With the cold weather came thicker ice allowing anglers to move out past the bays down on Lake Oahe. Most of the feeding fish on Oahe like to travel along the main river channel. Some of the key areas are Beaver Bay, Cattail Bay, and the State Line. If you can find structure along the channel edge you will catch walleyes like these. Fish in the 14 to 17 inch range have been abundant with really big ones showing up from time to time.
