The fishing is getting good and my guiding is ramping up!  I just returned from some guiding on the Glacial Lakes of South Dakota and we had some good fishing.  It took us time to put it together, but we found some stained shallow water with lots of active walleyes and white bass!  Casting Northland Tackle Mimic Minnows and white twister tails on a 1/4oz jig head was the ticket.  Fish looked healthy, happy, and more active each day we fished.  Finding some stained water or even off-colored water made the difference, because the water is very clean and clear on several lakes we tried.  Smallmouth are active on Waubay Lake and white bass were plentiful.  This makes for some great action and rod bending fun.  We managed limits of walleyes, but we worked hard for them, mixed in or adjacent to the off-colored water and schools of bass.  The spring shallow casting bite is some of my favorite fishing of the year!  You have many fish follow to the boat and several bites a day you are likely to see in real time.  What’s more exciting than that!  Although I didn’t fish this presentation, I feel slip bobbers would produce some nice fish right now as well.  I have some clients coming soon to fish slip-bobbers and we will have some great fishing! It looks like a bit of a cold front the next few days, but we received about 1″ of rain and boy did we need that!  Sunday and Monday I guide on the Missouri river south of Bismarck, ND and I’m looking forward to that.  Reports of a good trolling bite and plans to drift and drag some jigs and artificial baits are my plan.  I wish everyone the best of luck this spring and stay tuned for more fishing reports and posts to Instagram and Fin-Hunters Facebook page @Fishhunt
