Bebee Lake

6 posts in this topic

We dragged the perm out today. What an adventure! With the slush still in the shallows, we pretty much plowed our way out.First we broke the eye hook out of one end, than we snapped the eye hook out of the back side. Ended up running a tow strap through the holes and back out Just to get the house out where we were on solid ice and could inspect the damage.Not as bad as we thought,for a 12 year old shack.Ended up catching 2 nice 18" walleye's and a 11" crappie. There is about 13" of ice in most places, but we could use some cold weather to firm things up for truck traffic.

I set up my perm in about the same place. I still move around a lot with my black portable. I bring the girls and grandkids out to the perm and still catch a few, but not like earlier. Been thinking of moving it over to the south side of the island.I've had some better luck just off of the hump.Had some good luck in about 16fow.

I haven't been out there in a week or two. Anything hitting? I'll maybe have to move my house when I get up there tomorrow. I'm in the bay on the edge of the city.

I went out with my buddy on monday.. started in the morning for some eyes, no luck. then moved into the bay for some crappies. set up on the southside of the city in about 10 FOW. hit some gills and 5 keeper crappies but let em go to grow. I think there could be a township on beebe lake itself now a days! grin.gif

My dad just moved the house to the SE side of the island. How have they been biting over there? I'm heading out there tomorrow afternoon.

      I would say Pike fishing got noticeably worse after the first year of spearing.  Used to catch lots of big pike while musky fishing..  I didn't catch a single one last year.  Makes me sad and angry, to be honest.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.
