Fishing and Hunting

1 post in this topic

The fishing in the Blackduck area continues to do very well...has anyone been hitting the water? We were out the other day for a little over two hours and headed off the lake around noon with some walleye, some sunfish and a couple of perch. We were fishing the drop offs, doing a very slow troll, with a floater off the bottom tipped with a night crawler. Anglers are finding the walleye, sunnies and perch in varying depths, some more shallow and others in the 12 to 18' depths. The smaller lakes in the area continue to produce good size panfish and walleye are also starting to hit now that the water temps are cooling down, as well as some good reports starting to come in from my bass fishing friends hitting the weedbeds.

Only one bear that I know of that came through here over the weekend, with one guest shooting a 222 pounder. One thing that a couple of the bear hunters have said was that they have seen quite a few grouse while out in the woods, so that's good news as grouse opens this weekend. The leaves are really changing and a few are dropping, so that's about two weeks ahead of schedule, so we'll see what the grouse hunters say over the weekend.

      Fished ALL day with Mike. Started out good with a couple doubles on pike but slowed way down. Ended up with three walleyes, eight pike and about 30 bass. Couldn't mark many today whereas on Saturday I marked lots of fish. All on soft plastics. Today's video link Mike can catch em without crawlers video

      Fished about 3 hours this afternoon. Had 7 bites and missed them all. Tried bigger hooks on the jig and hooked minnows through the mouth out the back of the head.  Good solid strikes too but no luck. I'll try lindys and some lighter jigs tomorrow to see if that helps

      My wife and I fished Friday and Saturday.  Friday we got out around noon, fished shallow rocks (15 to 22ft), mid-depth reef (15 to 28ft), and shallow sand flats (8 to 20ft).  Bite was slow to non-existent, wind was strong and fierce at 18 to 24mph.  Boat control was tough and we ended the day about 4pm.  Told my wife the sacrifice was not worth the excitement.   Saturday was a different story.  Calm with some sun.  Got out by 10am and started out fishing shore rocks (15 to 28ft) and picked up a couple.  Around noon moved to deeper reefs and bang we found fish, nice ones too.  We were trolling very slowly, i.e. 0.1 to 0.3 mph until we marked and caught fish.  Then we'd anchor up on them until the bite went away.  Ended the day 3 short of our walleye/sauger limit.   Talked with others indicating the bite on Thursday was very good, Friday was tough, and Saturday was a bit better.  We took the boat to the dealer for YE service, so we are done for the year. ...oh and got all three snowmobiles started too.  This was a first.
