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!

      With social media the new normal is for people to rant the open airways.  Unfortunately, some times people cross the line. I don't think that has happened here, but I would also say that I have sympathy for the new owners of the Landing.  I continue to go there knowing I will pay more than I generally would want to.  I would probably go more if their prices were lower as they are much closer to me than The Crescent.

      Another sunrise and another sunset made my day yesterday as I  enjoyed a day on such a grand lake. I spent part of the morning in old Minnesota making some phone calls, planning my day and even wetting a line.
       Berry and his crew Ted, Mike  and Scott had left early do to the weather conditions in southern Minnesota. They only managed 3 more fish after the move. "Stupid fish".
       I hung out in old minnesota until the generator ran out of gas so I could figure out how long it ran on a tank. !0 1/2 hours as she quit running at 8:30 am. Sure would be nice to have that burg system? Oh that's right its in the snow bank . "Stupid thing" not sure why it fails.
       After fueling up the generator I made the morning rounds to be a little disappointed with the fishing report "Stupid fish" Oh well as Wayne always says if we caught them all there would not be any to catch.
       I then went over to clean and prep Montana for Brian and Stacy as they were coming up for there 25th anniversary.
        I also gave Reid and Jason a couple tips as they were off to find the very elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. They only caught one walleye in North Carolina so I told them when they came back it would be in a new spot.
       I then said goodbye to Steve from Michigan  and his crew in Florida. They did horrible on low and did not fair much better in florida the third night. They did have some action on tip ups though just outside the house.
       Then over to north Dakota where again no fish "stupid fish" what a horrible spot that turned out to be. We talked and I told them I would be back at 10:30 to move the house. Arriving back at 10:38  we were on the move. I told them if all went well they would be wetting a line again by noon. I also said if they wanted they could ride in north Dakota. Scott ask if I had any more shovels and I said sure do I have 3  so they all pitched in to dig her out. The move went well and just like I promised they were wetting a line  by noon. Cory said the ride was way smoother then he expected.
       The phone rings and its Stacy and Brian 2 hours early, perfect as the house is ready to go. At the same time Buddy Hillmen calls and says he is over the pressure ridge and were going to open another mile of road. OH! Oh! plan A is now switched to plan B. I get them checked in and I'm off to help with the new road.
       It did not take long to burn up a 1/2 tank of gas. I checked in with Buddy Hillmen and headed home to  gas up, check the fluids and get back out to the houses as I still had more work there. Moving north Carolina went well other then a few issues with the extension cords. As my very good pal Wayne says. "Here at Cookies we do it right cause we do it Twice"
       Once North Carolina was all set I was back out to Hillmen's highway where we would keep plugging away on the new mile of road. 2 hours later and I was heading home for a quick bite before making the evening rounds.
      Stacy and Brian were the first stop where Stacy had lost 5 fish at the hole. I gave her a tip on landing them so we will see if that pans out.
       Reid and Jason found north Carolina and had a blast fishing outside all day. They landed a few walleyes but no" elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie". I guess that's why I call them elusive.
       Last stop was at North Dakota ! I had played a round of Texas Hold um with them the night before and wanted another shot. 
        Scott did not play, he sure deserves to catch a few fish as he was always holding his fishing rod and jigging  when I stopped in. One fish was all they caught on the new spot "stupid fish".
       I lost a second time in hold um and headed home where I ran into a local Dave him and his son had set up just to the north east of us where they landed 3 nice fish.
       Well back to the grind again today. we have mike coming for north Dakota and Kieth and his kids coming for florida. I told both them that check in was at 2pm.

      Lundeens was out of shiners when I was there granted it was Sunday

      I believe that one in Monticello closed down

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.
