Cass Lake, MN (July 5, 2024)

The bug hatch has subsided on Cass, and walleye are still gorged but continue to feed heavily, even with the nymphs out of the system. The newest threat comes in the form of slimy moss on the bottom, making Lindy rigging with sinkers and even jigging a bit tougher. The workaround is to go lighter with your jig or sinker size.

Brosdahl has been running a jig and minnow, or Northland Eye-Candy plastic on a 1/8oz Northland Tungsten Jig even in windy conditions, which has dictated the depth of walleye. Luckily, on those windy days, the fish have been sitting a little shallower at 9-10 feet, whereas when the wind lays down, those fish slide out to around 20 feet. Focus on main lake structures near deep water edges like the center humps.

Walleye are also being caught trolling weeds and weed edges in around 12 feet of water with crawlers on spinners and slow-death rigs. The same applies here for keeping your sinker off the bottom slightly while ticking through the weeds at around .8-1mph. Water temps have pushed up near 70 degrees, so the lindy rig and spinner bite will continue to accelerate with the warming water.
