First Trip to Cass

Recommended Posts

HateHumminbird

After hearing about all of the fishing opportunities, and being through the area a few times myself, thought we'd try Cass for a family vacation this past weekend. My wife, son, and I, along with another family, stayed at Sunset Cove Resort and had a wonderful time!

Al and John were extremely easy going, and that made our stay there pleasant. We even switched cabins upon arrival to be a bit closer to the lake, and they had no problem with it at all. As for location, it was nice being tucked away a bit in Allen's Bay when the wind kicked up, and we were a short boat away from where we did some fishing for walleyes/perch.

We found the perch to be more cooperative than the 'eyes, and only boated 3 walleyes in about 3 days of fishing. When I say "days-of-fishing" understand that my son is 1 1/2, and my buddy's son is 4. smile.gif We got the kids/wives into some larger perch by finding a pocket in the weeds no bigger than the size of a house.

The perch were really agressive near weedlines, and harassed lindy-rigs if you trolled too near, but the walleyes we did catch were trolling steep breaks with a crawler on a 6 foot snell, red-hook, no bead. This was a tip from Al, owner of Sunset Cove, who found time to get out fishing and was more than willing to share information. He sat us down, pointed out spots on the map, and put us right were he'd boated a few only hours earlier. If you end up staying there, pick his brain!

Anyway, just wanted to thank Al and John for the great time, and say thanks to Brian Jones who added some insight pre-trip. The weather and people were great, and the last day we headed to star island for some lunch and swimmming. We then came back to let the kids play at the beach.

Sounds like a great family time. Nice to see the boys learning to fish, great memories Im sure. I have two sons, one is 21 the other is 18. They started "fishing" about the time they learned to walk. We always kept it simple and had things like snoopy bobbers and matchbox cars in the boat for those slow times.I took one of my sons with me every morning I went fishing. Some days we caught fish some days we didn,t but we always had fun being out together, and often recall some of those times. Now after all those days we have great memories to look back at. Those days go by quickly,the next thing you know they will be all grown up, but then you will have fishing partners for life like I do. My advice, keep it simple when they are in the boat go for the easy stuff when they are not in the boat go for what you want. By the pic's you posted it look's like you are doing a great job. Enjoy these times!!!!

Thanks for the kind comments. Yep, it's difficult to take it easy sometimes on fishing for the bigger fish, and concentrate on them having fun. However, like you said, if I do it right I'll have a fishing partner for a lifetime.

Thanks again,

Joel

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok..I got it wired directly to the motor battery. 12.44 bolts to the plug. Good. Unit powers on like normal. All is well until I get it on the water. Only question.. since there's power going non stop to that plug. Do I risk draining the battery? I take the unit off when I trailer the boat. 12.44 volts

      I'd be surprised if the lake is entirely open by Opener. I almost needed at auger extension eight days ago when I was up there.
