So many spots to try, so much water, too little time.
First, get a HotSpots map and the Crazies would love to help.

Where you stayin?

That is really a tough question to answer. So much depends on the weather. If I were you, like gene said, get a map, and then try Turtle bar, Cedar bar, and Deadmans bar. All good starting spots.

Because you're staying at Marclay, try Stony Point. there are two bars, one runing east & west and One running north & south. Allen's Bay is also a good bet, several bars there. A map is a great investment.

Most maps of Cass Lake show Stony point and Marclay.
There should be about 4 foot of space between the water and the railroad bridge but maybe only 12 inches of water at the Pike Bay end of the creek.

Boy, this question opens a whole Pandora's box of opinions. My favorite is a 1/4 jig and shinner. Yet, other guys here swear by crawlers, and other guys swear by leeches. The guy that taught me how to fish Cass was Tom the owner of Tom's resort. First rule was, jig and shiner only. Second rule was, we don't fish before 9am, and we are off the water by 3 pm. Every time he took us out, we limited out with eyes and northerns. He knew what he was doing. RIP Tom. We miss you.

You should be able to make it into Pike's Bay. When youlook at the map, you will see what looks like a finger pointing at you. Hit that spot, it is good.

You don't have to go real far for one spot I use to hit often. Cross the lake or what looks like an old channel to the other side. As you are looking at the Island go to your left, to the last point that comes out towards the narrows to go around Star Island. Fish the last point with a Jumbo Leech, in about 18 feet of water. Morning is the best time. As you go around this point it will get shallow towards the narrows, turn around at that point and make another run back. This is only about a two minute boat ride from MP.

Also, go through the Narrows, bare to your right and follow the shoreline drop off all the way down about one mile. It will make a very hard right and left turn, this is a great pocket inside those turns for early walleyes. The good spot only is for about 50 yards where the dropoff turns dramtically. Same thing, fish a Jumbo Leech scrapping the bottom.

If Big Mike, from the western suburbs of Chicago is at Marclay's, please tell him I said hello.

Good luck

Col Ron
