This Sat. on Blackduck is the annual Jaycees Fishing Contest. Just giving people a heads up to make some plans. I don't have all the specks, but I do have our tickets. grin.gif

I have to go defend my first fish that I have won the past 2 years. Those darn perch, do it to me every time!

I will get info today, and post tonight, unless Drake has all the info in the office! smile.gif

Looks like the weather is going to be great for a family event this year! laugh.gif

Door prizes and drawings throughout the Derby and the ceremony.

They said yesterday it will be to the north of the landing, near the bar. It sounded like they are already starting to mark the circle area off, and they will set up their stand in the middle. They are not going to predrill holes this year, as many people bring their fish houses and it doesn't line up; but they will be happy to drill holes for those who need them, just let them know when you hit the ice. Also, they bought a 4000 watt generator instead of a 2000 watt.

Too bad there isn't a quilt for you to win again Woodman. wink.gif I will stick with winning the auger again. Can never have too many of those.

Good luck to everyone. A little bit of snow will make for a fun drive home...

Alright, who won something this year? No quilt for you, so what was your prize this year Woodman, or did Tiff win something? Kupcho, another auger?? The other half registered a couple of walleye, but no luck on the prizes in our household. Heard there were about 30 walleye, 10 pike and a ton of perch caught. I asked for info after the contest as to what all was caught, so anxious to see that. Hope you guys did well, and had safe travels in the snow!

I caught a Minnow! Saw lots of fish but they were lock jaw during the contest. Buddies next to me caught 5 perch, but no winners. Had a nice eye come in and smell and then leave. Also saw a nice Gill, but could not talk it into bitting! Fun day, and great to fish it again. Tiff wanted to see the Woodman run for the third year in a row, but I had to retire the boots and sit on my duff! grin.gif

I had to leave my house there due to the roads. Almost hit the ditch on the way up, so I will be up Monday after work to put a new license on it and catch some perch with the kids!

Great to see all the people. I don't understand how they did the drawings for the different divisions. I guess it would have helped if I sould have caught something and actually went up to the tent!

Sorry no PRETTY QUILT this year! crazy.gif

Fun day today fishing on Bemidji managed some eye's and lots of nice perch!

I caught 2 perch and won the big goose egg. Fishing on Saturday morning was excellent. Caught a lot of fish. After catching close to our limits of perch we headed back to blackduck and dropped off the fish. It was interesting going into traffic on our way off the lake at 12. There was alot of vehicles lined up to get on the lake. I felt like a salmon swimming up stream. The turnout was excellent. Even though no prizes were won by us, it was still fun.

Good luck everyone, enjoy the snow.

fished out of the house tonight with the kids and guess what we caught. Nice 17 inch eye's. Took some pics and kissed them good bye until spring time! grin.gif

No perch out of our house but the neighbor managed to get one! The snow was not too bad, just got stuck once because I was making a loop and hit a big drift behind the house. Rocked it loose and got to the house and shoveled a parking spot and a walk way. Had to put on the new license, since it will be there until spring break!

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.
    • Wanderer
      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.
    • Wanderer
      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
