Anyone out on bebee the last couple days? I heard about 4-5 inches a couple days ago. I was thinking about stopping by there today and checking it out.

My wife and I fished Bebee this past weekend with Great Success! Found 4 good inches of ice underneath 4 inches of snow and some slush. We were jigging in 13 fow using only the minnow heads and while I hate to admit this my wife outfished me 3 to 1. We did very good on walleyes although most were in the 13inch range. All fish were returned. Not bad for the first ice fish outing of the season! smile.gif

No I didnt make it out there that day, but I did make it out to Island Lake where there was about 5 inches of ice. I am going to out to Bebee tomorrow. Does anyone know about the farmer that lets people park on his property for a donation....don't really want to walk all the way from the public access.

Just drop a dollar in the box and walk on out. Nice people and it sure saves a long walk. Used it twice already this year.

its a few houses before the landing i think after you get off of 241 and then you take the right to head to the landing i do believe it is the first or second driveway on the left usually there is a sign out by the mail box at least there was last tuesday when i was there. I'll be out there today but out from the landing how has fishing been in that bay?

i'm not sure about street names. out of st micheal heading west you take that left at the red brick house off of 241 i do believe then you take that road down a mile maybe and it comes to a T and you take a right to head to the boat landing the house is just after you take that right on the left side he usually has a sign by the mail box

I am going out there today to fish the bay and hopefully find the farmers house. I have never fished over by the landing before, but I have heard its a good spot in the summer.

If your coming from St.Michael on county road 35 west take a left on Hamline go down to the T and take a right and you will see the house on your left and there should be a sign leaning against the mail box like stated above. There is a cross on the building on the left side of the driveway.

I was also on Bebee on Sunday. Caught 5 small walleyes. All were released. I was fishing in 13 fow jigging with minnow heads. I am having a hard time finding the crappies thus far. They were in the spot I am fishing this summer. I kindda like putting my own patterns together but any suggestions would be appreciated. I will be out Wenesday as well. Good Luck!

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.

      great fish!

      Greetings fishermen and women! Its great being back in the swing of things and better yet in the boat! Both the MN and Ontario season is now open and fishing has been great! Staffers here at Flag Island Resort have been busy getting ready for the upcoming summer months with some deep cleaning, window washing, grounds work and remodeling!   On the Minnesota side anglers have been catching nice saugers, walleyes and perch. Soon the crappies should be finding their way into the shallows around Angle Inlet and other small creeks and the walleyes have spawned out over the past couple of weeks. With the warmer temps that started out last week anglers were finding fish in shallower water between 5-17 feet now, with the cooler temps, rain and winds most of the fish have been pushed deeper into the 16-26 foot range. Points and reefs close to large land masses adjacent to sand and rubble have been hot locations. Anglers have found fish near Soldier’s, Little Oak, Oak Island and NW Point. The water surface temp has been in that 50-55 degree range. Right now it seems like everything is working from ¼ to 3/8 jigs to slow trolling with raps in the shallows as well as trolling spinners keeping on the move at 0.9 mph.   Over in Ontario, the walleye, sauger, crappie, perch and pike have been hungry. Perch and crappie should be spawning soon. Crappies are being caught around the 20 foot mark . Sandy bays and points have been best for the walleye and crappie bite while the perch are still caught in the rocks. Many pike have been caught in areas with current. There have been reports of a lot of smallmouth mixed in with the walleyes.  Jigging with a ¼-3/8 ounce jig has been the ticket and the water temp has been around 49-52 degrees.   We hope to see you up here soon! Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
