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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
