskie? Different species are more active at different times of the year! Like Windy said, give Brian a call, he is a multi-species guide who is really in-tune with what is happening on the Cass Lake chain. Just my two cents, I go up to Cass in September after school is back in session. All species are more receptive during this period, IMO. Good luck!

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
