Planning my yearly visit to the lake in June. If you're looking for the elusive Sheepshead you better get there before me! Just hope those pesky bait stealing Wallys are getting fished out!!!

One thing I've been trying figure out is the secret to the big sheepshead in the Duck. My buddies and I guess that they hatch at about four pounds since (believe it or not) that is smallest one I've ever seen caught there.

Good luck!!

Hmmmm....Thought I was the sheepshead master angler. You're right sakman, 4 lbs is small for that lake. Another thing I've noticed is that they are a fierce fighter in the water but after you get off the hook you can lay em in the boat and they barely move. I like to toss em back after an hour or so and watch him swim away. Hearty fish indeed!

Well maybe I'm exaggerating a tad bit.

Mypoleisbroken~Threw back my sheephead last night and told it to hang on until you get here grin.gif Over the weekend there were quite a few boats out on the Duck, with most congregated in the same general area~some catching limits and really slow for others. Did see a couple of Jumbo sunnies come through the cleaning room last night that came out of Blackduck, just like the crappies they're not abundant in the lake but when you get into them you're really pleased with the size.

I will be in Blackduck sometime 7-5, I'll be there for a week! What can I expect to catch on Blackduck, and what are the best ways to catch them? Thanks for any info!

Hey Mypoleisbroken~some sheephead on Blackduck are calling your name. Tonight caught four and some guests who were out fishing caught some with the biggest in the 10 to 12 pound range. Everyone threw them back so Come and get em'

Barry G., hard to say what's going to be happening on Blackduck then, the bite hasn't kicked in hot and heavy yet, maybe it's waiting for you! Looked at some notes from last year and around the Fourth it was catching a few here and there, then the week after that it the bite kicked in really strong with many folks coming back with limits, Last year at that time it was earlier (5 to 7pm) and in the 10' - 20' depths.

Good luck to you!

Blackduck Lake 7/5 - 7/11
Not much going on until 7/10, finally got into a few fish, my son caught a 33" northern and the first walleye of the week. 7/11 we got 5 decent walleyes and about 8 perch. Total brought home...1 northern, 6 walleye, and 20 perch. We had a GREAT time! I truly think that my son and I caught more fish than everyone else at the resort we were staying at combined... That's not saying a lot...but we all had a good time. It was nice to meet The Drakes! I hope I get to stop in again sometime! We left Blackduck at 4:30 am and reached home at 6:30 pm alot better time than I thought we would make. Take Care !

Barry~It was nice to meet you too! That's a pretty decent size northern coming out of the Duck! We drove by Blackduck on Friday night but didn't see anyone out there?? So you did do a straight through drive home..long day! But then you got a day to kick back before going back to reality!

Yes, I drove straight through, my wife didn't even offer to drive any. I came home down through Iowa on the Avenue of the Saints...that really cut out some time for me. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, luckily I got plenty of sleep Friday night...that helped alot! Take Care!

Fished Blackduck again this year for our 6th anniv., not as good as last year. I caught one nice walleye and the wife caught a perch. It was a great day to be on the lake. We fished Sat. the 12th from 9-12:30pm.

Hey Woodman! Sorry to hear the fishing wasn't the same as last year, wasn't it your anniversary that we got that pic of you and Tiff with those walleyes? You'll have to pop in next time you hit the Duck and say hey~happy anniv. to you and Tiff! Hey, has your dad been out lately?

Dad has only been out a few times pretty slow. A lot of little ones and lots of perch. His boat is at the cabin right now catching the water that falls from the sky. I called me tonight to go and empty it out.

When are you going to build that deck. I will offer my hammer and fingers to help.

