Ok pout lovers need some info. Im used to chasing pout on leech and have been trying deep humps brraks points ect. And am having a tough time finding them on lake bemidji. Is this lake not a very good pout factory or am i missing something?

I have fished all of those structures you mentioned many times so far and havent picked any up, but was fishing out on Lake Julia on Sunday on a shallow sand hump and got a really nice one just after dark.

I don't believe the burbot population on Bemidji is nearly what it once was. You can still find fish out there though. Look for areas/structure similiar to what you've been successful with on Leech.

Its slightly disheartening i feel all if the lakes that were once ling honey holes are now barron duldrums. Gna try lake bemidji again tomorrow on a deep 43 foot hump deer the deepest part of the lake.

Keep in mind that this time of year deep water is not necessarily a prerequisite in finding pout. Deep water access may be a key but, especially at night, don't hesitate to try the 20 foot'ish zone. Even shallow flats on Bemidji can be good.

Thanks for the input. I guess the intermediate depths have kinda been put on the back burner ive been focusing on 10 to 14 feet or 27 to 38 on bemidji. More of the areas ive fished on walker bay.

Depth isn't the key to the kingdom of 'pout. Structure is. They are just starting to get ready for their upcoming spawn. Things will get better over the next week or two...

There was a road plowed out there, unsure if it's open or not any longer. The walleyes bit there at the end of the season, but it's highly over-fished for 'pout now days. Fish still use it, but be prepared to fish around a bunch of others trying for them out there, and possibly some shy burbs.
