  1. NewTown area - Sak

    Fished around Beacon and ***house. I think we kept 5 and threw a few back. Just fished for a few hours this afternoon. I saw a ton of fish on the side imaging, but they were lethargic. Thinking a sunny day might fire them up.

    46 degree water where we were.
    All were caught on minnows.

  2. West Sak

    Pre fished Friday. We made the run out to Hoffland, Lund’s, and Tobacco Gardens. We caught fish in multiple places, and in a range of depths from 4-18 fow. It was a fun day.

    On Saturday, for the PFTF tournament, we had a tough time scratching out fish in our spots. We ended up with 9 lbs and change. 👎👎 The ride out was rough, and the ride back was WORSE! Talk about a beating. I woke up Sunday morning and felt like I had an intense leg day at the gym.
    A buddy almost swamped his boat on the way back. He speared a wave and said it dove like a submarine. Didn’t ...

  3. Audubon

    A few of us fished Audubon, Sunday evening. We ended up catching 8 walleye, and a few pike. All on jig/minnow. We were fishing pretty shallow, in 5-10 fow.

  4. West Sak

    Fished a little bit on Friday, after some break-in time. Fished in the Hunts Along area. 36 degree water. Found 40 way back in the bay. Marked a fair amount of fish. Did not fish much, as we were figuring out the boat.

    My uncle caught his limit spot-locking on a pod and jigging.

    Sounds like it is pretty much ice free now. The Hook should also be ice free any day now.

  5. Mouse River

    Hit the Mouse in Minot for about an hour and a half yesterday evening. Caught 3 table fare walleye. I was using jig/paddletail. The guy next to me was there longer, but caught his 5 with a jig/minnow.

    The current is just right for fishing.
  6. Deepwater

    Four of us went to Deepwater on west Sakakawea. A lot of snow, so we basically setup and hunkered down in two Otters, with a bunch of tip ups out. We were in a bay all by ourselves, and for good reason as it turns out. We were setup off of a sunken point in 24-26 fow. We caught a few cisco, a few pike, a perch, and one walleye.

    I like that area, and will be back.

  7. DL Chain lakes

    Three of us went East for the day. Ended up with a steady bite most of the day. We were setup in what we feel is a traffic area. The fish would come through every 30-90 minutes, and we'd have a little flurry of marks and bites.

    Ended up with our 15 eaters, plus a few throwbacks, and a bonus perch.

    We were in about 6 fow. Where we were there was around 8-9" of ice. It wasn't that really good clear ice, but not horrible ice either.

    We caught fish about equal, between the dead sticks, jigging rods, and tip-ups.

  8. Audubon

    A buddy and I caught a couple eyeballs on the east end.

    There is around 6" of what seemed to be good ice to me.

  9. NewTown

    A few buddies, and myself, fished the NewTown area yesterday. We tried all over, starting way South of the bridge, then going North of the bridge, then back South.

    The further South the better, it seemed. We really did not even mark much North of the bridge.

    We ended up with a handful of nice eyes. We started by graphing in the 30 fow range, but the ones we found were actually in the 15-17 fow range.

    Jigging Raps was the best for us.


    Side note: I had a buddy that did well on 8lb Sunday.

  10. The Hook

    The gaggle and I went fishing Saturday evening and Sunday. We fished around Shell Village, Independence Point and its adjacent shoreline, as well as 8 Pound and Outhouse. We caught fish in all of the spots with our best being in 30 fow and deeper. Our best was on leeches and crawlers.

    75 degree water.

    The water has definitely dropped a couple of feet.

    I know some guys found fish in bunches, but we never did. The fish seemed pretty spread out for us.

    It was a fun weekend of catch and release.

  11. Parshall Bay

    Well, we were down at the lake from Tuesday night until Sunday. The fishing was great all week. It wasn't incredibly consistent as far as a pattern goes. Some days we found them in 7 fow, and some days in 25+ fow.

    On Saturday we fished the Friends of Parshall bay tournament. It was myself, the wife, and our oldest. The tournament had a 23" slot limit with one over. We started out great with 3 right at 23", and filled our 10 easily, but could not find that BIG one. We ended up in 5th. My son may have lost our big fish. He had a tank on, and in his excitement, he ...

    We fished last night and this morning. It is still nuts up in the arm. We fished way back in Oarshall Bay, and also out by Party Point. We found them in 10 fow last night and around 20 fow today. We trolled a bit slower than usual at .5-.7 mph. We used real crawlers and fake. All on slow death hooks. The Matzuo slow death are officially my favorites. The 4” lime green Gulp crawlers were by far the best today. The gulp crawlers seem to perform better at slower speeds. They just turn easier.

    Water is around 73 degrees.
