  3. Small perch at New Johns

    Fished a couple of times last week at New Johns in about 12 feet of water using jigs and minnow. Caught a lot of 7-9 inch perch and one 16 inch walleye. Most everyone was catching those perch. A lot of people on the ice. A couple of vehicles but I wouldn't drive on. The ice was about 12 inches, maybe a bit less.

  4. East end of Sakakawea (Snake Creek)

    Fished Snake Creek area today. Went out past the last islands from the boat dock, fished in 8-30 feet. Two small perch and two small walleye all from 25-30' of water. Ice was about 6-8". Be careful if fishing this area, best to walk out. Drove over to Ft Stevenson to check it out and the lake is wide open over there. East side boat dock area at Ft Steve is froze over but that is about it. West side dock is wide open.

  5. Sakakawea Ice

    Not a report. Just curious about the ice conditions on the east end from Douglas to the highway. Anyone been out in that area?
  6. Sibley Lake

    Anyone done any fishing on Sibley Lake north of Dawson in the last few days?

  8. Josephine

    Fished the morning of 12/20. It was a busy morning, however everything was tiny. Ice wasn't much to speak of either. After the sun came up, you could tell the lake had froze over a couple of times. Fished in 16 FOW, ice was about 6".
  9. Slough Perch Fishing

    Hit an area slough this weekend looking for perch....used the clicker and hit 112 between 2 guys! We didn't use it until about an hour in or so, likely more around 150 fish or so!

    Average size was 8", biggest were 12" with multiple in the 10-11" range. Also got a few bonus walleye on micro plastics (14-16"). I wasn't looking to keep fish, so everything went back. Fun time though!

    I know I'm not giving a lake name, but it's a teaser to encourage others to get out and off the couch. I guess I could've stayed home and baked cookies with the wife ...
  10. Alkaline lake.

    Was up tonight. Caught two keepers. 4-5 inches of ice. But here is a word of caution. Went up Saturday just to snoop around. Lake was all froze over except by road culverts. Sunday drove up again and there were very large areas of open water all over the lake. Very weird. So just to let everyone know, the ice up there is going to be very sketchy and unpredictable till we get a long stretch of cold weather. So please be careful.
  11. New johns

  12. Lake Metigoshe - Condition Report

    Anyone have any info on how the conditions are on Metigoshe? We are staying at one of the cabins for Christmas and was hoping to have good ice and not a ton of snow...and to catch some slabs!
