Been getting a few calls on the Annual Jaycee Fishing Derby on Blackduck Lake, so here's the info I have so far:

Time: 1:00-4:00pm

Place: Blackduck Lake (public access)

Cost: Tickets $10.00. Kids 12 and under free with paid derby ticket

Sounds like it will be pretty much the same as last year.

2nd Prize: Vexilar

3rd Prize: Gas Ice Auger.

Three prizes in each of the four fish categories: Walleye, Northern Pike, Perch, Alternate Species, with an entry in each catagory per fish, with the drawing for the prizes to be held at 4pm.

Door Prizes and Drawings Throughout the day

This event is always a good time for the family and the town of Blackduck. Looking forward to it again this year, and maybe I will win something again. I got skunked last year, but did see some nice eye's come in and sniff the bait. The two years before I caught the first fish of the tournament and placed 6th for a wonderful Quilt that is on the bed in the OFFICE! grin.gif

Who all is going to attend?

It is a lot of fun, prizes are good and of course the multiple door prizes. Yes, they do three prizes for each of the four catagories (walleye, perch, pike & alternate species). For every fish you catch in each catagory you register it (no matter what the size) and then you will have an entry for each fish in each of the catagories that you have fish in. At the end they will draw three winners, so each fish gives you a chance no matter the size. I talked to them last night and don't have a list yet of all the prizes.

Go straight past Timberline to the access. Word is that the contest is going to be to the North again! grin.gif I sure hope they start plowing on Friday to open it up, because those drifts are big and hard! \:D

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