Hey Woodman! Thanks for the offer on the deck building~I should've logged on earlier! This past weekend was "deck" weekend, had a brother from Indiana call late last week and say he was on his way to help build the deck this weekend and the local brother came over ~can't turn down help~ so we got it whipped out. Now it's trying to decide whether to start on the renovation of the new motel rooms or painting the outside of the motel..the fun just never ends! (Think we need to get the boat on the water so we can get more water on the outside than the inside like your dads!) Thanks for the offer smile.gif

Thats great that you got that deck done drake. I was out to lake of the woods on friday and did very well. Fished blackduck on saturday evening and did okay. Got there around 7 and the bite was really good and by 8pm they were done biting. We missed a lot of fish and landed 6 walleyes. We parked on the school and an hour later they were gone. No perch and no SHEEPHEAD.
Good luck

      I’ve only seen teal one morning on the river.  Absolutely nothing in all the evenings I’ve been out.  Hard to get excited about hunting around home. 😒

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples

      Been searching for teal with hazel and Finn. We seen a few but not any numbers anywhere. I think I got a pond that will be good as it was full of rice.

      The essay for international exams such as SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS does not require literary talent, but rather a mastery of the technology of its writing.   Almost any international test for admission to a foreign university contains a section devoted to writing an essay. Is homework market legit? There is a general approach to essay writing for standardized tests, which includes five main steps.   DETERMINING THE TYPE OF ESSAY First, you need to determine what type of essay you are required to write. Standardized tests more often ask you to write a "problem essay," when you need to present an opinion on a given problem, and an "argumentative essay," when you need to analyze the arguments presented against or in defense of a particular point of view.   DETERMINING THE LENGTH OF AN ESSAY The length of the text affects the complexity of the essay, the number of paragraphs. A basic three-paragraph essay consists of 300-500 words. It is referred to as a "short" essay in standardized tests. A "long" essay is a minimum of 500-800 words and consists of five paragraphs.   Each paragraph should contain at least three sentences. It is important to understand that it is not the length of the typed text that is assessed, but the structure and content of the essay.   FORMULATION OF THE MAIN IDEA, THESIS AND ARGUMENTS The main idea is what the essay is about. The thesis is what the author thinks about the main idea of the essay. Arguments are logical statements in support of the author's thesis. Each of these elements should consist of at least one sentence.   If you put these elements in order, you will get an introduction. You can use the wording from the text of the assignment as the main idea.   If the text of the assignment is formulated as a question, in most cases, the thesis should be formulated as an answer to the question posed.   STATEMENT OF THE MAIN BODY OF THE ESSAY In an essay of up to three thousand words, one paragraph each is allocated for the introduction and conclusion. The rest of the essay consists of the main body. For example, in an essay of five paragraphs, the main part should consist of three paragraphs, i.e. one paragraph for each argument.   In a three-paragraph essay, only one paragraph remains to present all three arguments, which makes it even more difficult to write. After a brief outline of the main body, one introductory sentence should be written for each paragraph.     The introductory sentences tell the reader what the paragraph is about. This is followed by arguments that justify the essence of the introductory sentence and examples (a quote or a life case). The introductory sentence, argument, and example together make up one paragraph in the main body.   Since the arguments have already been presented in the introduction, there is no need to use semantic transitions in the main body - all that remains is to set them out in the order in which they are presented in the introduction.   CONCLUSION The conclusion is usually the most difficult part of the essay. The conclusion should include a paraphrase of the thesis in light of what was said in the main body, i.e., an explanation of how the arguments support the thesis put forward, and a final sentence that draws a line under the main idea of the essay.   The clearer and more definite the thesis statement is, the easier it is to write the conclusion. Difficulties in writing the conclusion means that most likely the thesis statement is too unclear. In this case, you can try to rewrite the introduction and then go back to the conclusion.   GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS The main recommendation for writing essays for standardized tests is to quickly sketch out an initial version of the essay. If you run out of time, at least you will have a finished, albeit imperfect, product.   In any case, a finished essay is always graded higher than an unfinished one. If you have some time left, however, you can easily improve the essay with small changes.   Resources: How to write an essay What are essays Essay structure, writing style. What is an essay?

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.
