Today I was at Blackwell, Fishing Silver lake. Was catching a Couple of Largemouths in the 10 inch range off of the fishing pier by the boat landing. A guy caught a nice 16 inch Largemouth. So I went and began casting towards the island. After about 30 Minutes of trying to catch a largemouth I hooked a 20 inch walleye. After about a 45 second fight I Landed the fish. I was fishing a worm off the bottom.

it's rare to catch them but when you do it's nice. i caught a small one once but i didn't care of its size. i don't think there are many trout biting now.

I also caught one trout on the same day I caught the walleye...I've been catching at least one trout on each visit to Blackwell.

Holy crowds at Blackwell this weekend!!! I went out there on Memorial day and it was a madhouse. I caught bundles of baby largemouth, largest one was probably 12 or 13". All on leeches. One decent crappie too. I was after bluegills, but only managed a few. The lake is producing well right now.
