Lake Sakakawea Spearing Report-Feb 3rd, 2019

Well, the weather is playing havoc on all my personal fishing plans. However I’ve had clients taking advantage of the Darkhouse Spearing.
I’d say we are kind of in that period of the winter where things are slower. We are still seeing fish. Contrary to popular belief you don’t spear everything you see.
A few fish have come in hot! If you have never experienced a pike hitting your decoy it’s something else. The worst part is when your outside your shack and you hear it happen lol yeah that may have happened this week.
I would say the spearing is still better than average. We had a 15 pounder and a few smaller fish that were harvested. The 15 pounder is already in the pickle jars I guess and the smaller Pike are headed to the grease. If you haven’t eaten a Northern Pike your missing out! If you go to my YouTube page I have a video out there showing how to clean these tasty morsels boneless. They get a bad rap but once you get good at cleaning them they are an excellent eating fish.
The spearing on Lake Sakakawea right now is being done in 8 to 12 foot of water. The clarity is really good right now. Obviously the sunny days are better with the snow cover on the lake. It’s getting a bit tougher to get around but we are managing ok. I think things are going to get tougher but we are working hard to keep the road open to our shacks.
If your looking to try this unique experience get ahold of me! All the hard work is done and all you have to do is take a seat and watch the under water world and wait for s big gator to take your breath away! Mikepelusooutdoors@gmail.com or messenger me!
