Black Lake Report: 1/4

Recommended Posts

nmitchell17

Got out on Black Lake today because I figured I could get out of the wind on the west side. Moved all over the west side punching holes and dropping the camera. Tried deep and shallow and finally found a TON of fish suspended 5 feet up in 20 feet of water. Fished there from 2:30-6 and caught 2 crappies. Tried everything I had but they would barely even look at my bait. The school I was over was mostly crappies with a few sunnies and perch mixed in. They were very negative and barely moving.

What were you using? I almost always limit out on finesse plastics. I seldom use crappie minnows anymore.

I usually do really well on waxies on Black, until about dusk, then its plastics and/or minnows. I was on Crystal bay a few days ago, and you really had to lift your jig 5-10 feet up the water column in order for them to take it. Once you lifted it, and they wanted it, they would dart super fast and take it.

I attribute the tough bite sunday to high pressure. We had set lines down that produced a few fish, but jigging spoons or small jigs/waxies/minnow heads enticed more fish to bite. We saw the same thing, the fish were lethargic, but if you kept jigging they would be more likely to bite.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
