Blue Berries/Northern fishing.

6 posts in this topic

My family and I are heading to Bearhead Lake Aug. 31st. Will there still be blue berries in season at that time? Or will that be to late? I was at Rainy Lake 2 weeks ago and found many plants but the berries were still ripening. Looked like they had quite a ways to go. Also looking to tie into some pike for dinner! Is BearHead a good Pike lake? is there much for vegitation on the lake? Thanks for any response!!!!

The blueberries are ripe for the picking right now. I am thinking that in 6 weeks it is going to be over.

We picked our first ripe blueberries this summer on June 30. They are peaking about now. They'll be done by the time you get up here.

On good years we have picked blueberries until the first frosts in September. This is the Hovland/Grand Portage area. Maybe they are done sooner further west?

...there are good pike to be had on bearhead, but being a state park, it is pounded non stop. A great weed bed exists on the main body of water by the west shore....or, about 100 yds from the boat launch, you will find a hump that exists before entering the main lake....you will have to deal with massive boat traffic coming and going, but you will catch pike...

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
