I had wanted to try to get to my Sis's place S of Dixon the 3rd week of March but now it looks like we won't go wet any lines until April.

Our Cass trip is the week of June 11....so 95 days for our group.

Just 50 days till we return to Cass. I'm not too antsy but I've got the boat ready now. Can't make opening day this year, we'll be a week later.

I just checked the live web cams at BRAKE ON THE LAKE and JOES LODGE on ANDRUSIA, both show open areas of open water, shorelines the most. Seeing open water sure gets me ready to get my gear ready for June 4th.

gene----did not mean to ignore your post, but been working the last few days(earning some BLACK JACK MONEY for a raining day at the Cass casino) and have not been on the forum. Saw that Blueduck had your back and gave you the info on the web cams. Knowing you fish Dicks bay often, just wondering if you ever had a cheeseburger at the SUNSET RESORT. My group thinks its the best burger around. Also, like the great fishing in Dicks Bay early in the morning. Caught several of a variety of healthy fish there last year, including a 22 inch walleye.

No Prob....I tried those links but did not get very good results. I will try again soon.

We usually stop into Sunset for the women to use the facilities and we then will get drinks and sometimes a pizza. We got caught in Dick's in the pouring rain one time and rode it out at Sunset for about 3 hours. Some years ago I even checked into staying at Sunset but never pulled the trigger. Now our Birch Villa stay is at about 35 times and we will not change-we love it there.

We don't usually eat out much as my sis brings all the meals but thanks for that burger tip...I will remember that for this trip.

The tip I really need is how to find the fishcribs in Dick's and how to fish them!!

gene----we fished dicks bay of a morning from 8am up till 11am. as we entered dicks bay we angled to the right at about a 45 degree angle un til we reached the weedline, about 7 to 10 ft deep and anchored down and used slip bobbers with various live baits. usually 3 of us in the boat and we all used different bait at first. also fished at different depths from 8ft to 16 ft. found the fish moved around in depth during the morning. worked for us and sure was a relaxing way to catch decent amount of fish on beautiful CASS. also not alot of boat traffic either.

Well the cribs are supposedly in about 10' near Dick's Island but we have only found one once a long time ago.

Our methodology is slightly different in there than yours Indy. We hardly ever anchor. We mostly drift with mini-mites tipped or not or just with plain hooks with live bait under round red and white bobbers anywhere from near shore out to 8' deep...then go back in and do it again.

Only ran into crappies in there twice in our 35 trips but it was fun when we did.

A real mixed-bag can be had in there for sure.

Well the Spring trip to my Sister's place was kind of a bust. It was nice last Sat and Sun but fishing was slow. On Sat 3 of us spent 6 hours trying 7 spots (one of them twice) and only kept 12 gills. Then 4 of us went out Sunday but in 5 !/2 hours only kept 10 gills-and not much help from me as I only caught one fish in two days.

We had campfires Sat, Sun, Mon and Tues which was nice.

I saw 7 deer, 3 frogs, a baby toad, a woodpecker, an oriole and another bird I had never seen before. My sis and I took 3 different trail hikes so at least I got some exercise (my heart doctor will be happy to hear that!).

The weather turned bad on Monday--didn't break 50 or see sun for the next 5 days-and did not launch the boat again the rest of the week.

We came home early on Friday morning and finally now this morning I get to see sunshine.

So I'm really looking forward now to our Cass trip (in 40 days).

And we're gonna do a salmon charter out of Waukegan on May 14--hope I don't get seasick!!! LOL

Hey guys. Decided to stick my head in the door to see what was what on the Cass Forum. Good to see some of you guys are heading up in the next month or so.

Have only been fishing locally at ponds in the suburbs over the last few months...and have been watching my boys clean-up on huge largemouth bass. More big ones than I've seen in a while. Anyhow...I'm heading up to Pike Hole with my dad and boys on June 4th. Looking forward to it...and getting the boat ready now.

Hope to see some good reports!
