As we turning the corner and headed towards the back 9 of the fishing before the fall bite. Things continue to be incredibly good up here on Sakakawea.
The fish are being caught all over this body of water at the moment. No need to pile into the packs of boats. Find a point, hump, inside turn along the shoreline and graph everything from 12 foot deep out to 35. You’ll find a pod of fish somewhere.
Still keeping things simple for myself and clients. We are pulling all sorts of different versions of slow death and prop rigs with crawlers and bouncers. Lots of current still, so pay attention to that while fishing. While traveling, be on the lookout for floating logs. There are a couple of career enders out floating around.
I do need to talk about catching fish deep. Please respect the resource. Catch and keep your fish, especially if fishing water deeper than 25 feet. I’ve seen way too many floating fish already this season. I understand it happens, but once you have enough, move up shallow and chase bass etc.
I expect the bite to remain solid. As we continue towards the end of July and August, the fish will be heading out even deeper.
