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.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
