Bemidji perch

Recommended Posts

Will be coming up the 9th 10th 11th of march and usually hit bemidji for a day. I have usually targeted the north side in depths 30-35 feet with mixed results. Any better areas to target? Thanks Joe

Joe,

The perch have been going off in many depths. They're on the feed, and we've been finding most of the bigger fish in the 28-40 foot depths. Action has been best in 15-25 feet, but you have to really weed through them. Size 4 Chubby Darters have been the bait of choice! Choose a break and work your way down.

Gold Metallic Orange or Yellow Dace. Hot Perch is also a good one to have in your arsenal...

Thanks Matt, hopefully still gonna make the trip. I guess the new snow will answer that question as I don't own a sled.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.
