Flashman?? and Weekend Fishing


Recommended Posts

Flashman, how'd you do on Blackduck? Our folks had pretty good luck on the Duck this past weekend, but not as many limits coming as there were last weekend. Plenty were scanning, but not all were biting, and some of that could have to do with the constant fluxuation of the pressure since last Thursday.

The perch bite on Winni proved to be excellent this weekend for those fishing in the shallower water (10' and less), and using almost anything as long as it was tipped with a minnow (small jigs, swedish pimples and even plain hooks). The bite wasn't so great for those who used wax worms but it kicked in once a small minnow was used and over the last three days there were 13 folks who caught their limits and a large group that didn't catch their limit but the 120+ jumbo perch was more than enough for them!

Upper Red Lake proved great for some who caught their limits while others had 4 or 5 crappies apiece, but with the size they are more than happy with their catch, seeing several this weekend that were pushing the 2 pound mark. Folks were either walking out or ATV'ing through all the different access with vehicles being driven by some folks on the southshore, although now folks should really plan on bringing their fourwheelers when hitting the ice.

Blackduck was just like you said, nice perch when you could get them to bite this last weekend. Always on the flasher but not very eager to bite. No limits for us but I did manage a nice 30+ inch pike Sunday afternoon. I'm putting the ice rods and auger away this week and praying for all the ice to just go away. I don't need to be tempted anymore this year, and I just need to cast some lures. It'll be 3 weeks before I can make it back up to Blackduck, heading to Arkansas after turkey the middle of next week. I'm hopping by they I'll be able to put the boat in the water.

Fished Blackduck Sunday PM and came away with three between 9 and 12 inches. Very little traffic on the lake but lots of ice. Talked to another party coming off and they had 10 for 3 people. They also said fishing had been like that all of last week.

Graphed fish all day but very finicky bite. Definitely worth the drive though.

The fish on Blackduck are definitely worth trying for. Again, the change in the pressure did have an effect on the bite on the Duck last weekend, slowing down over what it had been earlier in the week when everything was holding pretty steady. Flashman, we had several people who said that the walleyes and northerns on Saturday were pretty active and wishing it was open season 'cause there were some really nice ones being caught! But the temps are suppose to be steady this weekend (after today's snowfall) so hopefully the pressure will stabilize and the fish will not just show up on the depth finder but in the buckets as well!

Managed to get some folks a good starting point on Winnie, even had one person call from the ice to say that was a good spot and was really amazed with the perch bite. Another local lake is really producing some nice sunfish, got a picture of one guy who is holding a 1.1 and 1.2 pounder!

Good luck on the turkey hunt! Got a lot of stuff to do once the temps warm up, but hope to have a lot of it done by opener, so stop in and maybe we can hit the open water at the same time or give you a starting point before you head out..great walleye & northern fishing out there!

      You could do Isanti to St. Francis also.  About mid way is Anderson Park that has a small sandy access.  Anderson Park to St. Francis had fewer but some bigger fish while Isanti to Anderson Park had better numbers and not as many big fish.   All upstream from Isanti to the access on Hwy 95 can be hit or miss but if you hit it, it can be good.   Up to 16’s is fairly common bit there are enough 16-20’s to not be shocked if you get one or more.   I’d never admit to this while I lived there. 😉

      Some pressure but nothing like lake fishing

      Hey thanks guys, I appreciate your input. It sounds like this float might be best to put off a year when the water is up a little higher. I'll check the gage next summer and see how it looks. I was hoping to get into some 18 to 20" fish (aren't we all), so maybe they will have moved back in there by then.   Does the stretch south of St. Francis get very much pressure on it? I'll have to give it a look.

      Little more narrow up there, if I were to do it, I'd float St Francis to Andover. Shallow yes but it's a good stretch to fish

      I fished it further south near Milaca/Princeton a couple times in late July.  It was OK then but dropping.  The second time we definitely bumped more rocks and grounded out in a couple riffles.  I use a 10 foot jon boat that can float through a couple inches of water.  We caught 15-20 smallmouth both times, but nothing over 16 inches.  I think the drought last year sent the bigger fish out of there.  It may take a few years to recover.   You can check the flow on the DNR website.  There is a live gauge right in Onamia.  Anything below 11 feet is too low for me.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/waters/csg/site.html?id=21018002

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Lol he broke a muskie drought that had started in 2006.  16 years without a legal muskie!

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.

      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.
    • Caleb9
      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay
