Making our fall trip to Cass Lake next w/e. Anyone been there recently, that will share current conditions? water temp, water level (very low, low, average, dry?) I plan on crawlers, and minnows. Does it pay to find some leeches? What depths are you finding eyes? I'm assuming they are getting shallower? Day bite o.k., or shall I plan night trolling? Depths?

Any current info appreciated, thanks! smile.gif

A jig and redtail minnow has been the ticket for walleyes on Cass Lake during the day in 20 to 25 feet. At night, some fish are being taken with Shad Raps on top of the bars in eight to 12 feet. Deadman's Bar and Cedar Bar are good starting spots. Muskies are active during low-light periods on the bars and shallow weed areas.

Slayer, Thanks for the info.

My report:

Water temp when we got there was 69, when we left it was 64, after the rain.Seems kind of high for this time of year.

Water is low, but we were able to get every place we tried.

Found some jumbos mixed in with the bait-steelers.

Crawlers only got us small eyes and small perch.

Got some better eyes after dark trolling cranks in 9-10 ft.

Shallow reeds seemed to be empty.

Only had 2 days this time and I managed to hit the rainy w/e again frown.gif

Having a Ski tournament AND a Walleye tournament the same w/e makes for a busy LAKE confused.gif WHY does the DNR allow that the same w/e?

Always great to be up there- Love the lake!

      Hard to imagine an ice-out anytime before the month of May with that 10-day forecast and how much ice/snow still exists on the lake.  If ice out happens just prior to the opener, I do feel like that could be a good thing for the overall bite.  Let’s hope that is the outcome here and not an opener where we are ice fishing.   Remember the ice out date in 2012?  April 2nd...  Amazing to think it was ever that early!   Jeff and I will be up this weekend, retrieving our boats from winter storage and chasing some whitefish, Tullies, jumbo perch, and maybe even a crappie or two.  The bite for all species is usually really good this time of year so we’re looking forward to that.

      It's my favorite time of the year, looking at the forecast and trying to figure out when the lake will truly begin its annual change. Daytime highs will be above freezing 8 of the next 10 days with refreezing at night. Maybe 7-8 inches of snow next week, but that precipitation forecast is too far off to be accurate. It's slightly more reliable than my prediction of a hurricane hitting the lake! I do see sun forecasted for 5 of 10 days with temps above freezing. The sun is starting to get pretty strong even when air temps aren't that high. If that snow doesn't hit mid-week, I could see a portion of the snowpack melting.   I'm heading up tomorrow to *inspect* the lake in person

      Below zero lows...we are going the wrong way.  Not looking real good at the moment for an ice free opener. Things can go fast like last year with a handful of very warm days, but we better start making progress soon.

      I noticed something in the pictures of the fish in my previous post that show up on my phone but not here. The little icon in the lower right. When I touch it, up pops the email of the author of the newspaper article that the phone detected. Maybe the phone is too smart!!😜
