Cass Lake


Cass Lake 2

My wife Dawn, daughter Deanne, and her friend Kayla, recently stayed with Dawn’s aunt Kathy and uncle Harold on Cass Lake in Minnesota. The first night we got there Harold offered to take me out to do some trolling for Walleye. Of course I was all too happy to go. We trolled shallow running Rapalas in about 4 to 8 feet of water off of Star Island and then moved to a narrow shelf near there that ran about 4 to 5 foot deep with drop offs on both sides into 25 plus feet of water. We caught 6 Eyes on that shelf before the bite died off and we called it a night. 3 of them were nice eater size fish, between 14 and 18 inches, so we kept those and released the smaller ones. Unfortunately that was the best bite we had all week for Walleye. We did catch a few Walleye pulling crawlers and leeches, and Dawn caught the big Walleye of the trip (21″) on a crawler.
