For a non smart*** reply, all I can say is people aren't going to want to give away their honeyholes. Once owrd gets out of a hot panfish lake in the Bemidji area, it doesn't take long to get fished out. Just look at what is happening to Gilstad LAke this winter and you'll see for yourself.

A few lakes that are not secrets would be Rabideau and Grace. Grace has really rceived lots of pressure lately.

Your best bet is to go out searching and if you get lucky, keep the locationa secret. Probbaly not what you want to hear, but there are a lot of unregistered people who cruise these forums.

Thank you smartguy, you took the words right out of my mouth! And yes Gilstad got pound this winter, and Grace the last 2 winters!

Waska do you go to BSU and are you from Glenwood/Starbuck/Lowry/Villard area? If so, I understand where your coming from, because I have family that live there.

Don't be afraid to do some research with survey numbers and try fishing lakes off the beaten path. Everyone wants to catch big fish, but not all are willing to walk or ride sled/atv back into the woods to find them. Good luck and hold your big bluegill spots close to the vest or they won't be big bluegill spots for long.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
