Blackduck Area Fishing

2 posts in this topic

Who has been out fishing in the area the past week? We have found that fishing for us and our guests has been the same the past week as the previous ones. Blackduck Lake is still touch for the walleye bite, with most around here attributing it to the high heat that we had had, but August is typically slower on the Duck. A few anglers have found a few walleyes in the evening hours doing a slow troll with spinners tipped with leeches, but not many. Some pike have been reeled in while trolling and had one group that caught a couple of bass.

The gill bite in the area still continues to be good bobber fishing with a jig tipped with a leech. Still look to the weeds along the shorelines as the cabbage is not in the lakes as it normally is. Bass, pike and a few crappies are also being reeled in with this presentation also.

Anyone been to Island Lake lately?

Drake, I've been guiding on lake Bemidji last week for 5 days and fishing was incredible. We were in 5-7 feet of water and the fish were really feeding. We were catching limits of fish in a couple hours. Trolling cranks over the flatts has been the ticket. The fish were really nice eater sized fish. 14-19 inchers.

Haven't been to blackduck for a couple weeks. However lake of the woods and other area lakes have been pretty good.

Good luck.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!
