Heading to Blackduck area

Recommended Posts

Doalhe

Going to be in blackduck area the end of the month. Does anyone have any hot leads to what lakes the big panfish are found on and what area of the lakes to fish them, how deep etc. Also would like tip on what lakes to find the nice perch and walleye on for evening bite. Wouldn't mind catching walleye during the day either!

Yeah must be the size that the chearleader throw at the homecoming football games. You know the plastic ones the local banks brand? Anyways, I was there last year and we did catch some nice perch, just not the size of any football I've ever thrown.

The perch bite is going good the two weeks, seeing some limits. Today one angler came back after fishing for the afternoon, he said he didn't move around much (bit cold, with windchill below zero). He came back with him limit of perch, the 3 largest ones were a tich over 12.5" and a fat body, so nice lil "footballs". The perch have been really shallow the last couple of weeks, with walleyes in the 14-18' depths. Good luck!

Hey thanks Drake. I think we stayed at your place last year. We tried to again this year but you were booked on the weekend we come up. I hope next year we can get our reservation in earlier cause you cant beet your price and comfort. The fish cleaning house you have is perfect.

We our staying however at the white birch resort. Looks like a nice place. Alot more money, but the number of guys we have coming will help offset that. Still no where as affordable as you. Any thing you can share about the white birch resort? Please keep in touch, we will be up Feb. 3,4 and 5. We like to fish large panfish and perch. If walleye bite is hot, we would do that also.

Thanks

Monte and Sandy S will take good care of you at the resort. I knew Monte for a long time before he bought the place. He knows the Duck pretty well and will point you in the right direction as far as fishing destination.

Anyone got a tip on big crappies & sunnies near black duck? A week from today we look to fill the pails. Perch would be nice to get on also. Anyone ever catch any nice fish on Big lake? If so please help with where to go on the lake and a depth.

Hey Doalhe, thanks for your comments about us! Appreciate it! As for Big Lake, it's still pretty early in the season for that lake-better near ice out. We did have someone try it last week and they only brought a few fish back to the fish cleaning room. Good luck on your fishing trip!

Went up the first weekend of Feb. Stayed at nice resort on Black Duck Lake. It was the White Birch Resort. Monte and Sandy the owners were very pleasant. The cabin we stayed in was quite rustic and very affordable for 12 guys to stay in. The resort has a few really nice modern cabins also, just a little out of our league as far as affordability. Fish cleaning house was small. The drake motel should be a model for how a fish cleaning house should be! Especially when you have a group of people.

Fishing really stunk so the fish cleaning house didnt really matter. Perch this year were in 6-9 ft of water. Sunfish on Rabideau and Pamoosh(not sure how to spell)was horrible.Last year we did well in 17-20 ft of water for sunfish, crappie and perch. The winter is differnt this year from weather temp, to lack of snow, to where the fish are.

We went to upper Red on Sat evening. Between 6 guys, we got 2 walleye and 2 perch. Pretty quiet. Stopped at pleasant lake on the way home in a town south of walker, got some really nice sunfish and a few huge crappies and bass were in the bay also.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
