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!

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
