 Pike bite was very good especially in the evening. Had to fight some cold and wind but was well worth it. Caught 39 38 and 31 inch fish and about 20 more below the 30 inch mark. All fish were caught on spoons, smelt, and shallow running raphalas. All fish were caught in relatively shallow water (3-6ft).

 Went up to the east end of Lake Sakakawea yesterday to try our luck for some walleyes for probably the last time this ice season (hopefully we will be in the boats soon) and it did not end the way that I had hoped.  We drilled a ton of holes and covered a lot of points and islands and didn't have much to show for it.  Fished depths anywhere from 6 to 50 feet and moved around a lot trying to find fish on the vexilars.  All areas we fished were new to us, at least this ice season.  Should have probably stuck to the areas we have been catching fish all winter.  Ice was still plenty thick where we were, we needed an extension on the auger everywhere we went.  There is getting to be a lot of water on the ice especially along shores.  Use caution this time of year as the ice conditions can change fast, be sure to check ice as you go.

"QUIK"
fish adjacent to the main channel and be somewhat near where they are going to spawn.  I have moved back onto the lake recently cuz the river has been rising the last 2 weeks.  I have found the fish both shallow and deep depending on weather conditions.  I pulled 2 9lbrs out of 5' and 24" on the same day(released both).  

Peace, good luck

The fish are in the areas next to the "main" channels.  I have been finding um on the areas close to where you would find the fish in a month(spawning areas) I have had to move back onto the lake as the river has been rising the last 2 weeks.  I will not give you my locations, but have given you the clues to where ya need to start your pursuit.  I have had good bites both shallow and deep, just make sure you are near the "channel's" 

Peace, & good hunt'n

 Ice Fishing has been good for the most part on Lake Sakakawea this winter.  I have been mostly fishing the east end of the lake with good walleye fishing when the weather cooperates.  The fishing is really weather dependent, if the temps are consistent the walleyes bite good.  When the temps are up and down the fish react with lock jaw, which has been a little bit of a problem this winter.  Lots of fish around in the 14 to 17 inch range with an occasional bigger walleye here and there.  Most of the fish I have caught have come off the islands in 25 to 35 feet of water.  Personally I am waiting for the open water season, but it looks like that will be a while so we might as well get out and enjoy the rest of the ice season.

Be safe out there and Good Luck!

 Hit east end yesterday from 2-7pm. Only had 1 bite until 6 and then it went nuts for a 15 minute stretch. 15-16 inch fish.  Had house in 27FOW.  Ice was very thick. Had to have power head on the ice to barely get through.

 Hey not a fishing report sorry.
I have never fished this lake before but I am just wondering how is ice fishing normally on this lake? And if i decide to give it a try in the next couple years where are some good parts to try? I live by devils lake and fish it all the time. So an area to try on the east side of the lake would be better than the west for me. What are the main species of fish to expect to catch? thanks

 Has anyone been out lately near the Indian Hills Resort area ice fishing? If so is there any tips/tricks that you have found that would be helpful? Thank you!
