Pan fishing in the Blackduck area is still going good, and have had a lot of fish coming through the cleaning shack the past few days. This is one of those cases where 'same thing, different day' is a good thing!

For those hitting Blackduck they are finding that there is not just one area that is a hot spot, anglers are spreading out across the lake and fishing in the 20'-24' depths and finding good numbers of perch, doing some weeding of the little guys but keeping those in the 10"-12" range, and some are lucky enough to reel in a crappie or sunnie. The other lakes in the area, and there are several great lakes, are finding good action for sunfish and crappies, even reeling in crappies in the early afternoon hours, the fish are still liking the jig tipped with a waxie presentation.

yep, I agree with the perch fishing on Blackduck. I was there. Got some nice size perch. One problem however for me.....most like ly for others(?).... I can't eat those perch on Fridays during lent (or anytime for that matter). They have "white meat" in the fillets...if you know what I mean. Every one I cleaned! ishhh!

Is it easy enough to get around with 4wd truck or is an ATV the way to go? (no snowmobile) Heading up to the cabin on Island Lake for the weekend and was thinking about hitting the Duck on Saturday.

Yeah, what is "white meat," seriously?

The "white grubs" are parisites. Some spots on blackduck the fish are thick with the grubs and other places on the lake the fish are nice and clean. Same with just about every other area lake. Winnie is really bad for spotty "white grubs" in the fillets.

Just keep hole hopping and you'll find a clean patch... Or just cook them at 350 and you'll never know the difference... eek:

Good luck

I was thinking you meant the grubs, I know what you mean, sometimes they are thick with them, but once cooked, never know they were in there...which they don't hurt anything, and if the site bothers some, you can pop them out pretty easily with the tip of your knife....

Fivebucks, couple of inches of snow the other day and some strong winds did gets some drifts going. My guys out there with 4wd yesterday and today said no problems and they didn't get stuck, but a low profile 2wd wouldn't do so hot until some of the drifts start melting down.

Thanks. We were out on Saturday and drove ATV's just to play it safe. We could see plenty of fish on the camera including a monster bluegill but not too many takers. We did get a handful but most fish were not interested and we tried throwing everything at them. My wife and I got only 3 fish but my buddy was able to coax 17 perch into the bucket (he fished longer though is my excuse). Still a fun day.

When the front moved in it did slow the bite down on the Duck on Friday and Saturday, and our anglers found a better bite out deeper than what we've been fishing. Now that temps and the pressure is stabilizing the bite is kicking back in, yesterday was the best in the last three days with several jumbos being reeled in, so most folks are back at it again today, and with temps pretty stabil this week it should just get better. It's pretty frustrating to see those fish down there and not get them to take the bait!

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
