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.

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip. Cliff & Casey are regular contributors here and members of the Lake Vermilion Guides League.  https://lakevermilionguidesleague.com/.    Good Luck!

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
