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 those, but in the end the reward is worth it. If you slide out deeper in let’s say, 16 to 30 foot you’ll find plenty of fish out there also. Just seems like those are a little smaller overall.

My fishing is still the basic slow death rig with a half crawler, especially with clients. Jigging raps however, are really starting to shine! The fish are pulling up on the deeper islands and a person can position yourself on top abs do well both vertical and casting.

I wish I was able to tell everyone to get ahold of me to book a trip. Unfortunately, I’m pretty much filled up in August, and a good portion of September is full also. So some folks are booking for next year or booking a later fall Missouri River trips near Bismarck. Oh, and that naughty word ice fishing on Devils Lake for this winter.

My word is the fishing on fire up here on Sakakawea. I'm almost at the cringing point seeing the fish I'm seeing being cleaned on a daily basis. On days, it's truly remarkable. I do wish the Game and Fish would drop the daily limit to 4 walleyes a day but give an...

Once again the wind seems to be giving us problems up here in North Dakota. It seems like you get at least one in 3 days where the winds are strong enough to keep you off the water. When you can get on the water and things are right the bite is on! One thing I have...
