Things are still firing on all cylinders up here on Lake Sakakawea! I tell everyone if you haven’t gotten on the water up here yet, you need to. The fish are so dang healthy and feisty right now you think every 18 incher on the hook set is a whopper.
I will say this, watch your electronics closely and the current the lake has right now with all the run off coming in. The lake is getting into a toilet bowl scenario again and it’s moving the fish and the bait daily.
Night crawlers on a slow death hook and or plain hook pulled behind bouncers are pretty difficult to beat. The depths these fish are relating to changes daily also. Water clarity and wind is key. A little stained water is good, a lot stained not so much. Wind is a big factor also and this is moving the fish hard right now. Stay on top of them and pull your crawlers slow and steady and you’ll have a livewell full in no time.
If you are looking to get on the water, I have a few random dates available. More openings in August but not a ton, but get ahold of me and get in on this awesome fishing!
