I will be up in the Bemidji area over Memorial and am wondering how the boat launch is on Big. The water was very low last fall, and I know you didn't get much snow over the winter. Any info would be helpful. I am hoping that the weekend gives me a little time to wet a line between projects on my parents' cabin.

Landing is in good shape, the dnr left a beaver dam alone on the river going to andrusia and the water level is excellent. Good luck and let us know how you do! grin.gif

I will let you know. Hopefully it will be beautiful weather, some fish, and good times with family. Anxious to see my grandpa too. Chuck Conway Sr.

I know most of your family. I grew up with the Fishers in Northome. I stopped by the old resort last summer and talked to your aunt and she remembered me from when I was little. I had my kids with so we chatted on the dock for about an hour.

I will be up there one week from today (Friday through Monday). If you happen by, stop in. I have a 180T Tuffy with a 60 Yamaha if you are out on the lake. If you stop by the resort, I am in the second to last cabin on the north end of the resort. I am sure there will be something cold in the fridge.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
