staying in Bemidji aug 4-11 (help)

4 posts in this topic

My wife and I are staying in a cabin in Bemidji, and just wonder how the fishing is. Usually fish for walleye, but like catching about anything (never caught a burbot but we would be tickled to catch one). I have a 16' boat with forty horse and bow mount so anything is posible. We are staying at Tabers and heard they deal bait anything else.

What else can we find to do when she gets sick of fishing, historic, scenic, or just fun.

The fishing has been absolutely wonderful on Lake Bemidji as well as numerous other lakes in the area. If you're staying at Taber's, I'm sure they can point you in the direction of some fish...

As for sights, you can travel to the Mississippi headwaters, Lake Bemidji State Park, Animal Land, the lake walk... there are a lot of things to do in the area, just stop at the visitors center and get some information!

You'll love it up here, the fishing is great, and the area is beautiful!

I just finished up 4 days of guiding and released close to 30 fish over 23.5" with the largest going 28". Anybody that says catch and release still kills fish, does not know what they are talking about as we caught the same 23.5" twice last night. The first time the hook was too deep for me to try and remove. 20 minutes later we caught a 23.5 and when I opened her mouth, there's the red hook. I remove but the line still stayed in her mouth. I tugged on it and low and behold it was still connected to the hook (2nd hook). If you play them quick and snap a photo and release, they will be fine. I'm waiting for pics to be emailed to me and I will post once they arrive.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
