Gene---Like your idea of cell phone #'s so we can check with each other on fishing info. Will get my sons cell phone # soon and email it to you. Also see if the other three in my party are up for the pughole lunch. Wow only 8 weeks from now we will be fishing on Cass. In the 6 years I have had the pleasure of fishing Cass I have never tried Pike bay---how about you/had any luck on pike bay? Also our plan is to fish Andrusia and Kitchi more for Walleyes during late mornings and early evenings.{Trolling would be my choice-but 3 or 4 in the boat makes that a little hard}

I've fished Cass for 30 years. Although I've caught walleyes on Cass, we've always done better on Pikes. Its a lot smaller than Cass and easier to fish, in my opinion.

There goes the neighborhood. The new owners of Cass lake lodge, took a few years, but they jacked up the prices. The cabin we used to stay in cost 900 for the week in JUne. They redid the cabin, and now charge 1400. That is a huge increase.

That's only around a 65% increase FF. C'mon now... you live in IL... you should be used to that by now! Mad

Things being the way they are... I'm thankful for every year Frank and Gert hold on to the Pikehole.

Yea, MM, I wish they were closer to Pike's. Funny thing, I had a crew put together for a June trip. I told them, 900 bucks for the week, 150 a man. They were gung ho. Then when I told them of the price increase, add in the cost of gas, 3 backed out. Cant blame them. Last nite at my club meeting, a couple of guys expressed interest in going next year. Long way off, but it gives me a chance to see what is open in price. I have to imagine Birch villa will do the same thing. These people are going to price them selves out of the market. I can't blame them either with the price of things. I used to spend 2 weeks at Tom's, and it used to cost me close to 2400, and that was many years ago. It used to be, a fishing vacation was a cheap way to get away and have a good time, I guess those days are long gone.

Bite the bullet guys. These owners have to cover costs, if they don't make it then they will sell to developers and we will never have a place to stay. the new baby boomers have a lot of spending cash and don't mind using it.

I've been in this fishing game since 1960 or there-abouts and costs have always risen. We have to find a way to cut our costs, maybe back to camping or trailering. Smaller boats?

It ain't easy getting old!

I didn't mind cost increases so much when I was working, but now, being retired, and on a fixed income, its not as easy forking out extra cash. Thing is, when I called CLL not too long ago, the two pricey cabins were still open. Geeee I wonder why. As for selling to developers, that is what happened to Toms. Last time I was there, only half dozen lots were sold, out of dozens of them.

I know about that fixed income, I too have that problem. I don't think that the economy will bounce back soon enough for us to see the developers coming back. But our grand kids will suffer the effects of them.

23 DAYS TILL OPENER!!!

I did some fast figuring today. If 6 guys split the 1400, after taxes, around250 a man. Gas for my truck, two tanks up and back, and gas for the boat up there, at 5 bucks a gallon, 375 a man. That is 625 before we even get a line wet. Add in harbor fees, lic, food, bait, etc and topping a grand a man is right there.
