Is the house Hess's house? My family rented that one this summer for our reunion. Man is it big and the pool/ hot tub was awsome. Parked a pontoon at the dock and gave rides all week to the elders.

If it is on bemidji, try reeses or cameron point in aboot 30-35 feet of water for perch during the day and try a little shallower for walleyes at sunset and into the night. Stop in at Tabers bait when you get up here and talk to Ron he can point you to whatever species of fish you are looking to catch.

The house is beween Reeses, and Cameron if it is the same one my family had. Just go straight out from the house and you have some excellent fishing.

I got the opportunity to get out a couple days ago and fished this area for walleyes. It was the best 1.5 hours of fishing I had this year - zero boats on the lake. Blue and white Fireball jig with a minnow at 18-30 feet. It needed to be jigged aggresively or they wouldn't take it. Biggest was 27" in 18 feet and most of the eaters were deeper.

Of course being by myself, getting the boat loaded and unloaded was interesting!

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
