Decent Week....Now with Pictures!!!

Recommended Posts

Commanche Jim

Got back this past Monday from Cass........would have been an unbelievable muskie trip had we landed ones that were hooked.......but unfortunately lost.

I ended up with a 49".

Brad got a 49.5" and a 35.5".

And poor Mike lost 3 fish on my boat alone that went upper 40"s to maybe low 50's on one of them......One lost due to a run under the boat to cut the line on the motor. Another one lost on a 3' high jump out of the water, and the other lost on a figure 8 on our last night (ask Brian, he was with us)...all were hooked. So that could have been 5 fish over 49".

I'll post the pics soon.

sounds like a great trip! Not asking for specific spots but was wondering if most of your action came out of Allens Bay or Cass? This year, its been out of Allens Bay for me, but no hookups.

Actually, we don't even fish Allen's Bay for some reason. Just for panfish and little guys.

All of our fish came on the main lake.

We did have alot of fun this year. It's too bad poor Mikey couldn't get one of those fish in the boat! He's been on a tough streak with losing fish.

As always, it was great to see Brian and Samantha. Somebody needs to ask Samantha about her cheesecake! Out of this world!!!! Brian put us on some walleye, so we had a few to take home with us. Overall, another wonderful week at Cass Lake!

Pics Jim was trying to attach are now attached.

What about the release pic that you took? That's the best one I think........

And, yes, the Cheesecake was outstanding.

Had it not been for the horse that ran over Sam, we could have spent more time together. Glad she's going to be okay.

Hmmmm.... So that's what those things look like. If it wasn't for you guys, I might have forgotten. It was nice seeing you guys back up here. Hopefully I'll see ya again next year. Oh, and I never did see that big girl again (yet) that I was bragging up. I thinks she's still safe and sound here in Allen's...

Hey guys. Sounds like a great trip. I was looking at that last pic and that fish looked strangely familiar! Looked through some old pics......Catch and release does work! I caught that same fish in 2004 at 47"!!!

Checking out the spots and other markings on the fish, I would have to agree... has to be the same fish. This is good news! Hopefully, Brian can help me catch the same fish next year... on spinning gear!

Good Eye Bob,

Nice pick up. I am not a muskie fanatic, I stick to the walters myself, but I would have to agree. Those look like the same fish. Nice catch for the both you and Jim and I know Brian will be glad to see that she recovered from both catches and releases. Way to show all those Twinkie fans that us boys from Illinoiz know a thing or two about catching fish!!! LOL

Hey... I might have moved from Chicago to the Twin-cities, but I am certainly not a Twinkie fan! At least I am still a south-sider over here (south suburb of Minneapolis). Eh... what does it matter anyway... I've always been more of a Cub fan. I know... blasphemy! shocked.gif

I grew up in Burbank, used to be called South Stickey. Went to Reavis, hated Oak Lawn, used to beat them up in football and they would get back at us in basketball. Small world.

115 & Pulaski? I know the owner of S & T Provisions over there. Home of the famous Pizza Kits. Small world, though I would hate to have to paint it, LOL I grew up around 81st and Austin area right next to Oak Lawn.

Yes... you definately got the adress right... small world indeed. I lived on the corner of 96th & 51st. The big Metra commuter parking lot is just across the street.

As an aside, I can say this: fishing is much better around the twin-city metro area than it is around the Chicago area. When I was I kid, the best fishing I could get was the crappy forest preserve lakes. Tampier, Maple and Saganashkee... what holes nowadays! The best fishing I found was over in the Kankakee River... of course, that was one hell of a bicycle ride from Oak Lawn (don't ask me how I know). I've caught more big fish here in 3 months than I ever did in all my years in Chi-town...

Did you ever try Heideke Lake in Morris? I have taken many walleye in the 16-19" range out of their and have a Master Angler award for a 16.5" Black Crappie. They also have muskie in there so that adds to the excitement as well as some huge stripers.

I think I posted this before... but I grew up on W. 80th Place, right off Columbus and Pulaski.

I was born in Blue Island and moved to Oak Lawn and finally over to W. 80th on the South Side. That was back in the 60's - early 70's... just went to grade school there, Daas Elementary. Born in Christ Community Hospital. I think both have been re-named.

I remember going with my cousins to Crystal Lake and also some forest preserve ponds by Glen Elleyn. Those were the days! We always made and had plenty of fun...

Went by the old house a couple years back. She was a beauty!... all 900 (sf) of her! Boy they sure take care of their homes in Chi-town compared to here. The block looked as good today as it did back when I lived there. There were even a couple of neighbors who still lived in their houses and it sure was neat to see them 30 years later!

Good Luck!

Labs,

Not sure about the old school yard but Christ Community is still the same name. I remember going to a fast food dive called Naugles across from Christ and it was open till 4 am. We used to go to their drive in with my buddies dune buggy at about 3 am, drunker than skunks! Great Macho Nacho's! Memories.....

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

      Congrats jfitz! I was in boat 85 in the big tiller Lund right behind you guys leaving the harbor. Our nice fish we had going completely disappeared on us. 
    • redlabguy
      I hope you and your dad don’t mind passing along the story of your weekend. It’s a great story and defies conventional wisdom. Congratulations! The best fishermen have skill, intuition, and a little luck on their side.

      Welcome to to Fishing Minnesota, TheEyesofanAngler. My favorite lake for bass in our area is definitely Clearwater. It takes a bit to learn the lake, but the rewards are more than worth it.  Littlerock also holds some very nice Largemouth with a few bonus smallies mixed in... I know you said lakes and ponds, but the Mississippi here in town and  the sections above the Sartell and Blanchard dams all are exelent smallmouth fisheries.  
    • leech~~
      Was it a G.Loomis Conquest Mag Bass rod with a Shimano® Calcutta Conquest reel on it?  That would be mine!

      Nice to see you back @FishandFowl! Congrats and love the pic.

      I have snorkeled on head o lakes (off our beach) and it is usually ok.   Not Hawaii clear but 5 to 10 feet visibility....  OK, maybe 10 is a stretch, but pretty good.
