A little bit of a repeat from last weeks fishing report. For you diehard ice fishermen things are starting to happen. For you diehard open water fishermen, things are still happening.

This week I found myself checking a few smaller bodies of water up and around the Devils Lake area. Things are starting to freeze, but we have wind and warmer temps approaching and that will slow the ice development a bit. Like anywhere, especially here on this state, take it slow and keep checking as you go. NO fish is worth falling through the ice.

I am hearing a few reports of guys catching a few fish through the ice. For myself I’m still on the watching the ice and monitoring ice until December 5th. I have some early ice trips booked that will require due diligence.

I am one of those diehard guys that is still trying to get on the open water on the Missouri River near Bismarck. This week proved to be as good as it gets. The fish were biting and the quality fish were also. They didn’t want it moving fast, but that bite on a jig right now was violently exciting! I personally cannot think of a better way to catch a walleye.

The weather seems to be trending on the warm side. Especially near Bismarck. I would anticipate a few more open water days yet. Up north, temps do seem to stay cooler and hopefully continue to make ice. I’ll keep everyone posted here!

If you are looking to book an ice fishing trip or even an open water trip next spring please get ahold of me.

Well, to a few people these reports suck. I do need to remind everyone, I DO NOT get paid to post a report. I merely do it to help folks gather a little information before venturing out. I will say this, the positive feedback I get, outweighs the negative. So for...

Ice ice baby was the famous vanilla ice song. As the lyrics go, we are making ice in the northern tier of the state. I would say we are a bit behind on the ice development, but in areas it's happening! I spent much of the later portion of this week roaming around the...
