Minnesota Northwoods Lakes
Cass Lake, just northeast of the city of the same name, is the largest of the eight lakes that make up the Cass Lake chain of lakes. The scenery is incredible on the 15,596-acre lake, with its 26.9 miles of forested shoreline and sandy beaches. Cass offers fine populations of walleye, northern pike and perch. It is also popular with muskie anglers. The yellow perch catch has been up considerably in recent years, too, with perch reaching the 10- to 11-inch range. It’s one of the Minnesota lakes that always ends up on someone's list of great fishing places—so be sure to check out the many lakeside resorts on Cass.
