Well was out for one last evening of walleye fishing and it was a night that shall be remembered for awhile..

The owner of WriteOutdoors and myself were on Cass Lake and the other group of 4 fisherman where on Pike Bay. I set-up the group on Pike Bay in 14 feet of water and they were using Spot tails and Waxies. They caught 13 walleyes with the biggest being 19" and many, many perch...

We went over to Cass and set-up in 17 feet of water on a inside corner and caught 4 Keeper perch and 17 walleyes. A lot of 12-14 inchers and a few a bit bigger. All that action was in 2.5 hours of fishing.

The perch were hitting the shinners on Northland's Eyedroppers and the Walleyes liked the Buckshot rattle spoon tipped with the head of a FATHEAD...

The best news is WE GOT SOME SNOW!!!!!!!!!!! About time...

Around 8-12 inches in the Bemidji area.. Cass seemed to get around the same amount...

Thanks for the report Beef, sounds like fishing was pretty good.

Real happy to hear you finally got some snow, not wishing you any bad but I hope the area gets hit a few more times like this one before spring. The area really needs the precip. I was beginning to think my boat would not see the light of day in 2007!

THANKS for the great time fishing Bryan! We caught a mess in what were some of the toughest weather conditions one could ask to face! I have the photos posted on my website and you and I need to connect Tuesday night to record the latest WriteOutdoors podcast! I'm teaching a class at Joe's that night so if we can talk late that's cool with me!

I'll throw my guess in at 9". I'm hope I'm shy by about 7" as we could sure use the moisture. Nice thing about snow this time of year is that it's pretty wet.

Beef, it looks like you had a good time on the lake over the weekend! Nice fish. I went up to LOW and caught about 20 over the weekend, with the biggest at 19". Plus, one tulibee . . .

I'll guess 7", but hoping for more.

I'm looking at a Lund 2025 right now - going to be a little harder to get in and out of the area lakes than my Alumacraft 165 especially with the way things are now...

Ok--so how much snow did you guys end up with? I always look but the TV news never shows the totals for out state mad.gif especially up north unless its really news worthy. Where I live in south central mn. we had 12-14". Moved snow 3 times to keep ahead of it! smirk.gif

At the Beef Weather Service Station In Bemidji, I had officially 6.5 inches of snow.... The thing that surprised me the most is how high snow drifts can go... I spent a good three hours plowing them down....

Hoping to hit the lake today to see what kind of shape the lakes are in for driving around in a truck.... I have a feeling I could still get where I want, but the drifts will be the factor of if I get there or not....

This snow wasn't as easy to measure as the first. When I went out Friday morning I could barely get out the door - the snow was up to my waist. However, it hadn't snowed much that night - the drifts were due to the wind. Had to plow again Saturday, again primarily due to the wind. I'd say 8" here. Would've liked more snow and less wind.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
    • Wakemup
      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      I have to agree, always enjoy your videos Curt. Fun to see what is happening even from the southern part of the state...Keep em coming...

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!
    • Raven77
      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
