Blackwater Lake

4 posts in this topic

Hi there. My parents just bought a cabin up on Blackwater Lake. I am heading up there next week to take a look around and try to seek out some 'eyes. I am wondering if anyone has any feedback on the fishing quality of Blackwater. I know the lake is right next to Woman and may head over there also. Thanks for any feedback!!!

Never fished it, but my inlaws almost bought a place on blackwater last fall. Its a nice lake. Lots of structure. Its mostly a bass/crappie lake, but there are eyes in there. I would focus on the bass. The bass are all catch and release and I am told there are some dandies in there. Good luck, post your reports.

I've fished it for bass, and it is a pretty decent lake. This year it was good early in the year, you can catch a lot of nice bass, but there are some of those 4, 5lb's to.

Hey Demasiado my family has a trailer in holiday haven resort on the lake. It is a great year round lake to fish. In the spring is the best time for big walleyes. I pulled a 27inch eye out of there this year. You can see a picture of it in mule lake store my name is jake . But in the summer is when the crappies start bitting steady. I always pull a few limits out of there aroung july. In the fall is when the bass take over all the fishing. And in the winter I havent had any luck for anything. Well good luck on your fishing.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
