Nice Weather + Good Fishing = Great Fun!  The fishing in ND and SD have been very good as usual, and the weather has cooperated for some outstanding fishing! From Devils Lake, Lake Sakakawea, and the Glacial Lakes of NE South Dakota, they’ve all been producing.  I’ve been on all three and had some great fishing for walleyes, smallmouth bass, panfish, and some good looking northern pike!  The Devils Lake fishing report is very good.  Consistent catches of “eater” size walleyes and some catch and release necessary, which is always nice. Tactics continue to be predominately trolling bottom bouncers and spinners, but trolling crankbaits is working as well. The fish have moved a bit deeper now, with good catches in the 15-30′ range.  Colors – white and chartreuse have been consistent. Pike action has slowed a bit, but we can find a few larger fish on our trolling runs.  Overall the fishing is excellent and will remain into late summer, so call today and lets have some fun! Lake Sakakawea is absolutely excellent fishing right now!  Please call me for a trip! Great average size and these fish are fighting so hard, they’ll give a smallmouth a run for its money!  Ottertail County, MN is where I’m headed this weekend to guide for a few days and wrangle some walleyes.  Fishing has been good in MN, with nice catches on weed lines and some deep rock structures. This area is a variety of smaller lakes that produce not only walleyes, but great bass fishing, nice pike, and some scrappy bluegills!  Please call for open dates and some great fishing!

Anyone interested in fishing Lake Sakakawea, the bite is absolutely incredible and these walleyes are fighting so hard I had to use some heavier line!  Call and plan a trip with me out west and you won’t be disappointed! I fish the central portion of the lake near Indian Hills or Deepwater Bay.  I’ve found this area is very consistent in mid-summer and finding fish that know one has bothered is one of the perks to this pristine fishery!  Like I said, these fish fight so hard and are so healthy, you have to see it for yourself. Tactics will be trolling and a great lesson on using your electronics to find and catch fish!  I have a few dates open for late August, September, and October, so come join the fun!
