Lake Bemidji Muskys in October?

3 posts in this topic

Hey, no need for "hot spots", just curious if it's worth fishing for Muskys in October on Lake Bemidji and if so, does one troll deep or cast the shallows this time of year? Thanks and any help will be appreciated with a report back to this forum - Scott

Yes it is worth fishing. I have done very good on a few midlake humps and the shorelines. I dont troll but assume it would be affective too;

Scott,

There's some monsters in there. October would be prime time to get a big fattie. They could be anywhere....shoreline weeds, breaklines, reeds and midlake humps. Make sure you try the gammet. Don't forget to check the deep water for baitfish. Good luck.

Tim

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
