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.

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?

      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.

      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.

      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.

      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH

      Anybody know if there is a pressure ridge/ice heave out in front of the Warroad Access? I know ice conditions will change throughout the coming weeks. Looking forward to getting after some pike.  The last few years there has been a pressure ridge there, last year it went from Springsteel over to Swift. And we've been up there plenty of times when there hasn't been one at all. Just curious to find out what conditions are like in that bay. Thanks!

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.
