It’s amazing to me how this weather has straightened out and given us a chance to fish the Missouri River again. It was doom and gloom a couple weeks ago and now it looks like we will at least make the end of November.
Just like I’ve been saying all fall long. The fishing has gotten a little better as the days tick away. If you are paying attention to what is happening down in South Dakota. A bulk of the fish got hung up down south on Oahe. The State line to the 212 bridge is where the biomass stated. Those fish have the forage they love and I don’t blame them for not moving.
We have still seen a pretty good push of what I call eater size fish. The bite has been decent since early October and it continues to be decent right up to Bismarck. You have to move around and be patient. Jigs and minnows are my bait of choice. All those big girls getting caught down south are being caught on cranks. Match the forage base and you’ll catch them.
Seeing what I’m seeing right now, I’m pretty excited about the upcoming spring. I think it’s gonna be one for the records!
