How good is cass in late september/early october. I'm looking to come up quite frequently to "stock" the fridge for the winter. Plus what a beautifull time to be up there. Do most fish move into shallows during the day when temps begin dropping? Or is there a magical temperature that sets them into their fall/winter migration.

Thanks

Fished Cass for close to 30 years now, but only in June. A couple of years ago we tried a Sept trip. The week started out with the A/C on in the cabin, and ended up with the heat on. That big of a change. The fishing was at best marginal. One of our guys hired Brian for two days for musky, and didn't even see one. They did get some northerns. Almost every eye we got was small. One day we boated 24 the biggest was 14 inches. I guess what I am trying to say, is it is hit or miss at that time of the year. Good luck

ffishman,

Was the guy from your group that I took out named Mike? Did he have long blond hair? I think an older gentlemen also went with for part of the trip?

You got it Brian, that was Mike. You even took him out for free the last day, still no luck, but that was a nice gesture on your part. LIke I said, I believe the weather had a lot to do with fishing that week. Fishing in June is usually a lot more consistant. I have heard people saying that in the fall they killed them, but the weather was perfect. Thats why they call it fishing and not catching

ffishman,

Just wanted to clear up the results you gave for my trips with Mike and his friend. The older gentleman actually lost a small muskie early in the trip and then later said he had a large fish on that he felt was a muskie...I only saw the boil but it was large. He gave me a very old lure or two from his collection and a business card for his collecting hobby. One evening he was throwing this very old lure that looked like it would fall apart if a good fish hit and I think Mike was throwing one of the Cass Lake Bullets I had and he had a very big fish just miss it!

Thats why Pete M. wrote the book Muskies Suck I guess. Do you still hang out with those two? Tell them I say Hi if you do.

Hey Brian, I think you misunderstood what I was trying to say. By no means was I trying to imply that your guide service was not top notch. If it came out that way, I'm sorry about that. I was trying to point out how unpredictable the weather can be at that time of the year, and how it can screw up fishing. As for Mike and John, yea I still see them a lot, we are in the same fishing club. I'll tell them you said hello. As for the near misses, when they came in they didn't really talk about that, only said they didn't get any in the boat. AGain, sorry for any misunderstanding.

Fall and spring are definitely the times to be out on Cass. Probably the best times of the year, I never have had brian for a guide but i've heard great things, get out there and hit it hard, especially if your looking for the trophy musky pike or walleye, this is when they get big.

ffishman,

I understood what you were talking about with the weather and I remember it being a nasty cold front then. Just wasn't sure if you were talking about the same guys I was thinking. Thanks for saying Hi to them, they were both vary nice gentlemen that I would enjoy being on the water with any day!

Yea, the weather that week really took a turn for the worst. The day I was out fishing with Mike(long hair) we fished in the heaviest rain I have ever fished in. Thank God for bilge pumps!

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.  
    • Muskies
      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
