No luck at the contest?


Recommended Posts

We weren't lucky enough to land a winning fish at the Blackduck contest this weekend, nor did the people who we went up there with.

Raven~~did you and your granddaughter manage to win one of the prizes?

Anyone else?

Drake- My wife and I were up for the contest yesterday. We caught three perch, not lucky enough to win any prizes. Good time on the ice.

Hi Drake -
Only caught one small perch - but had a good time and the hotdogs were great smile.gif We figure it was just a trial run this year and everyone better watch out next year!! We planned to stop in, but the time was short. Will be sure to drop by the next time we are up there. Want to try for some of those walleyes one of these days. I always check out your site to see what is going on. You are doing a great job and it is much appreciated!

At least you guys CAUGHT one! Heard there were some pretty small ones being taken up to the judge's stand, but he didn't stick around and see what all came in, heard a walleye, small northern. They asked for suggestions for next year, which he will give a suggestion about the contest area.
Next year we'll be posting that you and the Mr. Drake won big prizes.

Thanks for the site comment! And don't forget to stop in if you have a chance, I'd love to meet you and he always loves talking to people about the fishing!

Drake- I weighed in a 3.3 oz perch. The third one on the board. I thought they would give out prizes for the first 10 fish at least. Owell, good day of fishing is still better than work!!!

PS. Do you know Ardell Hanson @ Northwoods Lumber? That is my DAD!!!

Hey Woodman~I was gone for a few days, I'm the computer/bookwork person, he's Tim the Toolman and the chief fisherman!

The contest was set up that the first perch to be brought in, the first walleye to be brought in and the first northern to be brought in got the cash prizes, then it went to the top 13 size fish. There's always next year right wink.gif And a day out on the lake is ALWAYS a good day!

Yep, he knows who your dad is! I figured he had to from all the receipts from there that have come across my desk!

Happy fishing!

      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!
    • smurfy
      I'm heading up sometime the last week in Aug . I joined the Jessie lake watershed assoc and they have a meeting on the 27 I want to attend.

      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! 😛
