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!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
