Texas Rigs (Pitch/Flip)
Big Lake is one of a couple lakes in the Bemidji area with cane, which is some of the thickest cover in the state. Big bass love the cane, but it can be a pain to flip. Fish tend to go really deep into cane, which calls for heavy gear. I use an 8.1:1 reel, a 7'6 heavy action, 65 pound braid, 3/4oz weight and a craw tube. The craw tube is really important because it has a very streamlined profile, which comes through cover really well. These aren't the most durable bait though, so I'd recommend grabbing 25 pack or even bigger. Tight lines!

Big bass are on the weedlines, hanging out around bedding bluegill. Have been using my Humminbird side imaging to find bluegill beds, then dropping the aqua-vu on them to see if there are bluegill on them and the size of the bluegill. Bigger bass hang around the bigger bluegills.
