Ok...my wife and I were on Cass friday and saturday nights from 6-10 and only pulled on eye. Is fishing just a lot harder than I think or has it been so long that I forgot!!! We trolled raps on the breaks from aboout 10-18 feet. And got nothing. I noticed on the GPS that our speed was about 2.8 mph. I wonder if that may be too fast. I have learned that Cass will make a master troller out of you. I had my hands full trying to stay on the break. One minute 7 feet the next minute 35 feet. Very challenging, I'm convincing the wife I need a kicker to aid in this. Was it just a hard evening for everyone...please say yes! We'll be back up this weekend as the "family" cabin is slowly (do-it-yourself) is coming along!! Although no fish..it was still a great evening on the lake. Very fun lake to fish with all the structure!!

I was on Cass on Friday with three other guys and between all of us only got 3 walleyes, all slot fish and one jumbo Perch. One guy in our group had a 48 inch muskie up to the back of the boat but it dissapeared and never returned! I took the goose egg myself and Winni was just horrible for us on Saturday with very little to no wind .... the walleyes were holding tight to the bottom and wouldn't consider opening their mouths. I think we should have spent more time on both lakes after the sun went down.

I know summer fishing can be good, but I would never bank on it myself and would be happy getting 3.

Question: what did you mean in your post by "slot fish"?

Question2: where were you mostly fishing at? (I don't want to make the same mistake-nyuk, nyuk)

Hey Geno, I had Winni on the mind when I said "Slot fish" but we got a 14, 15 and 16 inch fish. two were caught in Allens Bay between the Potato islands on the south weedline going back and forth by those reeds in about 14 ft water and another was caught in the NE side of the lake on a deeper weedline. (exact spot unkown as I was a ways away from my buddy Shorelunch when he landed it) We got str8 skunked on all of the humps and we tried alot of them! I was dissapointed we got only one jumbo perch off of North cedar bar! It looks like a great place to fish... we should have stayed out later than 9:00 PM. We did get a 48' (approx size) Muskie to the side of the boat in Allens Bay on what I call the boomerang... over towards Lake Andrusia... we worked all around this area and got the sighting by the reeds to the east of the "Boomerang" I hope this helps!

Kinda thought you had Winni on the brain there. Those are nice ones anywhere for sure.

Never fished the Boomerang but know about it and between the islands would be a spot I would try for Pike. We have lucked into a few W over there too. Never fished N Cedar but have heard it can be quite good over there too.

So much water, so little time.

      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.🙏
