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!

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
