Fished by Misty waters caught 11 eater size walleyes between 3 of us. Fishing was steady quit, fishing had other commitments otherwise should have filled out. Drifted with jigs and minnows.
Missouri River (ND Lower Portion)
Went out to Fox Island today at first it was slow. When the sun went down we started catching them very fast.
Fished out of Graner bottoms area caught 2 man walleye limit in 6 hrs pulling cranks, Lot of boat out nice day on water, All males in14-16 inch,
I am new to trolling cranks. How deep are people normally trolling their cranks and what size and color crainkbaits are people doing well on. Also, how much line are you suposed to put out and how fast do you troll them. Not looking for any spots inperticular, just trying to learn this new syle of fishing, Thanks for any help I can get.
Nope. The water came up and the bite shut off completely. I was out for about 3 hours as well and not a nibble and I fished in the same spots where I have been doing well
Has anyone had any luck down by Graner towards the rifle range? We fished for 4 hours anywhere from 5 feet to ten feet. Never had a bite, saw a lot of boats but no nets going up,
3 of us went out Friday. Great day to ditch work. Ended up with 15 eyes from 14"-21". Pitched jigs up in 4FOW. Caught a few cranking also. Water was starting to clear up a bit but now this rain might set us back a bit again.
Managed to get out on the river Thursday Friday and Saturday. I thought things would be a little hotter than they were. Started out thursday morning south of Graner and managed to find some fish there. Nothing real great in size. Then Friday morning we were second boat in at hazelton around 6:45am and fished Eckroth and down south of ft. rice and only managed 1 fish in 5 hours there, when we pulled the boat out at hazelton we got checked by game warden and i had asked him how some of the other boats were doing and he said the 4 boats before us had zero fish.
Fished out of the Rifle Range on Saturday. Water clarity had improved a bit as you could see your jig down about 6 inches. Didn't have a bite in about 3 hours of fishing. Did not see a net go out in any other boats. Water temp was about 39 on average so as that goes up this week and clarity improves I think we'll see an improvement.
Anyone fished the tailrace lately debating whether or not to give it a try this weekend
