I found the Jumbos and I didnt have to holehop. Best jumbo fishing I ever had. No bull! You just got to put your time in and every so often, get lucky. Me, I am sticking to Millacs. Best water in the state!

son of a.....I was a week early. We did the same thing, bounced around between the mud and the rock on Feb 1 and got nothing. Glad to see there are some fish in that big lake.

Harvey- were you guys closer to shore or more out on the gravel and mud? I tried the rock to gravel/sand transitions earlier this year and did not have the best of luck. Not looking to get your spots, but would like to know what bottom types/FOW you guys were finding success. THanks

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
