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 would like to fish walleye and crappies, very new to this as it has been many years since I have ice fished! Using Ice Castle so not as mobile as a person could be with a portable fish house. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      I can get to everything except ICE. You guys too?

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?

      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?
