Bemidji state park/surrounding areas

5 posts in this topic

we got news that my brother got chosen to participate in the Bemidji state park YOUTH hunt. I was wondering if anyone ever hunted this or the surrounding areas. My brother , father and I will be going. My father will actually acompany my brother and I will be looking for state wmas, forests, or something around the area to spend the time bow hunting. Kill two birds with one stone he he he. Any suggestions, ideas, or kind of activity. The dates are October 19 20th and 21st

SchoolCraft Game refuge is not far from Bemidji. I lived in Bemidji for 6 years, was the hardest place to leave... SchoolCraft is an archery only area, and has some great deer hunting.. Look it up.

BSU alum here and I would second what Deitz says. Great grouse country and if you put your time in you could find a monster buck!!!

good luck.

P.S. don't forget to stop in at the Becide Bar for the prime rib it is the best prime rib you will find north of the Twin Cities gauranteed.

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
