Grouch---I realize you fish on "opener" week but was wondering what areas of cass do you usually start fishing, and what depth is a normal place to start looking for walleyes? Also, do you fish Andrusia at all when you are up there on opener? Not trying to steal your favorite spots since I have never been up there that early in the season--just wondering how much different 2 or 3 weeks makes on location and depth on what would be considered a normal year. Also I look forward to your report each year when you get home. GOODLUCK THIS YEAR, HOPE ITS ONE TO REMEMBER.

We generally fish the river mouths and the opening of the smaller lakes. At times we have gone far up the Mississippi and the Turtle to find the walleyes. Our favorite choice on the lake is North Cedar Bar.
I have fished Andrusia a few times but prefer to fish the big lake.
It all depends on the weather and when the walleyes spawned. Two or three weeks can make a huge difference in location. If we can find the walleye we also fish nearby for perch.
the close opener is to ice out the closer the fish will be to shallow water.
We are only there for a week so we fish long hours and every day. No rest for the wicked!!

"No rest for the wicked"??? Now that's the first true thing you ever wrote about yourself on here Grouch....LOL.
-----------
74 more days to go for our group.

We try to plan one day in Kitchi for snakers and one day in Pike's Bay for Gills and one day doing some Perchi' somewhere.
But on most days on our trip in June we are typically chasing Pannies in Allen's Bay by 9am then fish all morning and maybe start scouting other spots near the Potato Islands or over in Dick's till about 5 then in for supper then back out from 7 till 10 trying for 'eyes then in to clean fish until 1am then a few (more) beers then some zzz's and get up and do it all over again the next day. Our favorite saying: "Sleep is overrated on vacation".

Our second favorite saying is "We are eating like Kings".
Breakfast is up to each individual--usually cereal and/or PopTarts. We take sack lunches out with us for in the boat during the day. And dinners are brought frozen from home and cook in the Crock Pot all day in the cabin while we are out fishing. Chili one night, Pulled Pork Sandwiches another, Homemade chicken soup, a type of Ghoulash casserole, boiled Polish Sausage sandwich one night, a fishfry night, and leftovers or burgers on Friday are the usual weekly menu for our group.

We have the itch and already have plans to open my Sis's trailer near Dixon, IL the week of April 20. And if the weather cooperates I'll be wetting a line that week too.

I LOVE SPRING FEVER!


Here's hoping the weather cooperates on everyone's trip this yr.

For all the fishermen who "love cass lake------just wanted to make sure everyone knows that Joes Lodge on andrusia has a 24 hour WEB CAM on their internet site. I realize most if not all of you probably know this but I never saw in mentioned on any posts I've read. I FIND IT nice to pull up the cam picture to see the weather and conditions of the lake at any time, exspecially the few weeks ahead of our week on Cass.

Really like fishing Cass in LATE September. If the weather has turned chilly the fish start to school.

I just read where FROGGYS bait shop in cass lake has went out of business as of 2 weeks ago. I was sorry to see that because I always got my fishing license there first thing on my way thru town. Not many local bait shops left around the lake. Looks like I better get my license on the internet this year.

Going twice this year. June 6 -13 with dad and boys, and Oct 21 - 25 with some buddies. Looking forward to both equally, but I better get my sh!t together and start preparing for the June trip. It'll be here before I know it! Shocked

Too bad to hear about Froggy's, if they actually closed. Closest place for bait is the Scenic Store in Pennington, or one of the couple places still open in Bemidji (since they closed Blue Water). Must be a sign of the times. Except for actual live bait...I'm guessing more and more guys are buying their gear on-line. Hard for small privately owned shops to compete on price.
