Gettin' a little antsy, there, Joe?

My buddy and his son spend a month in Cass and have not fished much this week due to wind and rain and cold. The longer it takes the weather to break, the better our chances for a good trip when we get there. I'm about 3 weeks ahead of you and I'm antsy too.

Best bite has been in the evening for me...too bad my clients didn't want to hit it! Cranks and crawler rigs working the best...13-19 feet of water.

Don't worry, Brian, I'll be bringing the good weather with me in 2 weeks. But keep locating them until I get there. See you and the rest of the FM crew then. We'll touch base again before I get there.

Brian, Looks like the weather may stabilize some just in time for us next weekend. Thats the good news! The bad news is I banged my knee so I can't get around so good, the kids will have to do all the work. I guess there is a silver lining in every cloud. I was wondering about one report I read about Cass maybe being down a little bit in better keeper sizes this year, but there are lots of fish in the 12-14 range. You noticing any difference from normal?

just got back yesterday limited out on walleyes on friday and got our limit of crappies on sat. fishing was great and the crappie weather we had made the fishing possible the sun came out on sun and the fish just spoked to easaly the clouds and rain and wind made great cover and made the awsome fishiing possible.

Just got back to Las Vegas after spending the weekend on Cass. I concur with Mr. Jones, best bite for bigger fish was trolling raps at night. Picked up fish from 14" up to a nice 24" fish that weighed in at 6lbs. She wasn't too happy with us as she splashed us pretty good when we released her. LOTS of 12 to 14 inch fish. Just wasn't ready to harvest those smaller ones so we kept about 7 fish. Pike weren't as active as I had hoped....Pike Bay was slow the day we spent there. Jig and minnow presentation was good in 15 to 25 feet during the day on Cass.

I have been going to Cass for 35 yrs and have only caught crappie a couple times! I was thinking Kitchi or Buck, but wasn't for sure. We will be up there this weekend and was hoping for some good weather(doesn't look great as of right now).

I like to go to Pike Bay because we seem to always have action for the kids.

Thanks for the info!!

great plan but if it is crappy weather that makes it beter because they are easly spooked right now. we caught them on sat with the wind and the clouds. but went back out on sun in the calm and sunny and with cass being so clear the fish just spooked i was using my electric trolling moter and they still spooked they came back but soon as i caught one they all spoked and left and no more came back. so if u do have bad weather dont let it get u down.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.

      The creek is still very high and dirty. Prespawn smallies don't seem to mind😁 Morning bite has been very consistent this last week.

      Any new reports from this past weekend?  Heading up Thursday for a long Memorial Day weekend. Looking for a place to start. Going out of Bayview RV resort. First year fishing vermilion.

      Looks like your neighbors old pontoon is in some trouble, only a couple inches of the motor is above the water.

      Nice fish, but sad for the property owners.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing with good numbers of fish and some big walleyes and pike caught as well. Most anglers are finding walleyes vertical jigging.  A jig and emerald shiner or fathead did the trick.  With the naturally "stained" waters of LOW, gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of these colors works well. Some anglers catching good numbers of walleyes trolling crankbaits over shallow sand, 5 - 12' of water.  Regardless of what technique, a lot of good fish on shallow sand this week. Walleyes are being caught in 3 - 31 feet of water.  Some walleyes are still spawning while others are well past that point.  Different things are happening depending upon what part of the lake, bay or river you are fishing.  A mixed bag for walleye anglers including walleyes, sauger, pike, perch, and sturgeon.   On the Rainy River...   The river has a lot of current with the dam wide open and high water levels.    Typical spots in the main channel are still tough to fish due to high current.  Finding current breaks adjacent to shorelines or the mouth of bays has been productive for those fishing the river.  Once you find fish, there are normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig continues.  Fish are being found in various depths from 5' -  30'.  Shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats are producing fish. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  Trolling crankbaits over 5' - 12' over shallow flats or sand has been productive. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      We will be up for our yearly trip June 4-11.  Just seeing if it's the usual baits so far fishing.  Anyone bobber fishing?  Lindy rig?  I'm assuming the water is told cold at this point for Leeches. Thank fellas.

      I spent last week on Kabetogama and the conditions are hard to believe. Water keeps rising. The forecast was for another foot rise. We stay at Northern Lights Resort and they went over and above for the guests. Built bridges to the floating docks! Fishing was amazing! Hard to catch small enough fish to keep! People up there are battling to protect and save what they can.

      I'm not getting any good reports on the lake conditions there. Friends on Ash River have water in their cabin. Hope all losses are at a minimum.🙏
