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 crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
