The lakes were firming up but now we received another 8-10 inches of snow over the past couple of days and more is on the way going into the weekend. If you can get to area’s on Lake Bemidji you will catch some walleyes and perch on jigging spoons and minnow heads in 28-32’.
The problem is getting out. Vehicle traffic is a no go, snowmobiles are a possibility but you really need to be aware that you could hit some major slush. We’ve been snowshoeing out to spots but that’s a lot of work. There just aren’t many folks out on area lakes. With more snow in the forecast it’s best to call ahead of time for an ice report.
