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.

    • Trump already signalling willingness to work with Democrats in order to bypass House conservatives....     http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/national-international/Trump-Attacks-Conservative-Lawmakers-Over-Health-Bill-417117223.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_BAYBrand   So now we have a supposedly extreme right-leaning Republican president cozying up to Democrats?   What would Uncle Ben think?....            
    • In order to determine which direction to go with healthcare, one fundamental question must be answered.  If an American walks in to a hospital with a sick child or with some sickness themselves and has a treatable medical condition, should a provider have a right to refuse service to that person or their child based on ability to pay?  We cannot have a true free market system unless we are truly callous enough to turn poor people away at the door.  I'm not there.
    • Ice is good in some areas of main lake but bad in areas with moving water / springs. All resort / outfitter access's are closed to vehicles but some are open to four-wheelers. side by sides, and snowmobiles including Morris Point, Long Point, Dales's and Arnesen's, which still has fish houses available as well.  As always, use a resort or outfitter road for safety as they are monitored daily.  Walleye bite has been good with many keepers among smaller fish. Fish are aggressive and having a flasher is helpful.  Jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  17-33 ft.  Best colors glow pink/red and gold. Tip up fishing for pike on fire.  Many flags of northern pike in back bays and reefs.
      Rainy River spring fishing is ON!  The Rainy River is open all the way to Wheeler's Point. Birchdale, Frontier, Vidas, and Timbermill landings are open to all boats. Wheeler's Point will be open in a day or so.  Walleye fishing has been excellent. Many eater walleyes so far with a few monsters. Right now a 1/2 - 3/4 ounce jig is enough to get to the bottom while tipped with 1 or 2 frozen shiners. Pink, orange and gold are hot colors. Many sturgeon being boated as well.     Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are unstable as current areas are opening up quickly.  Travel with caution. Many resorts using airboats at this point.  Fish houses on LOW can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.  
    • I loved BBs post game the other nite after the canucks game,  he nailed it.  Guys got to step it up and play, outside of granny and staal, the rest look like they just started playing.  Lack luster for sure.  Im still hoping they come out and play like I know they are capable of but not looking good
    • This is what I have so far and I think I'll be changing A. Hackney B. KVD C. Ehrler D. Howell E. Lucas   I don't feel confidence about any of them except KVD haha Well I already made a switched and put Dafoe in bucket A for Hackney.
    •   I asked the same thing about a Month ago...must be a contract/money issue...we don't spend money foolishly 
    • Live Target for me. Tried a Lunkerhunt and it kept sinking and holding water.
    • Oh, the hat?  Correct, I was using clone stamp to build the hat.  Of all the problems with my photoshopped images, your issue is with the hat?  I thought the crude cutting and pasting was bad enough that nobody would notice the hat.      Still, you're a massive tool and I have accepted your challenge to do it better.
