Now that Fishing Opener is over, the temps have warmed up & the winds have calmed down (through the weekend the temps are to be in the mid to upper 70's & winds less than 10mph). But Opener still ended up being pretty good, although the winds made it a bit chilly! The main lakes that was hit by our anglers for walleye was Blackduck and Upper Red. Blackduck Lake pumped out good number of walleyes for those fishing in the 12-15' depths- while anchored and jigging the walleye ...bite just wasn't happening, but trolling the bars produced good numbers of quality fish. Upper Red also produced limits of walleye for our guests, with the opposite presentation than Blackduck..moving seemed to scare the walleye but anchored and slip bobber fishing produced very good quantities of fish. On Red most of our guests were starting out in the 6' depths and found that slower, but moving to the 10' depths produced the limits.

Picked up enough for a fish fry on Saturday on Island.  Going to head up again this Saturday to see if they may be snapping a little better.

They were biting worse than on opener this past weekend.  Fished 7 hours for one walleye to eat with only one other released.  Found a decent bite after sunset to pick up a few more so it was still a good day on the water.  I think it was too nice on Saturday.

Was out on Blackduck last night for a few hours. Only caught one hammer handle pike. Saw others catch a few Walleye but it was pretty slow. Beautiful night though.

Heading up next week to fish black duck. New to the area. If it’s slow on Blackduck, are there any other lakes close by to hit up? Last year my two boys and myself finally got into the walleye by verticals jigging leeches off humps. Hope that works again, it was pretty cocsistant for a few days. A lot of short ones in there, but enough keepers to eat too.

Lots of options close by Blackduck.  It's about 40 minutes to Red Lake.  Lots of smaller lakes within 20 minutes including some awesome panfish lakes.

There are some sleepers of you are willing to do an adventure.  But some easier access lakes that have good panfish populations close to Blackduck are Gilstad, Gull, Rabideau, Pimushe and Turtle River.  Several of these have special regs for gills.
