Bemidji perch

9 posts in this topic

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...

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
