Today we switched gears and headed back up to Lake Sakakawea this morning to see if the fishing was up to Sakakawea standards. My clients this week are from Omaha so of course we talked a lot about Omaha Lancer hockey! We decided to head over to the West Slides across from Deepwater Bay. Upon arrival after about an hour fog delay we were marking good fish on the electronics. Unfortunately these fish were not biting right away this morning. We kept on moving looking for active pods of walleyes. My clients were pulling both lift rigs with minnows and slow death with crawlers. I was on the bowmount trolling motor casting jig raps and also trying to vertically catch them. I had another boat on the water today and they started the morning on Shell. After a couple texts early on I decided my best bet would be to continue to try and get the fish I was marking to bite. Blue collar was a great word for the fishing today. For some reason we could get them to bite, but to keep them hooked up was another story. We were able to extract some nice fish and we were also able to keep some fish for the frying pan. I apologize for no pictures, my phone charger in the boat decided it wasn’t going to work today so my phone died early on after a few texts to the other boat. New cord in the boat tomorrow and for sure more pictures. I have the same crew tomorrow and I’m excited to try the same program tomorrow with a few adjustments to hopefully put more of the biters in the net. Depths today I would say the most active fish were in the 24 foot range but we caught fish as shallow as 10 foot and as deep as 32. Still taking bookings until October 31st!

Lake Sakakawea Fishibg Report-August 7th, 2022

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...

Devils Lake Fishing Report- July 31st, 2022

It's been good! Bug hatches, tons of new food like baby perch and white bass, lots of fresh water shrimp, yet the walleyes on Devils Lake just continue to bite! What's working? Well, it's Devils Lake. Seems like whatever you like to use will work! What's working best?...

Mid Week Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 27th, 2022

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...

Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 24th, 2022

I reluctantly left Lake Sakakawea earlier this week to travel east to Devils Lake. All the Rage (no pun intended) lol has been on how good the fishing has been on both bodies of water. I'm here to tell you Devils Lake is holding its own. Both bodies of water have been...

Mid Week Lake Sakakawea Fishing Report-July 20th, 2022

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...
