Lake Bemidji?

10 posts in this topic

Any tips guys? I go to the university up here, and some time in the near future I'd like to chase some ski's. Especially because some of my friends of the opposite gender want to come with too, so I'd obviously really appreciate any and all information/tips/tricks you guys have. I'll post this in the Bemidji forum too, but this forum gets more traffic. Thanks guys!

I went to school up there for a few years, too bad I didn't muskie fish specifically then. I had a few of them bite me off though. I'd try the point in the park right by the school there, but watch out for crazy drunk jeep drivers putting their car in the lake at 2am!!!

Also, IIRC, the west side is known as muskie alley or something...I might have that wrong though.

Lake Bemidji has been a favorite lake for me to hit but don't get out there as much as before.

I like to fish the rocks, point as mentioned, reeds pretty much everywhere and unknown spots will hold fish. Get a lakemaster map and you can see different things and will help you out. My go to bait was the 9" jake in natural colors and small size bucktails. Good Luck

Concentrate on the North End (primarily north of diamond bar. The Bull Rushes should hold some fish a little south east of Diamond Bar as well as well as the bull rushes on the west side. Spinnerbaits and Boogermans should be good. Being new to the lake, concentrate on the west side like mentioned above. The NE corner holds some fish as well. And I would make sure to fish the Rock Pile in the middle of the north basin at sun up and sun down for sure and there is no reason why you shouldn't see some fish durring the day too.

Throw the big stuff, the bigger the better right now.

Also, go into Bluewater and talk to Mark. Great guy that will set you up with what you need.

Get ready to see some BIG fish!

Good Luck

ya, stuck in class. 7 more weeks but it's not so bad. They are putting me up in the Hilton and giving me a pretty good expence account so I think I'll survive. I plan on fishing Leech Sat and Sun and I am really looking forward to it. I don't know what the weather is calling for but it should be good. You guys comming up north this weekend?

Not this one but 4 days over MEA - kids off school. Think you can smuggle a few new baits in under the expense account, you know, things you just had to have? Good luck...

Ha, I will tell them that Thorne Bros is a steakhouse and a double cowgirl is a really big steak! Not a bad idea.

    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?  
    • Right.  Sometimes Obama wasn't Progressive enough.  Bernie was more your speed. 
    • This is America.  We have computers and printers.  You can print it and frame it and hang it on your wall.  Nothing stopping you.   In fact Costco will print it on Canvas for you.     Please, post a picture of your office with it framed on the wall.
