We have had boats on Sakakawea for the past couple of weeks pretty steady with good results for the most part.  The reason I say for the most part is there were a few days that the weather made the fishing slow down either because of the gusty winds or a little cold front.  Most fish we are catching are coming on spinners and slow death rigs in a variety of depths, working main lake points. ...Read more

We have switched gears a little bit the last week and have had all our guides fishing mainly Sakakawea and for good reason.  The fishing has really started to heat up on the Big Lake with limits of walleyes coming in consistently from the East end all the way out to the beacon.  We have been catching most of our fish on crawler rigs behind bottom bouncers, however we have caught a few on crank...Read more

Walleye Fishing is starting to heat up on certain parts of the lake.  We have had one guide working the Van Hook area with some real good success with limits coming in.  The target depth has been in the 12 to 18 foot range.  Bottom bouncer rigs with crawlers have been the ticket for us.  

We have also been catching a few fish around the Douglas Bay area but it's not as consistent as out...Read more

 Made it out finally after a long spring, got to try out the new boat and was able to take a father/daughter duo out fishing. Competition was high as they had a $5 bet on biggest fish! We ended up keeping 13 eyes, fish came from 6-20 feet. Each spot we went had fish at different...Read more

Went to Hunts Along on Friday and did not fair well. Tried catching some sauger but they would not take in 40-55' of water just off the break. Used jig and minnow and nothing. Went back into the bays as far as I could go and found 45 degree water and all I was able to catch was a 12-15lb pike in 8ft of water. Had some followers as well but no takers. Tuff day of fishing but still had a great...Read more

 Fished around the island at Beulah Bay, caught pike in both 10 fow and 24 fow.  Minnows and herring were the ticket on tipups. Bite shut down around 6:00 or so.  Caught one 6.5lb fish and a 10lb fish.  Had another one that was up to the hole but but off the line.  I bet that one was about a 7lb fish.Read more

 Fished the east end of sakakawea. Saw a handful of really nice perch on the camera but was using bigger baits trying to target walleye. In hindsight it would have been smarter to go after the perch. Fished 32' of water and ended up catching a couple and missing a couple. The bites we did have were within 20 minutes of each other right before dark. The ones we caught were around 15-16 inches....Read more

 Fished yesterday West of beulah bay. Ended up getting my 5 from 15"-17". 24' of water. Caught about 20 fish total, a lot in the 14" range. Marked continuous smelt schools out in the 30'-35'. Moved in shallower on the point to get away from them and that's where I found fish that would bits. Caught all fish from 4:30-7:00. Read more
