Brad Grevengoed With Some Of This Week's CatchImage title

Warm weather finally here with highs in the 80's and the north wind has quit. The creeks are stained up again and this seems to change daily. Water temperature is still in the low 70's but that will change soon. A lot of fish are being brought in and the best bite is in the early AM on topwater. Many crappie are being caught but most of them throw backs and are about 1/2 inch short. Catfishing is excellent and walleye fishing is picking up. Blackburns is nearly full and most people are catching fish. People are helping other people and that is the way we like it. Blackburns is the fun place and we will not charge you too much. Check prices before you book. 1-800-635-0526

Nice Walleye Bink.Image title

Debbie Garrett with a good one. Welcome back Debbie.Image title

The wind has been coming from the northwest and is keeping the temperatures down to the low to mid 70's. When it shifts to the south it will start to get very warm and the water will warm fast. The top water bite for stripers, bass, hybrids and white bass starts before sunrise and does not last very long. It should be getting longer by now. The surface temperature is in the low 70's and the water clarity is perfect for fishing. There is not as much pollen but there is still some moss for some reason. The moss sure is not caused by elevated water temperatures. I am not seeing nearly as many shad next to the bank so their spawn must be nearing the end but there are several near Blackburns Dock. Martins and Linius are back and crappie fishing. Jack and Debbie Garrett are trolling umbrellas and catching stripers and hybrids. Blackburns still has three cabins empty so come on down. Jim, Marlene and Michael are also back and are working on those pan fish. Kent and Sheila Myers just checked in. Scuba Steve caught a giant flathead and a 5-lb. channelcat on his trot line and released them in Tom Kelly's trophy pond. Bink is on the walleye and Harvey is on the crappie. Life is good and the weather is better and the garden and my chicks are growing. Who could ask for more?1-800-635-0526

Sunny and nice for the next several days. Fishing is improving everyday. Lake rising very slowly and is at 553.87 with a few hours of generation in the afternoon. Surface temperature is 68 this morning. Creeks are pretty clear. Good to be alive. Come on down. 1-800-635-0526. Pool will be open soon.Prices are low. Saw two Bald Eagles, One Golden eagle, three turkeys and four deer on the way to the dock yesterday. Gold Finches, Bluebirds, hummingbirds and Purple Martins are everywhere.

These two are swimming around in Tom Kelly's Trophy Pond. We give another to cabin #8 for dinner. Life is Good Here at Blackburns resort and Boat rental. Image title

Water temperature 70. Lake level 553.8 and rising slowly with a few hours of generation in the late afternoon. Bluegill biting very well on brush piles. Morning top-water bite just at sunrise. Does not last long. Crappie picking up. Flatheads biting as well as I have seen them in 21-years on trot lines on small bluegill. Weather is great. Come on down. 1-800-635-0526. We help each other catch fish and we do not charge you too much and not for boat stalls. Great time of year. If you are nearly the only customer where you are staying you are paying too much. I would never stay anywhere with no covered porches or in a duplex.
