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.

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.

      Greetings fishermen and women! Its great being back in the swing of things and better yet in the boat! Both the MN and Ontario season is now open and fishing has been great! Staffers here at Flag Island Resort have been busy getting ready for the upcoming summer months with some deep cleaning, window washing, grounds work and remodeling!   On the Minnesota side anglers have been catching nice saugers, walleyes and perch. Soon the crappies should be finding their way into the shallows around Angle Inlet and other small creeks and the walleyes have spawned out over the past couple of weeks. With the warmer temps that started out last week anglers were finding fish in shallower water between 5-17 feet now, with the cooler temps, rain and winds most of the fish have been pushed deeper into the 16-26 foot range. Points and reefs close to large land masses adjacent to sand and rubble have been hot locations. Anglers have found fish near Soldier’s, Little Oak, Oak Island and NW Point. The water surface temp has been in that 50-55 degree range. Right now it seems like everything is working from ¼ to 3/8 jigs to slow trolling with raps in the shallows as well as trolling spinners keeping on the move at 0.9 mph.   Over in Ontario, the walleye, sauger, crappie, perch and pike have been hungry. Perch and crappie should be spawning soon. Crappies are being caught around the 20 foot mark . Sandy bays and points have been best for the walleye and crappie bite while the perch are still caught in the rocks. Many pike have been caught in areas with current. There have been reports of a lot of smallmouth mixed in with the walleyes.  Jigging with a ¼-3/8 ounce jig has been the ticket and the water temp has been around 49-52 degrees.   We hope to see you up here soon! Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Going up on 6/3.     Just looking for water temps and reports for what the bass might be doing.     Thanks, Shack
