Brian Truax is a great guide in the area for muskies! We have a muskie guide as well if you're interested...

I've seen quite a few 'ski's while walleye fishing, and actually had one rip up a 13" 'eye while I was reeling it in. Saw a dead 51.5" fish last night on the East side of the lake, what a shame! Bulldawg's and hair have been talk thus far, any color works as long as it's black and orange.... wink.gif Typical tactics, work the breaks, there's tons of cabbage, and find some of the midlake stuff to pitch as well.

Good luck while you're up!

If you're looking to fish Bemidji itself, Kevin Cochran is another great guide. He lives just a couple minutes from the lake and spends the majority of his time there. He puts some giants in the boat and I know he's been seeing a lot more active fish as of late.

If you're willing to head east 20 miles and hit Cass Lake, Brian Jones knows the lake as well as any and he'll work his butt off to put you on fish.

I talked to Brian jones couple times and today met his dad after several phone contacts.

These seem to be some pretty good family and would just like to pass this on.

Will try to get guide day by him ,should be good experience.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
