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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
