What's going on up der?

Recommended Posts



I'm heading up that direction in a couple days for some serious blastin' and castin'! Any reports to get me fired up? Ducks around? How's the fishin'? Sure would like to find a few walleyes and/or perch for a Friday night fish fry!

The past week not a lot of fishing has been going on because of the strong winds that we had...winds were gusting up to 40 mph, so pretty rough on the open water. In fact our guests over the weekend kept the boats in the lot and headed out for some grouse hunting. The week before talked to some duck hunters who hit Blackduck's west side and said that they had decent luck (sorry, we're not duck hunters). Hopefully now with the calmer days we can get back out on the lakes. If we were going to hit Blackduck, we'd start out around the bars in about the 8-12' depths using a float tipped with a minnow doing a drift or a slow troll. Weekend forecast, Friday sunny and 43, Saturday and Sunday a chance of snow, highs in the upper 30's lows in the upper 20's. Good luck to you!

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
