Just wanted to be the "lucky guy" to post #1000 on the Blackduck board smile.gif Here's hoping the fishing hangs in there for all of you a little north of me...noticed a dramatic slowing down on Cass due to the recent storms. Good Luck! Ken

Ken, You got me looking at the forum total posts now. Thanks darn you. smile.gif Sort of like getting the last shot out of the bottle for free. Looks like Gals Luv to fish is approaching 1000 soon. Might have to claim that goal number incognito under an alias. Do you fish the Duck much? Ice fish? Fished 6/21-6/28 for the first time and did well. Sure looks like a good hardwater lake. Anyone? can it be luck?

Luck...The Duck is one of those lakes I'm always gonna fish but haven't haad the pleasure to yet. I've fished and hunted alot of lakes on the scenic (39) and I have a place on Cass and in the winter I darn near live on Red (according to my wife). Maybe this year? Tough deal having so many beautiful lakes in such a small area. hehehehe But it gives a guy a good goal... to hit em' all! smile.gif Good Luck! Ken

Blackduck lake is my favorite lake to ice fish on. Walleye, perch, northern and the occasional crappie. There are a lot of real nice fish in the lake. If you haven't tried Blackduck in the winter, I highly recommend it!
That a good goal Labs4me. Hit em all. I always say I'm going to do that too, but I always get caught up with the lakes I do best on. Then I try learn everything about that lake too. ahhh...... so many choices, so little time.

Three years Blackduck has been on the must fish list. Finally did it, and was not let down. Weather put a damper on things,but when all was "right",it was GREAT. I was able to learn the lake spending a couple hours driving around and getting familiar with it. An option less available in the winter. Marked in several good and prospective winter spots. The fish are healthy,large and abundant. I too spend most of my time on Red and winni, hard not to with the fish you know that are in these lakes. Blackduck definitly will be a stop this winter. Any info on access to this lake in winter? Plowed trails etc. P.S. Kupcho, are you just east of town? Seen a road with your name on it. Thought about you as I drove by. can it be luck?

Labs~Was wondering who would get the Big 1,000! Canitbeluck~Blackduck is a great ice fishing lake, with the walleyes hitting well starting at early ice in December and the jumbo perch bite really kicks in hot in early March, definitely worth your giving it a try! The access in the winter is at the public access, there's no one that does the plowing on the lake so it is one that you want to be careful on during early and late ice~not like Upper Red where you have the access owners plowing the roads and marking the thin spots. Like Labs said, there's so many great lakes in the area, just had one couple who was up for the week, and were up a couple of weeks ago~what they did was make a list of lakes and started working on hitting those lakes~they didn't hit them all, but have found some that are their favorites now!

Russ and Judy~we're in the process of moving things over, FINALLY! Now I'm trying to figure out where to move that bathroom lightswitch so you won't be able to find it, they put it in too easy of a spot in here! Yep, Mike's ready to konk out in his chair and I'm just trying to figure out what to do first! Going through fishing withdrawals, with all the stuff going on around here don't think we've been on the lakes for nearly two weeks. We'll be looking forward to seeing you folks-it'll be time for a "snap fizz" grin.gif

can it be luck. Yeah I'm east of town about 11 miles. I love the area up there. But still, too many lakes too little time. I might try winnie this weekend with a little blackduck mixed in.
Talk to you later.

      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.

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.
    • Caleb9
      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

      Has anyone fished the Rum River between Onamia and the Wayside landing around this time of year before? I'm looking to take a trip with the kayak over labor day, but wanted to make that stretch would be deep enough to float (I'm ok with occasionally dragging the kayak, but I don't want to take my girlfriend on a 9 mile hike in ankle deep water), and that there'd be a realistic chance to hook into some good smallies. I will be doing strictly catch and release, I just want to get out and have some topwater fun. I had heard from some that the stretch of river in question may be better in June, so I wasn't for sure.    If that stretch of river is no good, is there another that you'd recommend?   I appreciate any help.

      On the south end...  Walleye fishing has been good all summer and is still strong.  Lots of limits of walleyes along with some big fish being caught.  Lake levels continue to drop thankfully.  Boat ramps are open and charters / guides continue to be on fish. Drifting spinners still producing.  Hammered gold, pink, orange, glow white, glow red or a combo of some of these colors working well.  Usually a two or three hook harness with just a few inches of crawler off of the back hook.  Good success jigging for walleyes.  This technique usually slows down in August, but this year it is still working great.  Using a frozen emerald shiner is the go to. Big walleyes being found, as a rule, over deep mud.  Jigging, spinners and crankbaits are all catching the big fish.   Nice eaters still set up in 15-20' outside both gaps on the south end of the lake as well as numerous areas of Big Traverse Bay.   Lots of anglers running north if conditions allow.   On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye, sturgeon and smallmouth bass reports from the Rainy River.  Water levels continue to drop.   Shoreline breaks, current breaks, weed edges and holes holding a mixed bag. Sturgeon anglers are reporting good numbers of fish.  Putting in a couple of days normally results in some success.  Holes and flats or saddles just off of the current good areas to look at. Up at the NW Angle...  Lots of walleyes along with a mixed bag is the norm.  Some anglers fishing MN waters, others boating into Ontario waters from the Angle and fishing there.  Good reports across the board. Angle resorts are located in MN right on the border.  Checking in with Canada Customs and being vaccinated is not needed if boating from the U.S. to Canada and not touching land, docks, anchoring, mooring or exchanging goods or services.   Little Traverse Bay (large open water east of Little Oak Island) still holding good numbers of walleyes over deep mud. Typical summer spots are producing.  Sunken islands, neck down areas with moving water and points.  With 14,552 islands, lots of places to fish. Muskie anglers reporting fish have been active with good numbers being caught. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air (fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      I have been out four times this season since mid July.  I caught some smaller ones the first couple trips, but Saturday I finally got into some larger fish with my Father.  The bigger ones are tiger muskies in the mid 30 inch range.  I had another one on that made these look small.  We got a good look at it when it surfaced and spit the hook with a head shake.  Appeared to be 45+ inches, which is enormous for a hybrid.
    • gimruis
      I saw a fair amount of wood ducks and teal in the Rum River a couple weeks ago when I was floating it for smallmouth bass.  More so than usual.   I hear ya on the ducks though.  There just isn't nearly as many as there used to be, which is why I stopped hunting them.  Hard to justify the time investment and scouting that is required when it only produces a few ducks per season.  I used to harvest about 35/season just 10 years ago too.
