Brian Truax is a great guide in the area for muskies! We have a muskie guide as well if you're interested...

I've seen quite a few 'ski's while walleye fishing, and actually had one rip up a 13" 'eye while I was reeling it in. Saw a dead 51.5" fish last night on the East side of the lake, what a shame! Bulldawg's and hair have been talk thus far, any color works as long as it's black and orange.... wink.gif Typical tactics, work the breaks, there's tons of cabbage, and find some of the midlake stuff to pitch as well.

Good luck while you're up!

If you're looking to fish Bemidji itself, Kevin Cochran is another great guide. He lives just a couple minutes from the lake and spends the majority of his time there. He puts some giants in the boat and I know he's been seeing a lot more active fish as of late.

If you're willing to head east 20 miles and hit Cass Lake, Brian Jones knows the lake as well as any and he'll work his butt off to put you on fish.

I talked to Brian jones couple times and today met his dad after several phone contacts.

These seem to be some pretty good family and would just like to pass this on.

Will try to get guide day by him ,should be good experience.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
