Black Dog Mountain

9 posts in this topic

On the evening of the 25th of May, we fished for flatties until 2:30 am. We were with in eye shot of the park from a boat. There was more traffic down there at night and it brought a little suspicion to my brother in-law and I. There were 4x4 trucks running up and down shore in the woods. They would stop and meet another truck by shore. They would stay there for about 5 to 10 minutes and leave. This happened many times through out night. I figured kids partying, but my brother in-law joked about it possibly being sick "o"'s.

Less than a week later, I had to laugh. My brother in-law was right.

I also got a funny feeling when we were launching at 35w bridge. It was right before dark and about 3 or 4 groups of men with flash lights would "butt" through launch area while we were waiting to launch our boat. Also allot of parking going on down at launch even when we came in for the night. The cops would chase them off.

We had a similar concern up in Elk River with Babcock Park on Mississippi for past 5 years. ER finest have pretty much run them out now.

I figured they all went to Black Dog park grin.gif.

What a great set of mug shots in that article. Course, if they hadn't bathed for a month or two so they smelled a bit and carried an old rod, they could have passed as catfisherman and not gotten caught for months!!! grin.gif

Sweet Pic Dark! I searched around and found the image online and have printed out a poster to hang at my desk.

"Blackdog Mountain" that cracks me up everytime. grin.gif

No, you cannot have my rock. Your find will come one of these days, and probably where you least expect it. I'd suggest searching somewhere other than Blackdog though. cool.gif

Well, down on MN Sat. night (June 9th). No action we could see of from boat. A total 360 from what we saw before the bust. Black dog road was calm also. Not as much traffic. The cops have slowed it down for now, or maybe the guys who got caught wives wont let them out any more grin.gif.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
