Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable long Fourth weekend. Temps up here in the Blackduck area were favorable to fishing and it was a great time to be on the open water (how great is it to sit on the boat, watch the eagles soar, deer come up to the shore and the loons playing..and to catch some fish!).

On Blackduck the best bet is early morning and you will find several anglers out in the early evening hitting the walleye bite. Not quite as gangbusters over the weekend as it had been (haven't seen that many limits of walleyes coming out of the lake in a long time) but still plenty of walleyes coming off the lake for those working the bars in the 7 to 12' depths using leeches. We did hit one of the lakes we like for panfish yesterday for a few hours mid day and not much luck for us, but then found out we should've been there earlier as we ran into some friends who had been out panfishing in the morning and they ended up doing very well on walleye in the 6 to 9 foot depths. The panfish have been doing fairly decent, jig tipped with wax worms or small leech working the weedlines at most of the area lakes, and I just talked to one of our guests who was dock fishing at one of the smaller lakes and he kept six nice sunnies and threw a bunch back. We haven't had the chance to make it to Upper Red Lake lately, but our guests are still getting the walleye working the 6 to 9 foot depths pulling a spinner tipped with leeches and saying that the water temps are warming up and the pike are starting to get more active!

The computer part of the Drake team has been out of state for several weeks, and am about to head out the door again, but it was good to be home and get some fishing time in and get a little something on here! Who else hit the lakes up here the last few days?

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
