Awesome Sakakawea Vacation

I just returned from a 12 day fishing vacation to Sakakawea.  As most of you know the wind typically blows like a tropical storm in June, but this year I had 10 days out of 12 with no wind and glass water conditions.  Had a blast catching well over 200 walleyes and had the opportunity to fish several new locations because of perfect lake conditons.  I did a little jigging, a little cranking, and a lot of bottom bouncing.  I am hoping to retire in a few more years and am hoping to spend 45 days at a time on Sak. instead of 12.  It's a great place to just lose track of time.  I am not sure I am a believer in walleye chop anymore, we found fish willing to bite under the glass every day.  That reservoir is truly a gem.

I've had a few folks request where the fishing location was.  I fished several locations in Van Hook, Flag Point, Schell Creek, several of the Van Hook sunken structures, mouth of Deepwater Bay, Bears Den Bay, the mouth of the Little Missouri Arm, Indepemdence Point, Pouch Point, shoreline in front of my campsite at Parshall Bay campground, Shell Village, shoreline east of Shell Village.  If one area wasn't producing fish we just moved a couple miles and always found fish willing to bite.  Very fun reservoir to put on some miles and enjoy the scenery.  The old Verado powered 1750 Fisherman is a lot of fun,  it'll click along at 50 MPH and get you from A-B pretty quickly.

Will take note of those. Thanks for sharing those locations.
