Also sorry to have missed you. I picked up some good info at your place. I imagine you heard that Brainerd is changing their fishing derby to the 9th also. I know a lot of folks who were talking about entering both contects. Is there any talk up that way about postponing for a week to avoid any conflict? Just wondering. I think they should have checked to see if any other area fishing contests were set for the 9th before changing theirs.

No Raven I hadn't heard that Brainerd was chaning their contest to the 9th...I also went to a Blackduck C & C meeting yesterday and the Blackduck contest was brought up but no one mentioned anything about Brainerd.

I will make a couple of calls tomorrow...maybe the Jaycees (sponsers of BD contest) have heard that, but I'll make sure. THANKS for the info...I'll let you know what I find out!

I just spoke to someone from the Blackduck Jaycees regarding the date change of the Brainerd contest to the same date as the Blackduck contest. The Jaycees are going to try to meet by Monday to decide what to do...obviously it's not good having the two contests the same day as many folks do enter both contests.
The Blackduck contest has been scheduled for quite awhile now and I know that they have put a lot of time and effort into promoting it for February 9th....too bad the other folks didn't check before changing theirs to the same date. The Jaycees will be giving me a buzz on Monday to let me know what the outcome of their meeting is.

Great - I hope it can be changed so we can attend both of them. I did receive an e-mail from the Brainerd Jaycees stating that if we can't participate on Feb. 9th that we could return the tickets and receive a voucher for next year. If Blackduck doesn't change, I going for the voucher and do Brainerd next year.

      Hi all - new to the forum.  I live in NE Wyoming and am an avid fly fisherman.  While I love fishing for trout out west, warm water species on the fly is a blast.   Me and a buddy are headed out this coming weekend for a BWCA trip.  We have a couple of days on the front end of the trip to fish.  I'm planning on towing my drift boat from NE Wyoming and have spot picked out in North Dakota to float for smallies on the fly.  I'm looking at trying to get an additional float in somewhat near Ely before our entry into the Boundary Waters.  It's a 16' drift boat and doesn't really draft much.  I'm planning on having a small trolling motor just in case I need some additional power.  Looking mainly to target smallmouth and pike.   I've looked at a few areas to float, but wanted some advice.  I have a few options that I think meet what I'm looking for:   1) St. Louis River near Hoyt Lakes.  Looked like there are couple of access points to launch and take out below Hwy 110 2) Cloquet River - Hwy 7 to the mouth. 3) Bigfork River - From Ivan Crawford to Reedy Flats   Can anyone provide any advice these or provide any other recommendations?   Thanks in advance!

      I have been doing pretty good bass fishing locally.  A lot of numbers, but lacking in really big quality fish that I have caught the last two seasons.  Biggest I could catch this season so far is 18 inches.

      Welcome to the forum. Downriggers work best for suspended fish in deep water. Most river's are shallow and rocky. If you want to fish the bottom in a river a bottom bouncer might be best to not lose a lot of expensive gear. Imo. Good luck.

      I have a Cannon Optima and Iam anxious to try downriggers for walleye.  There is a bottom tracking feature on Optima.  I think most walleyes are close to bottom so I think it is a good tactic.  I am, however, nervous about using Fishhawk XD4 with on river.  A screwup would really be expensive!

      i'm not real involved yet. my first meeting. long story but my parents belonged to it years ago. after the cabin lake had the 2 consecutive years of severe winterkill i dogged the heck out of the fisheries people in grand rapids.🤭 i found out through the watershed assoc they talked them into restocking sunfish and bass into the lake. they did that this past june. so i figured for the 15 bucks join!!!!!   my next battle is with the township......🤣 trying to get them to grade part of our road going into the cabin!!!!! i already sent the letter but havent heard from them yet. since i've retired from being a union thug.......i gotta pick a few battles to keep my skills sharp!!!!!!!!🤪🤭👍

      That's awesome that you are involved in that! I hope you have a good trip up!

      Definitely in the dog days of summer. Catching a few walleye here and there on the river. Hasn't been too hot which makes me hopeful for an early fall fishing season. I'll post more when the fish turn their feed bags on and the leaves start falling. Until then I'll just work more and get winter gear ready

      Word to the wise. Never click on a Bot post with a highlighted link!  Unless you want cuddies on your system! 😛
