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!

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
