Mark,

Wind is baaaaaad.
But you're right: you couldn't beat the unseasonably warm temps.
Glad you got some fish at least...a decent size Musky for sure, some nice Pike and a big LMB too.

Can't wait for pics....

Nice. Is that a spotted or a tiger?

Leech Lake strain (spotted). I've seen all sorts of variations on their color pattern. The one from this fall shows the spots sorta bleeding into each other. Seems like that happens more the bigger they get. But the smaller, younger fish have really cool distinct spots. Almost like a leopard. This is a mid 30s fish I caught a few years ago on the same lake. And look at that... a different GUINNESS hat! I see a theme emerging....

Ahhhh....summer in October.

Real nice fishy...definitely worthy of the pic.

So you were'nt wearing your Cass Lake Crazies hat....must mean you weren't on Cass.
(But I do know that any beer-related theme is a good theme).

Hey geno. We hit Cass for two days. Actually fished Kitchi, main lake Cass, Allen's Bay, and Andrusia. Saw some fish, had follows/hits from a few. None in the boat. But when the BIG winds rolled in on day two... we decided to make the move to Little Wolf. Little more manageable there boat-wise.

Stayed at Break on the Lake though. Great place to stay in the fall. 35$ a guy a night if you have three or more guys. Big A frames overlooking the lake. Hard to beat.

I always thought Little Wolf was an LMB fishery....not a Musky haven.

On Cass next time, you gotta try the trip over to the Kettle (between Strawberry Point and Stony Point, closer to Strawberry).
And did you try casting around the Potato Islands at all?

Andrusia? The boat trip alone into there is worth it I know.

Little Wolf has some excellent LMB fishing. And some good walleye fishing too. Can catch some good pike in there with regularity as well. Musky fishing is pretty decent there though. Not quite what it used to be years ago. Word got out that it was a good "action" lake... and a lot of people have been hitting it for about 10 years now. The action has definitely lessened. But its a really small lake (better for the wind!) and i've fished it enough to know some good areas. There are probably 20 other lakes like it within 20 minutes of Cass though. That's why I love that area.
