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.

Missouri River Fishing Report-April 26th, 2022

It's been a spring to remember. Actually, scratch that, it's one to forget. For a lack of a better term, it's been downright sh#%tty. I can only think of two days so far this spring, since the river opened up March 19th where it was nice out. Of course this has been a...

Mid Week Fishing Report-April 20th, 2022

Sorry, I completely forgot to post my mid week fishing report. I had it all written and life must have got in the way and I forgot to hit publish. The fishing has been very little as of late. I'm trying to get out to stay on top of things, but the blizzard slowed me...

Missouri River Fishing Report-April 17th, 2022

So we dug out of this late spring snow here in Bismarck. We got anywhere from 18 to 20 inches of snow. To the north and west, they received a lot more. Now, as I wake up this Easter morning, and look out my window, we are getting yet another shot of snow. Maybe 2 to 4...

Mid Week Fishing Report-April 13th, 2022

Holy moly we got snow, and it's still falling as I write this report! I said it in a few interviews this week, for us this is a short term loss for hopefully a long term gain with the moisture. I would expect our river system to be a tad messed up for about 2 weeks...

Missouri River Fishing Report-April 10th, 2022

The story remains the same out here on the Missouri River near Bismarck. Crappy weather, lots of wind, and some really nice fish. If you are watching the weather closely we are looking like we may have a major setback starting this coming Tuesday. Reports are early,...

Mid Week Fishing Report-April 6th, 2022

If somebody knows how to shut this fan off, can you please get ahold of me with directions. Wow is all I can say this past few days. The tough part for me is I don't see a break from the wind for a few more days yet. In between the wind gusts we are catching some...
