Lake Bemidji Access

6 posts in this topic

Gents,

Can anyone tell me which access point to use? I have an old Desert Storm Navy buddy coming to visit me in Brainerd. We are coming to fish on Upper Red and Lake Bemidji. I'd like to know where to put in at. Any other bits of info would help us as well. He has never caught a walleye in fact he keeps mis-pronouncing it as well:>) Any suggestions on places to wet the whistle? Maybe a VFW or any congregating place of ex-military. Thanks in advance.

Access Bemidji at Northwoods access. It is located on north end of lake along Bemidji ave. Or Nymore access east of the Hampton Inn. As far as a place to go after fishing the hampton has a bar or I may suggest the American Legion downtown on second street or the Eagles club on washington ave S

There are usually a few of us at the "209" on the same block as the legion.

Sounds great the game plan is to catch a limit of fish and review our strategies at the pub. Some of the ex-military establishments don't serve Guniness so we'll be making our way towards fulfilling that requirement. I think I can gather enough info that everybody has already pitched in so I think we are all set to rock and roll. Thanks again.

Brigids Cross is across from Keg n Cork and has Guiness also.

Best place to catch the info on Bemidji Walleyes is corner Chris Haley at 209 smirk.gif.

      Just curious about these two landings...Heading out for pike next weekend. Any "sketchy" spots or ice ridges I need to worry about this year? I normally go out of the warroad landing and head east down the shore a little ways. Thanks

      No compression and if it is leaking fuel out of the exhaust, then it is a valve problem, fix-able, but at what cost when compared to a new one or find a used unit.

      Hello everyone last year at he end of ice season I got a clam auger plate. The one you install in place of drill chuck. I didn't have time to use it last season. This past Christmas I got a Milwaukee fuel drill and it doesn't fit. The threads for the chuck are bigger then the adapter clam includes. Has anyone dealt with this issue?

      With ice as thick as 24-30 inches and long range forecast for freezing temps, ice fishing season through March in good shape. Roads have smoothed out from the warmer weather and now freezing again.  Some snow still remains on the lake. A very active bite continues with many good sized walleyes and saugers.  Working every fish with electronics is helpful.  Some walleyes are suspended. The anglers working a jigging line with jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/ early afternoon and 17-24 before nightfall.  Best colors glow pink/red or chartreuse.    The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been spotty at times. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. The river is open from Birchdale to the east. Only some shore ice remains and some reports say anglers have already started pushing boats over the ice.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition. On the Minnesota side,  walleyes are being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits.  In Ontario the crappie bite has been hot and cold as of last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.
