January 1st report...

Well my wife and I decided to kick off the new year fishing on Lake Bemidji. We packed up our son and hit the lake. We were in one of our rental houses from 3:45 until 5:15 and we caught the bite just right! We managed to keep our limits of walleyes, and 1 jumbo perch. We also tossed back a nice 22" that my wife caught, as well as 3-4 other small walleyes. I lost one of the bigger fish I've ever set a hook into as well, and I'm sure I'll think about it throughout 2010! The fish bit from the time we sat down and were still biting when we left! All fish kept were from 12" to 20" and were all caught on VertiGlo jigs and spoons, 33' of water.

Great report & pics, Matt. The smiles on everyone's faces tells the whole story.

It's awesome that Nikki & Tate got out with you!

Looks like you had a blast!!! My brother said he had the best walleye action of his life last night icing he figured 17-20 fish (walleyes)and then I gave him my report from the brainerd area....1 about 7" fish. I thought the cold front shut'm down until he called!! Also, he was in 18' and I was in 20'. My dad caught 2 17" and 19" in 32' so go figure!! It's cold but there are fish to be caught!! Demon jigs and forage minnows w/fatheads.

Another good day today, 17-18 walleyes through the holes, as well as a load of nice perch. Tossed back a 22.5" and a fat 26". Season's looking good in the Northcountry!

Here's the fat 26 from Sat...

Renters from Sunday to Wednesday reported slower walleye fishing, getting 5-6 a day, but good perch action through the day. Hopefully things pick back up w/ the warm-up over the weekend!
