Up and down up and down up and down for both the fishing and how you have to fish for these early fall Lake Sakakawea Walleyes. They are in a mood right now to say the least. One day they are on the chow and the next day they don’t seem to want to react to anything, than all the sudden they turn on. I have noticed these fish must really be putting the feed bag on at night under the full moon phase because 5 out of the last 6 days on the water I catch a fish on my first cast. We seem to have a good flurry right away and then the grind begins. But if you stay at it by the end of the day you have one hell of a catch of fish. Jig raps, shiver minnows in shades of white seem to be the most productive on a lot of the days.  We have had some really good days on the parrot color and the fire tiger. Another sleeper way to trigger them to bite us pulling 3 ways with stick baits. We have found over the last week or so switching back and forth in the same areas seems to get the fish to go again. Once one presentation slows we switch over for a bit and so on. We have also seen a lot of young of the year white bass that these walleyes are feasting on. Probably the shades of white jig raps andbthe natural color stick baits have been working extremely well. I anticipate the bite to get better and better! I have 3 trips coming up next week so I’ll have more reports to follow. Also I will be on the river locally out of Bismarck here as well with reports. Still taking bookings up 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...
