Around Blackduck

5 posts in this topic

Pretty decent weekend in the Blackduck area. Had just a few out fishing over the weekend and they are finding the fall bite has been pretty good with a variety of fish being caught, sunnies, walleye and a few pike. For those out hitting the woods, the grouse reports have varied from group to group. The stronger winds mid week had the grouse hanging pretty tight to the pines, and many of the hunters I talked to said that they were a little further out in the woods than they normally go but that's where they were finding them (the fourwheel activity pushed them back further from the trails), but still decent numbers coming through the cleaning shack. Just a few bow hunters up, with does coming through, haven't heard of the thirty pointer being spotted yet.

Right now looking at the forecast doesn't look like we're gong to be having snow for opener. It was in the forecast for this past Saturday, but that didn't happen, and now they have a 40% chance for Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, and a slight chance for Friday night, with the temps predicted in the mid 40's for the highs and 20's for the lows over the weekend. Good luck to everyone hunting this weekend!

Just wanted to say good luck to all hunters heading out. Looks temps in the mid 40's for the highs and 20's for the lows for the weekend, then the early part of next week 30's for the highs. Only showing a slight chance of snow showers tonight, then not again until Monday night.

Hope everyone had a good start to hunting over the weekend. In the deer shack there's currently 13 deer hanging and had another group that left their six out, so not bad for the first couple of days. But did have one young hunter who had never gone deer hunting before and he shot a nice doe the first day out...he's now hooked!

Here is what my dad harvested over the weekend. The big one got away, but this one came in to the call the next afternoon.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
