If your looking for a night fish lake, it’s Lake Audubon. It’s always the safest bet for action throughout the whole night. Reports I received before heading up were spotty at best, but with limited amount of time I pointed the truck north and headed up.

One of the things I need to add to this report, I got a really late start to this fishing trip. I would be arriving to the lake in darkness, so with that I needed to find a spot close and easy to get to. I have lots of GPS spots marked on this Lake, I decided on one along a point on eastern edge of Lake Audubon. I have had really good luck in years past on this particular point and felt it would be as good of spot as any.

I picked a depth between 18 and 22 foot of water, literally within feet of an old waypoint. It didn’t take me long to get situated, as soon as I put bait down, I had fish on the screen. I was excited and picked up a couple eater size Walleyes immediately. My anticipation for the night bite was pretty good and after a few fish and a couple more swings and misses it was time to get the rattle reels ready.

Unfortunately for me that would be it for the fish activities. Kind of strange for this lake? Usually I don’t get much sleep with the rattle reels down, keeping me busy all night. Only one rattle reel went off last night. I can’t remember the last time I was on Audubon where it didn’t go steady pretty much all night. The only thing I can think of is the full moon and a pretty good weather change.


With the poor fishing I uprooted and I’m moving on to some new bodies of water here today and tomorrow. Who knows where I might end up? I can promise you this, I will give you a report of where I have been. The ice on Audubon was pretty good! 10 to 13 inches roughly. I did see lots of pressure ridges, so if you are ready to go and go up there be careful!

I will have another fishing report coming after I venture around today!

Being back on Sakakawea has been fun! Honestly for me, I love being able to guide on both of North Dakota's big bodies of water this time of year. It keeps you on your toes and I feel I'm a better guide because of it! No time to get complacent. The fish are moving...

Mid Week Fishing Report- August 3rd, 2022

Back on Sakakawea this week certainly isn't a let down. This lake has been on fire since the very beginning this year and hasn't let up a bit. The fish are moving around some. You can still find some really nice fish up shallow. Just need to be a tad more patient with...

So I've been up on Devils Lake now for over a week. Lots of different weather, a couple more bug hatches, and a really strong walleye bite. I get asked to compare or I get asked what lake is better? Totally not a fair question to ask. I just tell folks they are both...

If Lake Sakakawea was a movie, I think we could call it Groundhogs Day. Nothing has changed really with the mood of the fish. They are still eating! They are a bit more scattered as far as depth is concerned. Some days it just doesn't matter, but the bulk of the...
