We arrive June 10 this year.......only 50 days to go!
Can't wait to hit Dick's Bay, Pike Bay, Allen's Bay and so forth.
So much water, so little time.

And next weekend will be our first outing at my Sis's campground here in Illinois....I hope they have leeches early this year but if not then just soaking crawlers or waxies will have to do!

Gene--glad to see your post on this years Cass Lake trip. Our threesome will be going week of June 3rd this yearand staying at the Shoe. From the posts I have read this year seems to be a repeat of last years weather and water temps as far as can be projected at this time. Most guides are saying the extremely clear water has changed the walleye bite alittle and we shoud expect the spring weed bed to be deeper than in years past. where weeds were in 6 to 8 foot of water, they will propoply be start in 12 to 14 foot of water. They also say that fishing early morning and later in the evening is more important due to the clear water. The good news is the walleye population looks to be strong on cass. Good luck and good weather on your trip. I am sure we will both enjoy our week on Cass.

Not many of us left chatting here, huh Indy?
Glad to hear you will make the trip again...it's in our DNA for sure.

I was surprised how clear the water seemed last year.
We caught ALOT of cigars last year so hope they have grown up some by now.

We didn't get to Kitchi last year and it has been a few years since we hit Buck Lake so maybe this year---so many spots to try you know.

All I really hope is that it is not too windy or wavy....those are my least favorite days on Cass.

Best of luck.....and leave some (Rockies) for us!

Fished the Wisconsin opener last weekend and only caught 3 eyes in 3 days. Cold/windy and fish were deep.

Headed to Cass Lake for the annual trip the week of Memorial Day. Water temps and walleyes should be cooperating better by then. Will post report upon return.

I have to chime in here just to let all my Cass lake Crazies know we're still around and looking forward to this years trip to Pike Hole in late August & Sept. Still doing 4 weeks so we really enjoy being a little more casual then some folks about our fishing and are able to focus on the "good days". Cloudy, a little overcast or a little wind is fine and we usually do well on those days but I'm with Gene on the Cass lake wind that can blow up, it seems like in minutes, and its a scramble to get off before out 17' Tracker becomes a problem. We still do a lot of LMB fishing but lately have been doing much more Walleye fishing.......and eating like a gourmet. Still chasing Muskies also and that's a passion of mine. All in all we have a longer wait to get up there then some of you but still the enthusiasm is strong. God Bless, stay safe all and tight lines and great success for all of you. Bob in Utah.

Anyone out there getting any info on how the fishing is going so far this year on Cass. UNDERSTOOD that opener was real good weather, but have not heard anything since. My group of 3 will be on Cass for the week of june 3rd. Will post as early as posible when we get home. Wish everyone going to Cass a safe and enjoyable trip. Mr Thompson, I wish I was coming up for 4 weeks.
