I am going to have back to back Fishing reports here one for Sakakawea and also one from the Garrison Dam Tailrace/ Missouri River. I’m probably going to head out on the water locally tonight in the Bismarck-Mandan area also and I’ll report back. Lots going on and I will also try and bring everyone a report on the Tumbleweed Fishing Tournament that is taking place as I type after it’s all said and done. Well, last night we went to one of my favorite places to fish and that is the chutes up in the tailrace. You never know what your going to catch abs last night was no exception! We boated tons of catfish and they were big! We had a drum, sucker, trout, salmon and walleyes all hooked up last night. We kept our presentation simple running 3 way rigs with floaters as trailers. Number 11 and 13 rapalas always seem the best to me or seem to work the best for me. I was a little nervous heading up because I wa told hey had the dam shut off for a bit a couple nights ago due to a power outage but all was good and the the fish were on the feed! Judging by the amount of boats and shore anglers I’d say it isn’t a secret that the fish are biting! It turned into a great night as far as weather was concerned and it wa comfortable. My only problem was I lost power and had no lights for he boat so we didn’t get to stay for the reallly good stuff. All in and all I can’t complain we caught plenty of fish and if you want to see some fat walleyes and catfish check these fish out for yourself! Crazy!

Lake Sakakawea Fishibg Report-August 7th, 2022

Being back on Sakakawea has been fun! Honestly for me, I love being able to guide on both of North Dakota's big bodies of water this time of year. It keeps you on your toes and I feel I'm a better guide because of it! No time to get complacent. The fish are moving...

Mid Week Fishing Report- August 3rd, 2022

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...

Devils Lake Fishing Report- July 31st, 2022

It's been good! Bug hatches, tons of new food like baby perch and white bass, lots of fresh water shrimp, yet the walleyes on Devils Lake just continue to bite! What's working? Well, it's Devils Lake. Seems like whatever you like to use will work! What's working best?...

Mid Week Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 27th, 2022

So I've been up on Devils Lake now for over a week. Lots of different weather, a couple more bug hatches, and a really strong walleye bite. I get asked to compare or I get asked what lake is better? Totally not a fair question to ask. I just tell folks they are both...

Devils Lake Fishing Report-July 24th, 2022

I reluctantly left Lake Sakakawea earlier this week to travel east to Devils Lake. All the Rage (no pun intended) lol has been on how good the fishing has been on both bodies of water. I'm here to tell you Devils Lake is holding its own. Both bodies of water have been...

Mid Week Lake Sakakawea Fishing Report-July 20th, 2022

If Lake Sakakawea was a movie, I think we could call it Groundhogs Day. Nothing has changed really with the mood of the fish. They are still eating! They are a bit more scattered as far as depth is concerned. Some days it just doesn't matter, but the bulk of the...
