Black Sturgeon Bay?

8 posts in this topic

I am trying to find Black Sturgeon Bay on my H2o GPS and Navionics chip and am not seeing it.

Can anyone tell me what it is near? I see Porters, Browns, Redgut, Spawn but no Black Sturgeon.

Any help is appreciated!

Chris

You mean the secret giant crappie hole!

Look between Crowrock and Hopkins Bay. It is also just west of the 502 Hwy to Dryden. The best part of the water which is where most head for, is over the bog and looks like a small lake attached to Black sturgeon. There is a bush road just before Black Sturgeon that gets you very close to the water.

U,

Just a little south and west of Porters Inlet you will find Crowrock Inlet. On the west end of Crowrock lies Black Stugeon.

Have fun,

Berng

Thanks! You Rainy guys are the BEST! I got a way point set. I can't believe I couldn't find it. Wasn't looking in that spot though.

Now let's keep it hush hush about the monster super black crappie hole! SSHHHHH!

Uguide~

Not a bad time, but still the wrong time of the year. There is only about a 2week window if you are looking for a MONSTER. If u are looking for 14-15" fish. March u will pick up a few. But Tough to find a 16"+ Get ahold of me and i can set you on some fish for sure!

Thanks 16, I'll get ahold of you. Since 15.5" is my personal best, a 16+ r would be a great thing to hunt for. We're pretty content just getting a balance between staying safe, getting some fish to eat,getting some fish action and enjoying the scenery. Aside from that we would also like to put a couple slabbers on the wall.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too
    • DLD24
      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.
