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...

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
