Lake Bemidji is a slushy mess!?!?!?!?!

11 posts in this topic

Is all of Lake Bemidji covered in slush??

I was on the west side and found lots of slush around Reise point.

I haven't fished on Bemidji yet this year, but I imagine with the amount of snow that seems to just keep coming, it's making everything slushy! - Other lakes are in the same condition.

It had 7" today, probably was the best out of the ones Ive fished (north end of the lake) as far as slush goes.

I don't like the drifts on the lake for snowmobiling, but I think some strong winds may help the lake out. Thin that snow out some and let that -25 go to work. Just watch out for the drifts.

Hopefully with this -20 it will help the lakes freeze up good and solid. Man is it cold out there, went out to get the paper at 5:30 am and forgot to put on my sweats. shocked.gif

We are going to be adding another fisher person to the Hanson family on Tuesday, that is way I have not been out on the lake. Been busy getting the house ready for the new arrival. Have to build a bigger fish house now or by some tip ups for two additional lines in the winter! grin.gif

Good luck out there and BE SAFE!

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
