Lake Sakakawea fishing report

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 west.  However we have been catching limits most of the time but we have to search and work a little harder.  

Lake Sakakawea - Saturday, April 18, 2015

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 day as my first on the water this year. Seen a few other boats but since they were moving a lot I don't think they were doing well either.

red jigging rapala with minnow head, whole minnow did seam to matter. The rest of my rods sat without a bite.
