Bemidji or Cass?

7 posts in this topic

I'm gonna head up to red lake to do some fishing on the first weekend of '08. Was gonna stop by either bemidji or cass on the way home to goof around for a couple hours. Just wondering what you guys think would be the better choice to drop a line in?

Either of them is a great choice. You'll probably have similar luck on either lake. Cass had some nice fish going, but it's tougher to find them at times. Bemidji is a little easier to locate fish at times.

Good luck!

Saving winnie for a weekend all to it's own sometime in february. However, my trip to red is now in jeopardy due to problems with my truck. frown.gif

Well if you get the truck working and still make it up this way I'd suggest Bemidji. Cass is having some issues with poor ice, Bemidji is as well. But there are a few people out on Bemidji at this time, but be sure to talk with some of the locals before venturing out too far.

Buck, fished Cass on Sat. morning then Bemidji in the afternoon. Off-path travel was far worse on Bemidji! I guess it depends on where you're at on each lake.

That's good to know, thanks. I was going by a couple (usually) good resources, but glad for the update.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
