Northern Pike on Cass Lake

After catching my first Muskie off of a dock on Cass Lake on a 1/2 ounce spinnerbait, I figured I should be able to catch more Muskie, hopefully bigger, throwing a 1 1/2 ounce spinnerbait. Unfortunately that didn’t happen, but I did catch several Northern Pike. The biggest being this nice one, at about 30 inches.

30 in Northern

The best action I had was one morning, throwing the same spinnerbait, I caught 8 Northern. There were also a few Northern caught on one of my favorite lures, an 1/8 ounce Rooster Tail. These weren’t huge fish by any means, but were particularly fun on light tackle.


 One of the highlights of the trip was when Kayla caught this 27″ northern on one of those Rooster Tails. What made this even more exciting was the fact that Kayla had not done much fishing before this trip and it was Kayla, Deanne, Dawn and myself in the boat that day.
