Is Black Bay Froze Yet.

5 posts in this topic

Could ya guys help a college kid out and tell me if there has been any ice on Black Bay. I see that Captjohn encountered some in Rice Bay. Looking to come up this weekend and set deer stands, but Saturday morning I want to get out and do some late season duck hunting. Is there any birds still flying around. Any info would be great!

Take Care Guys!!

I saw a few ducks flying around the last couple days. Don't really pay much attention though as I am usually looking at the GPS or depth finder.

Went looking for ducks north of causeway and rice bay area this afternoon. Most of the bays frozen a few ducks around but not realy anything like there was last week. Will be tough hunting at best.

We were duck hunting last weekend on the Canada side just north from Black Bay and had a good morning shoot. On Sunday we did have ice around the edges of the marsh but not too much. Still quite a few mallards around to our surprise. It was our first time trying for ducks on Rainy and I think we will try again next year. We fished in the afternoons with limited luck. Did better on the Northerns than the walleyes.

Good luck this weekend!

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
