I wanted to rub this into all those Sox fans on the Cass Lake board, but I decided to do this with class and tact,(unlike some Sox fans over their)and post this in it's proper thread.
Get the brooms out fellow Cub fans !! Sweep em back to 35th and Shields where they belong.

Hey Walleyediver,
Do you still have that broom the Cubbies used on my beloved or did you sell it to the Brew Crew for a new fishing rod??? Payback is a mother, not that the Sox are doing any better but we don't have a 100 million dollar payroll and the two best pitchers in baseball since Cy Young and Sandy Koufax. Cardinals are clicking, sure is going to be a long season on the north side. Notice I did not talk about fishing on this thread, wouldn't want to confuse the two like all those other low class Sox fans I heard about.
It might be...It could be...It is...A sweep by the Brew Crew. Two runs in three games???
Come on Slammy Steriod, start juicing again before it's too late!!!

Way to Go Mudcutter,
That is one of my favorite sayings over the years. Last year there was this little old lady outside of Sox Park and she had a sign with this saying on it and I clipped it out and it is on my office door along with my plaque that reads, "My two favorite baseball teams are the White Sox...And whoever is playing the Cubs!" GO SOX, Curt

Hey Commanche,
It's been mighty quite up north these days, huh? Not too much chirping going on just some good old fashion sweeping, tomorrow completes the double dip. Sox are only half game out and two games in hand, things are looking up. Maggs is back and Freddie will settle into a groove. I hate to break the code but can we talk a little fishing over here. I am going up to Cass on July 24th and might be interested in doing lunch over in Mokena or Orland Park to trade Hot Spots maps and talk some Cass Lake fishin. I go primarily after walleye, then perch and Northerns are accidental. This year I am going to try a half day here and there and try my luck at muskie though I am in no way a muskie man. I went out for a half day with Dances With Fish ( Bob Gray ) who is a regular on this web site and he got the bug planted in me when he landed about a 43 incher, it was a pig. When do you go to Cass, where do you stay and what do you fish for. How many years have you been going? We have been going for 17 years and we stay at Wishbone. Looking forward to hearing back from you but until then, STRETCH......YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD....YES! Go Sox (and whoever is playing the Cubs) Curt

Windy,
I'll be going to Leech on the 24 with the family. We are planning a day trip to Cass so I can get ready for the PMTT. I would be happy to hook up in the next week or so. Tuesday and Friday of this week are out. What are the rest of the days looking like for you?
We've been going since 1982, taking one year off. Used to stay at Tom's, and started goin to Leech last year with the family. Did the camping thing for a couple years with the boys.
Fished for anything growing up, but for 7 years now, mostly muskie. In our group (actually, between 4 guys), we've caught 5 50"+, with another 4 over 48" over the past few years and countless smaller ones.

Hey Mudcutter, just to bring you up to date, the Cubs did play for the NL Championship last year. So your little anaology is frankly quite useless, as are most folks from Iowa.
Larry
PS How is that pro baseball team doing from that part of the country ??

Mudcutter RULES!
Hey WalleyeDiver,
All of your idles went thru Iowa to get to your favorite team. DID YOU KNOW YOUR TRIPLE A FARM TEAM IS IN DES MOINES?
That's Iowa, my friend.
So you make a valid point about the lack of pro ball in Iowa.......there is NONE! Good luck to your team....they're old and the young ones are always hurt.

      Great info @Graham Smith   Thanks.

      Try lakes with motor restrictions. Fewer recreational boaters to dodge, and less fishing pressure as well. Here is a list of waterbodies in the state with restrictions by county: https://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/boatwater/local_regs.pdf

      I’ve fished this lake one week a year, at the end of July, for the last 8 years.  We stay at Timber Bay Lodge and I have fished the SE part of the lake, all the way up to the Stony River. I almost solely target walleye.  I say almost because I will fish bass or northern at times for fun.  I’ve yet to target crappie on this lake and this year will be the first. I’ve caught a handful of big crappie by accident on this lake.  I’ve heard they are in there.  For walleye, I’ve typically used Lindy Rig with crawler or leech, and Jighead with a minnow. I typically tie a 3-5 ft leader, red hook, gold bead, 1/4 oz weight. If the wind and waves kick up I’ll use 1/2 ounce weight.   I’ve often used a worm harness with gold or silver spinner too.  Sometime I’ll throw crankbaits and that can the ticket. If I’m covering a flat I’ll use lindys or harnesses, if I’m hitting specific points and structures I’ll use a jighead.  I’ve had the best luck in 8ft to 14ft but every year is different.  For the record, I’ve never caught a huge walleye on this lake.  I’ve caught countless eaters.  But I’ve yet to connect with many big ones.  I know they are in there.  It seems like each year the fish are hot in June to mid July.  Since we go at the end of July, we can be in the doldrums of Summer, so perhaps this is why Ive missed many big ones.  There’s also a chance I’m targeting the wrong areas.  Who knows.  As for areas, I’ll typically target shorelines that have been hit by the wind for the day, or previous day.  If I work an area for 15-20 min with little results, move on.  I’ve experienced the fish stacking up on very specific points before too.  If a point is holding fish, don’t be afraid to drift a small area and use your motor to return to the starting point, over and over.  I’ve done this many times and limited out in an hour.  One thing I have noticed is that the walleyes don’t seem to be active in the early morning.  In fact, the best action I’ve seen has been 10am to 1pm, and 6pm to 9pm.  I’ve never fished after dark. I have fished as early as 6 am on this lake and do not connect with the walleyes.  I’m guessing it’s due to the dark water and low visibility.  I hope this has been helpful and welcome other advice.  If anyone would like to add or refute, feel free.  This has been my experience on this lake and I’m welcome to hear other tactics,  I’d also love some advice on the crappie.  Where and what time of day?  Best of luck on your trip.

      We're heading to the East side of Rainy, boat camping next week. Just curious if the walleyes are on the reefs and what baits are being used? Any updates would be appreciated.
    • Trump 2020
      Muskies-  Any advice on a good place to stay on Rainy? Was supposed to stay on Canadian side this week and obviously didn’t go. So now I am trying to put together a quick trip with my Dad on MN side maybe later this month instead...
    • james_walleye
      It was in about 12 feet of water I estimated. 100 feet or so I'd say off shore. I kick myself....I wanted to get the pic so bad I didn't hit a waypoint. But it would be easy to find again.

      How close to comet island was it?  If I remember the story correctly comet island was named after one of Aronsons early motor boats named “comet” hit the island and sank.  I think the story was in one of the lake vermilion history books the timberjay published about 15 years ago.
    • james_walleye
      Just off the west side of comet

      I was able to talk to my Father about his days at LOTW.  He and my Mother caught 12 walleyes in 3 days over 27 inches, plus numerous other smaller ones.  Didn't catch a single sauger.  They caught them jigging, spinner rigs, and on lead core.  Lead core seemed to catch the bigger fish as they use bigger crank baits that weed out the smaller fish.  It was calm all 5 days so they could get to and fish just about anywhere they wanted to without any difficulty.

      Vermilion is a "no brainer" when it comes to smallmouth. You'll be fine in early August. What is your favorite way ti catch bass? Start with that and work from there. One of my favorites is a white/pearl fluke...they eat those things up.
