The Long Weekend

1 post in this topic

Hope everyone had a great last long weekend of the summer. Bear hunting started on Friday and we've had one guest who got his bear. A few hunters are out there today saying that the baits been hit by some decent sizers, now to be able to get the shot off.

Fishing was actually really good this weekend. Friday was a bit windy with gusts to 17 mph, so that made it a bit choppy, but Saturday and Sunday (and today) it's been beautiful, temps around 80 and pretty calm. On Blackduck Lake the walleye fishing has kicked back into gear, with walleyes (and the occassional jumbo sunfish) being caught in various depths, just working the humps out there with a night crawler being the ticket. Definitely busy out there on Saturday, the main lot was pretty full so got away from the crowds and reeled in a couple of wallys for supper, but we did have guests who went home with limits of walleye and some managed to find a few jumbo sunfish. While Blackduck Lake was pretty busy, the smaller lakes in the area were pretty quiet, so some of our anglers spread out and hit those lakes and were reeling in limits of sunnies.

At Upper Red, I talked to a DNR officer this afternoon who said that last week on Red it was really slow, not much on Friday with the wind gusts, but yesterday and today keeper size walleye are coming off the lake with the best fishing in the shallower water.

September is a great month in the area, the scenery is beautiful (because of the dry summer the colors are starting to change on the trees and the ground), fall fishing is typically very good, it's bear hunting season and in less than two weeks grouse hunting opens, with reports saying the grouse numbers are on the rise.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
