2/11-13th report

2 posts in this topic

Went out of Hillmans on Sunday, then JR's on Monday & Tuesday (Stayed at Meadow Creek Cabins). All I can say is "at least the weather was nice". It was sunny with little to no wind so we were able to fish outside. All three days we moved every 20 minutes or so and drilled 5-6 holes in each spot(mostly around rough ice). We started 5.5 miles out of Hillmans, worked our way out to center bar and ended up on the South shore. The best walleye action was around the SE corner. We marked very few fish, most of the fish we marked we caught. Between 3 guys we caught 1 crappie, 5 keeper walleyes, 4 perch (released 6 walleyes - a few just a hair over 17"). The ice is thick which made drilling lots of holes difficult. We also got to experience the Red Lake earthquake on Sunday night - my Dad was fishing near a heave that grew a few inches after the quake was over. Anyways I still have crappie fever and plan to go back soon.

thanx for the report even though you didnt have much luck. we were up there last weekend too and only caught one walleye. it seems most people only post reports when they do well enticing people like me to drive 5 hours thinking i will have my limit in 2 hours blush.gif) oh well, i know the fish are there so i will be back too.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
