I would agree with junk23: avoid the weekends, last weekend I had to wait in line for a considerable amount of time, both to get on the lake and off. Luckily I was able to snag a parking spot that was open but boats were parked far down the dirt road when I got there, as well as when I left. It is a nice clear lake, and has some nice muskies in it as well.

You're a smart man. Wait until that water clears up. The wind was hammering JR's and Rogers the days before the lake locked up causing extremely stained water conditions that we fished in this weekend. Needless to say our group of five scrounged up half our limit both Saturday and Sunday. Everyone we talked to struggled as well. Tight lines guys! I'll be back up as soon as the water clears up a little, but until then its Lake Bemidji.

Grouse Patterns in Snow

Hey guys, I do a fair amount of grouse hunting in the fall and have only been out once after it snowed searching for birds. I didn't have any luck that day. What are their patterns when there is snow on the ground. Do they mostly stay up in the trees? I am looking to fill time before the ice sets up and with this recent snowfall I am looking for a few tips. Any info helps. Thanks!

A tip on heaters I have learned over the years-I own both a big buddy heater as well as a sunflower style heater that connects to a 20lb propane tank. The big buddy heater does well most of the time for me but when it gets bitterly cold I like to bring the sunflower heater instead. It does a much better job keeping the fish house at a comfortable temp. I think we're all itching to get on the ice again! It'll be here before we know it.

I was up on the Rainy River last weekend. We got up there shortly after the sun had come up and launched out of Birchdale. We went up the river about a mile and started the morning off fishing a deep hole. We caught a lot of walleyes in about 15-22 FOW focusing on the break around the hole. Around 10:30AM the bite shut off completely and we only picked up a few more fish until we left at about 2 in the afternoon. If I was to change one thing I would have launched an hour earlier to take full advantage of the hot morning bite. Hindsight is 20/20. We were using 3/8oz jogs tipped with emerald shiners. Good luck, and let us know how you end up doing!

Tomorrow will be my first time heading up to the Rainy River in the fall, any current reports or tips on what I should be doing? From what I've read jig and shiner seems to be the most common method in about 15-25 feet. Do people prefer anchoring in these depths or drifting the jig to cover more ground? (I have also heard trolling raps is effective this time of year as well up there.) Any feedback is appreciated!

Bemidji guy here-For panfish the crappies have been suspended around the deepest basins of the lakes I have been fishing. Right around the deepest break is where I will look for fish on my graph and when I mark a school I will drop a 1/8 jig with a crappie minnow on them. They are hungry this time of year so catching a lot is not difficult. The key is locating the fish and staying on top of them which can be difficult with the high winds fall can bring. Regarding walleyes, I have been fishing shallow and having success. Find a weedline and fish on the outside of it casting a jig and a big minnow. I know guys also throw big jerkbaits up in shallow rocks and do well this time of year. At night I like to troll #5 rapalas up on the flats and pick off fish this way, especially if there is a visible moon out providing additional light. Hope this report helped, good luck out there!

I was up there a week ago and dabbled with both patterns. During the day drifting a jig and minnow along the breaklines produced a few fish but things really started to pick up at dusk when I started trolling #5 rapalas along the breaklines. I tried pulling raps during the day without much luck but at dusk it was the ticket. It was fairly slow the day I went even though I filled out-Red lake can be on fire in the fall however. In years past I have had non-stop action on that lake similar to how it is in the spring. I will be making another trip up there before it ices up. Good luck and tight lines!
