Hey i live up at lake of the woods and i generally come down to blackduck area for summer pan fish fishing. Im thinking about driving down in the following week and looking at gilstad lake.

With the warmer temps the past week our anglers are doing a lot more hole hopping on the area lakes and doing very well at the numerous lakes for panfish. This weekend has been a very productive with good numbers of panfish (perch, sunnies and crappies~although better luck with the crappies in the later afternoon hours) coming through the fish cleaning shack. This weekend folks have really spread out and hit many different lakes in the area, with the main mode of travel for our folks being wheelers and sleds. With the warmer temps the snow is decreasing on the lakes and making travel a little easier, but we will see what happens this week as the temps are predicted around the 40 degree mark. Perch bite has been decent on the Duck in the deeper depths and since the fishing derby last weekend travel is a little easier going out of the public access where it was plowed; although there still are two plowed paid accesses on Blackduck.

I was fishing gilstad with slicker on saturday. We started fishing around 1 and at first all we could find was tiny perch, tons of them. We tried some of the deep 40 foot holes and ended up marking a couple things on the vexilar that werent acting like the perch, so i think they were crappie. Then we tried really shallow and ended up with more perch and a bass. We ended up setting up for the evening in 40 feet on the main lake side of the island/point. We started seeing little schools of suspended fish and ended up getting a 10-11 inch crappie, and some smaller ones, along with a sunfish. Then the vexilars went crazy and we marked tons of little lines slowly coming higher and higher of the bottom, another fisherman said bloodworms? Whatever they were we didnt catch or see a fish the rest of the night.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?

      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
