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!

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
