 Went out on a sunken island on the east end. Got lots of opertunities but for some reason my hook set is way out of whack missed seven yes seven fish managed two to stay on all the way up to the hole. 1 18" 1 20" 
red jigging rapala with minnow head, whole minnow did seam to matter. The rest of my rods sat without a bite.

 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.

 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. Just glad to finally be able to get out.

 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.

It would be a nice day if not for 25 mph wind.  Moved from shallow to deeper water along south side of Redo Island. 1 Small perch, 1 4 lb Slough Shark, Snot Rocket, ok Northern Pike... and one smelt (yeah via hook and line)  Pike was full of smelt and the smelt wouldn't leave our lines alone.  Used minnows, and gulp.  Can't wait for Ice out and go smelting.

I was going to go up to Charging Eagle Bay for the first time this year. Can anybody help me out with some ice and fishing reports.  You can PM me with any info if you would like, I just moved to the Dickinson area from Bismarck and never fished that part of Sakakawea. It would be much appreciated.

Been fishing White Earth Bay quite a bit the last couple weeks. We seem to max out at about 2 walleyes a night. We started out fishing 22' to 28' then moved out to 32+. We  had our best luck in 33' on red hooks/minnows and perch pattern jigs. All our bites came from 4p-6p.

We just hit Tobacco Gardens on Saturday, fished in 27' and caught walleyes/sauger from 10a-noon and again at about 4p. Best day of fishing we've had on the big lake. We switched up bait all day and couldn't pinpoint a favored presentation.

   I tried spearing all day Tuesday in the Douglas Bay and NE bays of the lake.  I saw only 3 small northerns - too small to spear.  The ice was pretty good.  There was very little water on the ice.  The water was really running down the small creeks etc. as the temp. was in the upper 40's.
