Bemidji Perch [jerk-bait]

14 posts in this topic

The annual Bemidji Perch [jerk-bait] for kids is this Sunday March 2nd from 1-3 on lake Bemidji. Get the kids out to this event. They are giving away 60 bikes and lots of other prizes also. You get a free lunch and one hole per kid.

If any of you want to run your auger on Sunday morning, please feel free to show up and help us drill holes. I have been told they want aprox. 1000 holes drilled so I am putting a bug into your ear to get you to come and help. I will post more info as I get it or if anybody else can post more let us know!

My kids look forward to this event every year, and I was told last weekend if they don't get enough volunteers that this was the last year for it. It is about the kids people, take some time out of your busy schedule and help the Dark house association out by volunteering at this wonderful event for the KIDS!

Hope to see you there!

Be on the South end at 8:30 a.m.

The derby runs from 1-3 p.m.

They need some help after the derby to help clean up...

The more help the better..

Thanks,

Beef

Woodman,

I don't know what word you are using but maybe the FM computer has a program that replaces words, maybe a brand name or something, with another word. At least you didn't get the (poor word usage) slapped on you!

If the wife lets me come on down to punch some holes should I add my extension???

It is easier drilling without it, until you get way down there, then the extension sure is nice.

I have not stepped foot on Bemidji this year.

I was told my Mark Cook last night that they have 6 augers from Strike Master with 6 inch diameter that they will use due to the number of small kids attending this event. I am going to bring my 8 inch in case they decide to us that diameter also. Strike Master is a sponsor and they will have a trailer there with goodies to purchase.

See ya on the lake Sunday am around 8:30.

I'd make a joke about "leaving my 9" at home..." but I won't go there! Personally, I never leave home without mine!

How'd the Perch Derby go? I'd have loved to be up there for it but my hope is that the beautiful weather made for a fantastic day. I hope you have some great photos to share Beef. We could use them in our kid's ice fishing seminar next December at the ice fishing show.

Please post a few photos if ya can! \:\)

Well thanks for all who volunteered to drill holes and work the event. I saw only about 6 perch that were hanging at the weight in shack. Pretty slow day, but what a blast fishing in a BLIZZARD! I am a little sore from drilling all those holes, thank GOD BUCK was my auger mate this am! grin.gif Great day, good deals on Strike Master clothing and augers! The wife bought an electric auger me a jacket and bibs and her a fleece jacket! grin.gifgrin.gif Good day for the both of us!

Great to see all the families out there and kids having a blast wrestling in the snow and pulling each other in the sleds. Way to Go Dark House Association for a great event!

The Dark House Association is a class act and their leader Roger is one of the most under-credited outdoorsman in our state. Every year the Dark House Association gives a lot of money back to the community. Not bad for a group that's been called "harpooners" back in the day.

To get back on topic...those Bemidji perch are a beautiful species of fish with some terrific colorations. I've only caught them ice fishing and it totally makes sense why yellow lures work so well for the pike and muskies!

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
