Ruttgers on Lake Bemidji

4 posts in this topic

Just looking for some input on this resort. Is it nice? Are the cabins right on the water? Any privacy or are they close together? Docks or harbor?

I've heard this lake is pretty good for walleye. Is this true? We usually fish Mille Lacs, Leech, or Vermilion but would like to check out a new area.

As usual - thanks to all grin.gif

Very nice place. Wind came up at night and you could hear

the waves crashing the shoreline while sleeping. Wife

wanted me to sell our cabin and buy one with a BR near

the water. Nice beach, main lodge and cabins. Dave's Pizza

even delivers to Ruttgers. I grew up there and that is great

pizza. Have fun

Lake Bemidji is tremendous for walleyes! You should find fish, they're going off all over the lake! The FLW should slow things down a bit, as well as the algae bloom, but you should be in for some good fishing!

Ruttger's is great by the way. You'll enjoy your stay!

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
