Most Bemidji area lakes still not ready for ice fishing
Many lakes in the Bemidji area are frozen over, although the north end of Lake Bemidji, parts of Cass Lake, the deep bays of Leech Lake and some of the other deep lakes still have open water.
It helps to have at least one night of temperatures below zero to set the ice at this point in the season, but that hasn't happened yet.
