Drake- Long time no post!! Just thought I would drop a line to let you know that I am still alive. We are just really busy with work and enjoying the family.

Hope all is well with the Drake team.

Hey Woodman! I was gone for a few days and still playing "catch up" and things around here have been pretty busy..but not too busy to hit the ice! Good to hear from you..it's been kinda quiet on the forum!

Fishing the past week has been in general good for most, and seeing limits coming through here last week. But it seemed to be all or nothing when it came to fishing yesterday (Saturday) at Upper Red, with many getting their limits (or just one or two shy of) and a few folks getting zero to just a couple. The bite time is in general running well from 5:30 to a little after 8pm, and some folks are lucky enough to hit an afternoon bite. One thing that is sounding good is the reports of a hot and heavy bite lasting about a half an hour (school of fish) and then slowing down but still being able to pick up some steadily after that.

Perch fishing on Blackduck Lake this past week was spotty, and the perch fishing on Winnieslowed down in a couple of spots that were pretty hot the week before, but we did have a couple of folks who managed to find some, still fishing in the 31' to 35' depth of water.

With the temps the way they are forecasted for late next week, the perch bite on Blackduck Lake should be pretty good. Last March when we had the warmer temps the perch (10"-13") were schooling up and biting good, Blackduck in the morning and Upper Red in the evening makes for a good fishing day!

Drake- Let Tiff and I know when the Perch bite is on, and we will plan for a pond and upper red trip.

Happy Fishing and Keep warm.

Hey Woodman~Had one guy who came in this morning and he said that someone that he talked to last night asked him why they weren't fishing on Blackduck this weekend as they were getting the 11"-13" perch. We haven't hit Blackduck and haven't had any of our guests who have hit it the last week, so can't vouch for it personally. With the warmer temps predicted for this week it just may be the perfect time to get over there and give it a shot. Would love to hear from someone who's been over at Blackduck and their fishing report.

Pretty busy over the weekend so didn't make it to Upper Red, but had some guys who did really well, with all five of them taking home their limits. One thing that we have noticed is that the crappies are schooling up which is making for some fun out there on the ice when the school moves through smile.gif The prime bitetime the past couple of weeks continues to be in the 5:30 to 7:30 timeframe. Have you and Tiff been to Red much lately?
